West Ham have a narrow advantage at half-time in this afternoon's Premier League clash against Reading.
A sixth minute Craig Bellamy strike - the first goal scored in the Premier League this afternoon - was the only goal in a fairly even first half at the Madejski Stadium.
The Hammers went into the game with Dean Ashton making his first start since the 2005/06 season, and it took just six minutes for his partnership with new boy Bellamy to pay dividends.
Bellamy drove home across the face of keeper Hahneman after being set up by Lee Bowyer, starting again due to the absent Ljungberg, Dyer and Faubert.
More to follow at the final whistle.
West Ham United: Green, Neill, McCartney, Ferdinand, Upson, Mullins, Noble, Bowyer, Etherington, Bellamy, Ashton.
Subs: Wright, Spector, Gabbidon, Boa Morte, Cole
