On This Day: John Moncur steers the Hammers past Leicester City

 

West Ham United recorded their second home league win of the season with a 1-0 victory over Leicester City at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 1996.

A solitary second half strike from John Moncur was the difference between the two sides in a fiery encounter that saw seven yellow cards and a late red for Foxes defender Steve Walsh.

A slow start to the 1996/97 season would ultimately be offset by a fine run of form in the Spring for Harry Redknapp’s side, who finished the season in 14th place.
