Wigan v West Ham Utd: half-time report

Filed: Saturday, 28th April 2007
By: Matthew O'Greel

West Ham have a priceless lead at the break in this afternoon's game at Wigan.

Luis Boa Morte chose the perfect time to register his first goal for the club when he struck midway through the half to give United a much deserved lead.

Despite starting nervously Alan Curbishley's side soon took hold of the game and a half-time advantage was no less than they deserved as they controlled the first-half for long periods.

And with a little more luck that lead could have been even greater; both Carlos Tevez - stupidly booed on every touch by the home supporters - and Bobby Zamora went close to doubling the lead.

Wigan - whose stand-in goalkeeper John Filan was culpable for the goal after coming out of his area unnecessarily - also lost captain Arjen De Zeeuw to injury during the opening 45.

More for you at the final whistle ...
