By: Staff Writer

West Ham are level at the break in this afternoon's Premier League clash with Newcastle having thrown away an early two goal advantage.

Despite racing into an early two goal lead the Hammers were pegged back by two goals in the final five minutes of the half by the visitors who, until that point, had seemed down and out.

Mark Noble opened the scoring for United in the tenth minute before Dean Ashton made it 2-0 shortly after.

But Newcastle grabbed two late goals through Martins and Geremi to sqaure the game at 2-2 going into the break.

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

West Ham United: Green, Paintsil, McCartney, Neill, Tomkins, Faubert, Noble, Parker, Ljungberg (Boa Morte), Zamora, Ashton.

Subs: Solano, Walker, Cole, Mullins.

Newcastle United: Harper, Beye, Enrique, Edgar, Taylor, Butt, Geremi, Barton, Martins, Owen, Viduka.

Subs: Forster, Duff, Diatta, Smith, Carroll.
