Tottenham vs West Ham United: half-time report


Filed: Sunday, 20th November 2005
By: Matthew O'Greel


West Ham trail by a single goal at half-time in this afternoon's big London derby.

Mido scored the only goal of the half on 16 minutes with a looping header from the edge of the box after some sloppy defending by the Hammers.

The Hammers went into the game without Nigel Reo-Coker and Roy Carroll, who were replaced by Mark Noble and Shaka Hislop respectively.

Tottenham started the livelier of the two sides and both Edgar Davids and Robbie Keane tested Shaka Hislop inside the opening ten minutes.

West Ham failed to heed the early warnings, and the central defensive pairing of Anton Ferdinand and Danny Gabbidon were caught napping in the 16th minute when they allowed Mido to latch on to a hopeful lob and nod the ball over a stranded Hislop.

The Hammers' best chance of the half fell to Mark Noble who thought he had equalised five minutes before the break after he lifted the ball over Paul Robinson from close range - but he was (correctly) adjudged offside.

Despite being behind, Alan Pardew's side have given a reasonable account of themselves in a lively first-half which saw Teddy Sheringham and Edgar Davis booked after the pair clashed following a sliding tackle by the 39-year-old Hammer.

More to follow at the final whistle.

West Ham United: Hislop; Ferdinand, Gabbidon, Repka, Konchesky; Mullins, Benayoun, Etherington, Noble; Harewood, Sheringham.

Tottenham: Robinson; King, Stalteri, Lee, Dawson; Davids, Jenas, Carrick, Tainio; Keane, Mido.
