West Ham have their noses in front at the break thanks to Shaun Newton's first ever goal for the club.
The former Wolves player - who cost the Hammers just £10,000 when he signed from the Championship side last year - struck 14 minutes into the game to notch his first ever senior goal for West Ham.
Bobby Zamora set up the goal; his cross from the left-hand side being converted from the penalty spot by Newton, making only his seventh start of the season.
City thought they had equalised later in the half but former-Hammer Trevor Sinclair saw his 'goal' disallowed.
We'll have more for you at the final whistle.
