West Ham 3 Forest 2

This was yet another game of two halves for West Ham. A very early goal for Obinna gave West Ham fans the hope that this might be an easy game. However West Ham very quickly reverted to type and sat deep and let Forest dominate most of the half.

Forest's dominance in the first half was rewarded by goals from Adebola and McGoldrick and they looked like they would head into half-time with a deserved lead. However a few minutes before the half-time whistle Obinna got West Ham back into the game with a wonder goal. Obinna flew down the left wing and then unleashed a shot from tight on the touchline which beat Camp in goal.

After the break West Ham were a different team and took charge of the game. It only took West Ham seven minutes to grab the lead. Reid was clearly pulled back by Lynch in the area and the ref gave a penalty. Lynch deserved to be sent off but escaped with a yellow card. Obinna then stepped up and fired the ball home to claim his hat-trick.

As the half progressed West Ham had a number of other chances to extend their lead but failed to convert. This resulted in a bit of an uncomfortable finish to the game when Forest had a few good chances, from Gunter, Morgan and McGoldrick, to get back into the tie.

However West Ham managed to hold on and go through to the next round.

Good win today, with quite a few second-string players, such as Reid who I think had a good game. Also some players coming back from injury such as Ilunga and Jacobson. Good to see two proper full-backs for a change. We even had a chance to give young Nouble a run-out, who looked lively when he came on. An enjoyable afternoon at The Boleyn.

I agree with the write up Keir, that's pretty much how I saw it.
