West Ham Utd v Derby: half time report

Filed: Saturday, 19th April 2008
By: Staff Writer

Bobby Zamora's first goal since August seperates the sides at the break in this afternoon's Premier League clash with Derby at the Boleyn Ground.

Zamora struck from close range after 20 minutes to score the only goal of a first half dominated by the Hammers.

Alan Curbishley adopted a youthful approach to his team giving starts to both James Tomkins and Freddie Sears in the absence of Anton Ferdinand (hamstring) and Dean Ashton, who reported ill ahead of the kick-off.

After dominating the opening 20 minutes the Hammers got their reward via the head of Zamora who latched on to a Lucas Neill free kick to nod United ahead.

Derby's best chance of the half fell to Robbie Savage in the closing stages but Robert Green was alert enough to tip the former Blackburn and Leicester midfielder's close range header over the bar.

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

West Ham United: Green, Pantsil, Neill, Tomkins, McCartney, Faubert, Parker, Noble, Ljungberg, Sears, Zamora.

Subs: Walker, Mullins, Solano, Boa Morte, Cole.

Derby County: Carroll, Mears, Stubbs, Todd, Leacock, Jones, Ghaly, Savage, Lewis, Sterjovski, Miller.

Subs: Price, McEveley, Moore, Feilhaber, Villa.
