West Ham Utd 2 Barnsley 0

West Ham are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup - despite making hard work of it against Barnsley at the Boleyn this afternoon.

Jonathan Spector, whose brace against Manchester United was the inspiration behind West Ham's recent Carling Cup quarter final success scored the game's only goal on 29 minutes in the midst of a purple patch for United, who enjoyed near total domination in the opening 45 minutes.

However Avram Grant's side were made to look distinctly second best after the break by the Championship side, who went close to sending the tie to a replay on a number of occasions as West Ham failed to build on their slender first half lead - until sub Frederic Piquionne sealed the win in the third minute of injury time.

We'll have a full match report for you soon...

''I hear Martin O'Neill is firm favaourite to be the new Hammers boss but if money is tight, just like at Villa, he would eventually quit.

Martin Allen should be new boss if the Hammers get relegated bringing Tim Breacker in as his assistant.''
