On This Day: Ten-man West Ham secure stunning Blackpool 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 had a night to remember as midfielder Henri Lansbury went in goal to help the Hammers win at Blackpool.

The Irons travelled to Bloomfield Road and went into a two goal lead through James Tomkins and Nicky Maynard before Kevin Phillips pulled one back.

West Ham were then reduced to ten men when Robert Green was sent off for a foul on Roman Bednar and, with no goalkeeper on the bench, Lansbury donned the gloves!

The Arsenal loanee kept a clean sheet for the final 35 minutes, while Gary O'Neil and Ricardo Vaz Te added further goals at the other end to complete a memorable 4-1 victory!
