On This Day: Bonds, Brooking and Lampard score in Wolves win


Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...

West Ham United thrashed Wolverhampton Wanderers 5-2 on this day in 1974.

Playing on a muddy Boleyn Ground pitch, Billy Bonds stepped up and put the Hammers ahead from the penalty spot after Kenny Hibbitt was adjudged to have deliberately handled a Keith Coleman cross.

Trevor Brooking made it 2-0 a minute before half-time when he latched onto Bobby Gould's pass and slide the ball under goalkeeper Phil Parkes.

Frank Lampard scored the goal of the night on 62 minutes, thumping home a sensational half-volley from 25 yards after Brooking had scooped a free-kick into his path.

John Richards pulled one back before Billy Jennings made it 4-1, shooting home after Parkes had parried Brooking's rasping shot.

Gould added a fifth on 85 minutes, converting with a right-foot finish against his old club after Bonds and Brooking had combined.

Steve Kindon got a late consolation for Wolves, but the Irons would not be denied a superb First Division victory.

Watch all five West Ham goals again here!
