Classic match

Middlesbrough 1-2 West Ham United
Premier League
22 December 2007

The Hammers made the long journey north to Middlesbrough seven years ago today and ensured it would be a worthwhile one with a last minute winner.

Boro had won their previous two games against Derby and Arsenal but were brought back down to earth by the Hammers, despite taking a 40th minute lead through a Stewart Downing free-kick.

West Ham strengthened in resolve and levelled on the stroke of half-time when Dean Ashton's superb volley left Mark Schwarzer with no chance.

The Hammers pressed on after the interval and were rewarded at the death when Scott Parker weaved his way through the home defence before shooting into the corner.
