West Ham Utd v Reading: live


Filed: Saturday, 31st March 2012
By: Staff Writer


West Ham could move to within three points of current Championship leaders Southampton should they manage to defeat an in-form Reading at the Boleyn Ground this afternoon.

Sam Allardyce's side take on the Royals in this afternoon's 3:00pm kick-off knowing that a win could see them rise above today's visitors and back into the automatic promotion places, where they have spent all but four weeks of the season since the beginning of October.

Live updates from Upton Park will be provided throughout the afternoon on our match thread, which may be found here: www.kumb.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=139441.

And for those supporters unable to attend this afternoon's match, a number of streams should be available from which you may watch the action live via the web.
