West Ham Utd v Crystal Palace: half time report


Filed: Saturday, 25th February 2012
By: Staff Writer


It's been a rather uninspiring opening 45 minutes at the Boleyn in the lunchtime clash with Crystal Palace.

West Ham, who could go four points at the top with a win today have barely threatened Julian Speroni's goal with lone striker Nicky Maynard failing to make much of an impact.

Most of the action has been at the other end of the field with Rob Green called into action frequently - most notably when he made a stunning save to turn over a deflected effort as the first half teetered towards the break.

The Hammers have also been slightly hampered by some particularly picky decisions from referee Graham Salisbury, who despite picking up on a number of minor infringements failed to award a free kick when James Tomkins was virtually decapitated early on.

We'll have a full report for you at the final whistle.
