Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 West Ham United
Capital One Cup quarter-final

West Ham United produced a superb turnaround to claim their second White Hart Lane win of the season on Wednesday.

Matt Jarvis and Modibo Maiga notched inside the final ten minutes to cancel out Emmanuel Adebayor's opener and send the Hammers into the semi-finals of the Capital One Cup.

Sam Allardyce's men produced a wonderful response to Adebayor's goal, with Maiga's half-hour appearance from the bench proving central to their success.

The 4,200 travelling fans revelled in another win in north London - after waiting 14 years since their last success at the venue - to set up a last-four tie with Manchester City.

The hosts gave a signal of intent in the very first minute when Aaron Lennon showed considerable pace to burst past Razvan Rat down the flank and cross low. Gylfi Sigurdsson's inital shot was blocked, then Jermain Defoe pulled his effort wide when he really should have hit the target.

Next it was Andros Townsend's turn to try his luck as he moved onto his left foot from 25-yards and sent a fierce effort whistling just past Adrian's near post.

Spurs were finding joy by attacking down the right early on, but their next chance started with a move down the opposite flank as Townsend crossed with ten minutes on the clock and Emmanuel Adebayor headed wide.

Defoe tried his luck with an ambitious left footed volley after he latched onto a lofted ball into the left channel, but his shot was closer to the upper tier than the goal.

The Hammers were undoubtedly under the cosh, but weathered that early storm and began to restrict Tottenham's chances.

Hugo Lloris had to make his first save of the evening on 35 minutes when Carlton Cole's snapshot needed to be gathered down low to his right.

At the other end, Adebayor sent a shot twice the height of the goal after Lennon cut back and it was 0-0 at the break.

Ten minutes after the restart, Danny Rose continued the pattern of shooting too high after he moved into a central position, screamed for the ball, received it and curled off target.

West Ham looked to be growing in confidence, but just as they forced their first corner after 66 minutes, Spurs broke with devastating effect.

Townsend spread the play out wide to the left, where Defoe advanced and crossed into the box, where Adebayor was arriving like a train to smash home via the underside of the crossbar.

The Hammers responded well though and sub Mo Diame almost levelled with his first contribution when his strong shot needed a good save from Lloris after Maiga flicked on well.

Maiga's flick-ons were proving profitable and another dropped at the feet of Matt Taylor on 76 minutes, but as he ran out of space he could not find the power to beat Lloris.

West Ham were not beaten and with ten minutes left the equaliser came, Jarvis ramming home after Maiga won another header for Taylor to control and lay off.

If the travelling fans were happy enough at that effort, they were sent into dreamland five minutes later when the Hammers completed the turnaround.

Ravel Morrison started the move by spreading play out to Diame on the right, who clipped a cross over for Maiga to climb high and head home.

The Hammers even went close to extending the advantage in added time, as Maiga thundered a shot against the bar and Jack Collison drew a save from Lloris, but two goals were enough on a memorable evening at White Hart Lane.
