Reserves Stunned By Chelsea Late Show

WEST Ham United Reserves were unlucky to lose 2-1 to Chelsea at Aldershot, the hosts scoring two late goals to cancel out Hammers first-half lead.

In a game of few chances on a bitterly cold night, Kevin Keen's team took the lead with a superb Moses Ashikodi volley on 35 minutes.

Hammers had the lead at half-time against a Chelsea team that included highly-rated defender Robert Huth. However, Chelsea struck twice in the final ten minutes to snatch all three points, leaving Kevin Keen to reflect on another strong performance from his team that had failed to yield a result.

WHU: Reed; Laws, Brevett, Melville, Blewitt, Cohen, Sofiane (Stokes 77), Wright, Ashikodi, Pearson (Allen 66), Reid. Subs unused: Henry, Behcet (GK), Bunce, Shaw.
