Wes Ham United 1,
WEST HAM UNITED: KEVIN Nolan scored an injury-time equaliser to end 80 minutes of stubborn Sunderland resistance and earn his West Ham side a point at Upton Park, writes James Colasanti.
Steven Fletcher kept up his fine form in front of goal by firing the visitors into an early lead and it looked like they would hang on for their first league win of the campaign.
But Hammers captain Nolan, so often the saviour of his side with important goals, hooked home the equaliser in the dying seconds to maintain their unbeaten home start to the season.
West Ham (4-5-1): Jaaskelainen; O’Brien, Reid, Demel; Taylor (Benayoun 60), Diame, Nolan, Noble, Vaz Te (Jarvis 60); Cole (Maiga 77). Sunderland (4-4-2): Mignolet; Rose, O’Shea, Bramble, Gardner; McClean, Colback, Larsson (Vaughan 61); Sessegnon (Campbell 70) (Meyler 90), Fletcher.
Gazette MOM: John O’Shea (Sunderland).
