West Ham United are level at the break in this afternoon's Premier league clash with Wigan Athletic.
The Latics - minus Chairman Dave Whelen who, coincidentally, is on holiday - have held the Hammers despite losing leading scorer Antoine Sibierski to what looked like a hamstring injury late on in the half.
Alan Curbishley's side had the better of play overall and managed to hit the back of the net towards the end of the half only for referee Andre Marriner to rule the strike offside.
The Hammers also saw a strong penalty appeal turned down when Mark Noble was manhandled in the box - not so, according to the man in black.
Wigan's best chance of the half came in the 42nd minute when Jason Koumas' strike cannoned back off the woodwork with Robert Green beaten.
We'll have more for you at the final whistle.
