On This Day: Last-gasp Hammers down Cardiff

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

West Ham United left it late but gained all three points against Cardiff City on this day in 2005.

Carl Fletcher's 89th minute strike at the Boleyn Ground saw off his countrymen and earned his team a valuable win en route to the Championship Play-Offs.

Alan Pardew's men would go on to win promotion that season, defeating Preston North End in the Play-Off final at the Millennium Stadium.
