Wolves v West Ham Utd: half time report

Filed: Saturday, 16th October 2010
By: Staff Writer

West Ham are lucky to be just one goal behind at the break after a desperately poor first half at Molineux.

Avram Grant's side have been distinctly second-best in the opening 45 minutes and were little more than passengers as the home side racked up a string of chances that should have seen them confortably ahead at half time.

Robert Green - initially at fault for the half's only goal, a Matt Jarvis volley after just nine minutes - came back to make two world-class saves which ensured the Hammers remain in a game that threatened to run away from them.

However the home side - who came into this game on the back of four successive defeats - were still guilty of spurning a host of opportunities against a West Ham defence, minus late withdrawal Matthew Upson, that looked as inept as it did at any point last season.

At the other end Kieron Dyer has looked the most lively of United's attacking unit, but like his fellow team mates failed to make any major inroads in the final third.

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