On this day: Reid strike sees off Millwall


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

It was on this date in the calendar eight years ago that ten-man West Ham United saw off Millwall in a Boleyn Ground derby.

Kevin Nolan was sent off with just nine minutes played, but the Hammers made light of that disadvantage by moving in front thanks to Carlton Cole just before half time.

Liam Trotter levelled for the visitors midway through the second half, but their celebrations were short-lived, as Winston Reid soon restored the advantage, which the Hammers held to the end.
