Revenge is Sweet!

Feels good to get that dreadful shabang that was Saturday's game at the reebok stadium out of our season with a 2-1 cup win over the same side which sees us advance to the quarter finals. An away tie vs Man City will pose its own problems but for now we can just bask in the glory of our 5th time lucky defeat of our bogey side Bolton Wanderers!

An early own goal from Nicky Hunt saw the Hammers edge in front before Nolan smashed in a ferosious equaliser to lead the teams into a 1-1 draw at half time. Little to crow about in the second half apart from Matty Etherington getting the ball stuck under his feet 2 yards from the goal, it took extra time to seperate these familiar opponents. Yossi Benayoun picked out Harewood's near post run as he lifted the ball neatly over the giant Jussi Jaskaleinen.

2-1 to the cockney boys! It wasn't always pretty but a job well done.
