Leicester v West Ham Utd: half time report

Filed: Monday, 23rd April 2012
By: Staff Writer

Winston Reid's equaliser has kept alive West Ham's faint hopes of automatic promotion.

The Kiwi centre half pounced at the near post to bring Sam Allardyce's side back into the game after Jermaine Beckford has given the Foxes the lead against the run of play.

The Hammers enjoyed near total domination of the first half here at the King Power Stadium but fell behind on 25 minutes when Beckford rose unmarked at the far post to to nod home the opening goal.

However the home side's lead was to last just 14 minutes before New Zealand international Reid was first to Matt Taylor's low cross.

Carlton Cole had West Ham's best chance of the opening 20 minutes when he found himself through on goal but the striker delayed his shot allowing a defender to make a crucial intervention.

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