FC Slovacko 2
West Ham United 2

by Staff Writer


An entertaining pre-season friendly ended in stalemate as FC Slovacko came from two down with just five minutes to play to earn a share of the spoils.

A first half strike from Mark Noble gave West Ham a half time advantage here in their latest pre-season friendly, the first of three in Austria this week.

And when new signing Ashley Fletcher registered his first goal in a West Ham shirt just six minutes after entering the fray, it looked as if Slaven Bilic's side would go on to comfortably record their first win of pre-season.

However two late strikes from the Czech First League side stunned the Hammers to earn a draw. The first, on 85 minutes came from Eldar Civic who forced the ball home from close range.

And with just seconds of the game remaining, Slovacko gave their small but noisy band of travelling fans the perfect ending when the Bosnian midfielder grabbed his second, with substitute goalkeeper Raphael Spiegel perhaps slightly at fault.

Next up for the Hammers is a potentially far tougher test against Russian Premier League side Rubin Kazan, also here in Austria, tomorrow afternoon.
