Lomy Returns Successfully

West Ham reserves drew 1-1 with Leicester City on Wednesday evening as Steve Lomas made his comeback for half a game.

Paul Broker gave the visitors the lead on the quarter hour, while Greg Pearson, who has featured in the first team squad recently, scored a second half equaliser with a penalty after being fouled.

Both Greg and Chris Cohen, just back from suspension following a sending off, were booked.

Neil Mellor also made his comeback, hitting the bar early on, and, unlike Steve - for whom a full game was never intended - has an outside chance of making the first team squad at the weekend.

TEAM: Bywater, McLenehan, Blewitt, Lomas [Bunce], Ferdinand [Tattum], Lumsden, Noble M, McMahon, Garcia, Mellor [Pearson], Cohen.

Subs unused: Forde, Laws.
