West Ham Utd 1 Watford 1

Super sub Ricardo Vaz Te's late strike salvaged a point for Sam Allardyce's underperforming West Ham side against Watford at the Boleyn Ground tonight.

Despite controlling the vast majority of the game, the Hammers has to rely on the Portuguese forward's second goal since joining the club in order to get them out of jail on a frustrating night.

The midweek curse - which has seen West Ham win just one of their home matches under the lights this season (drawing two and losing the remaining three) - struck again as Watford came perilously close to grabbing all three points.

The Hornets - who have managed just three wins away from Vicarage Road all season - were a matter of minutes away from winning for a third successive time at the BG after Murrays's goal out of nothing gave the visitors an 68th minute lead.

The freak goal - which came completely against the run of play - was scored just as the Hammers were appearing to run out of ideas. Murray's speculative effort was going wide before taking a deflection off Abdoulaye Faye that turned it into the corner of Rob Green's net.

Fortunately for a disappointing West Ham, Vaz Te - who looked lively from the moment he entered the fray - popped up with just two minutes of normal time remaining to fire home from close range and earn United a point - the very least they deserved for their efforts.

More to follow soon...

''A freak goal scored by an extremely lucky Watford side against a highly-skilled West Ham side assembled by a highly-skilled manager on a budget that resembled a banker's bonus enabled WHU to achieve what was a glorious point!

THE REAL POINT IS - DO YOU BELIEVE IT!?''
