On This Day: Sheringham and Harewood secure vital Wigan win


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

West Ham United's promotion challenge looked to be fading when Alan Pardew's side went on a five-match winless run in March 2005.

However, that challenge was rekindled by a 2-1 Championship win at Wigan Athletic on this day 15 years ago!

Goals from Teddy Sheringham and Marlon Harewood saw West Ham recover from a Jason Roberts goal down to secure a vital victory.

Pardew's side went on to finish sixth before going up through the Play-Offs, defeating Crystal Palace 1-0 at the Millennium Stadium to secure promotion.
