On this day: Hammers take first step on road to Wembley

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

West Ham United took a step along the road to Wembley glory on this day 40 years ago, defeating West Bromwich Albion in an FA Cup third-round replay.

Having drawn 1-1 at the Hawthorns three days previously, the teams reconvened in east London to settle the tie.

Goals from Geoff Pike and Trevor Brooking ensured the Second Division Hammers saw off their top-flight visitors and started the cup run which would end in glory against Arsenal in May.
