Birmingham City v West Ham Utd: half time report


Filed: Saturday, 6th November 2010
By: Staff Writer


A spirited - yet ultimately goalless - first half from Avram Grant's Hammers has given the travelling fans plenty to talk about at the break.

West Ham's first half shot count reads 9 to home side Birmingham's 2 - yet crucially the game remains locked at 0-0 at half time here at St Andrews.

The Hammers, reverting to a 451/433 with Carlton Cole retained in the starting line-up have looked lively and the more likely side to score following a confident opening. Cole alone has enjoyed four shots on target but failed to convert any - thanks mainly to City 'keeper Ben Foster who has excelled between the posts and whose fingertip save from one Cole effort deserves a mention.

Elsewhere Frederic Piquionne and Victor Obinna have looked lively whilst Valon Behrami and Luis Boa Morte have been strong alongside Scott Parker in the middle of the park. Rob Green, for once, has enjoyed a relatively quiet first half; here's hoping that continues.

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