Bolton v West Ham Utd: half time report

Filed: Saturday, 12th April 2008
By: Staff Writer

West Ham are level at the break in this afternoon's Premier League clash with Bolton.

Despite having spent the majority of the first half on the backfoot Alan Curbishley's side remain on equal terms at the interval.

However Bolton will be wondering how they aren't ahead having had two efforts cleared off the line - and another disallowed for offside.

Jon Spector was on hand after 16 minutes to avert the danger after a looping Kevin Davis nod into the mix appeared to be crossing the line.

15 minutes later Scott Parker had to be equally alert to clear a second header from Davis up and over the bar.

Bolton thought they had taken the lead for a third time five minutes from the break but were denied when Kevin Nolan's effort was ruled out due to Diouf being called offside.

Meanwhile United's only meaningful effort of goal in the fist period came three minutes before the break when Parker's effort from the edge of the box was deflected wide of Bolton's goal.

Once again there was the almost obligatory injury for the Hammers; Anton Ferdinand being the latest casualty having been forced off after less than a minute's play.

We'll have more for you at the final whistle.

''Alan Curbishley? I would not let him manage my son's team. The idiot plays Boa Morte every week although he is the worst player the Hammers ever bought. Sack him please.''
