Sheringham Debuts In Posh Draw

Teddy Sheringham made his West ham debut in Saturday's 1-1 draw at Peterborough and played the full 90 minutes without any problems.

Initially, he started upfront with Bobby Zamora, and later played a more withdrawn role when Marlon Harewood entered the fray.

A crowd of 4,063, of whom some 1,700 were Hammers fans, watched as Christian Dailly put West Ham ahead from a Michael Carrick corner after Nigel Reo-Coker had had a blistering shot deflected over the bar by a Posh defender.

But Calum Willock, who had earlier broken through to force a save from Steve Bywater, this time stroked the ball home.  Much to the  disappointment of the West Ham keeper who clearly felt he was left exposed. 

Teddy Sheringham came closest to giving West Ham a winner when his left foot shot hit the side netting, and Bobby Zamora headed wide from a cross by Matthew Etherington, who was playing against his former club for the first time.

West Ham: Bywater, Repka (Ward), Brevett (Mullins), Carrick (Noland), Melville (Ferdinand), Dailly, McAnuff (Harewood), Reo-Coker, Sheringham, Etherington (Cohen).
