On this Day: Hammers prevail in nine-goal Bradford thriller


Take a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with Basset & Gold.

West Ham United triumphed in one of the most remarkable games in both Premier League and Boleyn Ground history, edging out Bradford City by the odd goal in nine 19 years ago today.

The Hammers came from 4-2 down to score a thrilling 5-4 victory in a match that saw Paolo Di Canio and Academy starlets Joe Cole and Frank Lampard inspire a dramatic late comeback.

Harry Redknapp’s entertainers trailed 1-0, led 2-1, fell 4-2 down and then finally pulled off an amazing win when Lampard – who had previously argued with Di Canio before the Italian netted the penalty which made the score 3-4 – scored with seven minutes to go.
