Last minute agony for stiffs

West Ham's reserves blew the chance to challenge the leaders at the top of the FA Premier Reserve League South last night by conceding a last minute equaliser at Leicester.

Kevin Keen's side had led 2-1 thanks to second half goals from Hogan Ephraim and Ishmael Welsh after initially falling behind 19 minutes into the second period.

But despite finding themselves reduced to ten men after defender Liam Norvel was sent off five minutes from time the home side - who had lost four of their first five games of the season - grabbed a point thanks to a 30-yard free-kick from Alan Sheehan.

The Hammers had sent a strong side out, with Keen's team including plenty of players with first team experience.

Shaka Hislop, James Collins, Elliott Ward, Chris Cohen, David Bellion and Hogan Ephraim had all played for the first team just seven days earlier in the 4-2 Carling Cup win at Sheffield Wednesday.

Next up for the Hammers is a trip to Chelsea on Monday, 10 October. Keen's side are currently fourth in the Reserve League with 10 points from six games behind Tottenham (10 from four), Charlton (13 from five) and leaders Arsenal (13 from six).

West Ham United: Hislop (Reed 45), Henry, Clarke, Collins (White 10), Ward, Cohen, Bellion (Welsh 65), Cowley, Stokes, Ephraim, Williams.
