Coventry 1 West Ham 2
Lucky, lucky West Ham. For most of this game you couldn't see where a West Ham goal was going to come from. As it happened the first West Ham goal came courtesy of a Coventry player.
Just four minutes after Jay Tabb had given Coventry the lead, heading home Isaac Osbourne's cross from a couple of yards, Marcus Hall put the ball in the back of his own net to make it 1-1. The own goal came from a Neill free-kick into the box, that was cleared to Boa-Morte 18 yards out. Boa-Morte shot left-footed and Hall's attempt at blocking the shot put the ball past his own keeper.
In the dying seconds, with the game looking like it was going to extra time, Boa-Morte headed the ball on into the penalty area. Carlton Cole looked second best to get to the ball first but shook off a defender and slotted the ball home from 12 yards.
Not the most convincing win but a win nevertheless and without the punishment of extra-time.
