On this day: Hammers win five-goal Forest thriller


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

West Ham United edged an FA Cup thriller against Nottingham Forest on this day in 2003.

The Hammers twice found themselves behind against their Championship visitors, but rallied to secure victory late on thanks to a Jermain Defoe goal.

Earlier Defoe and Joe Cole had struck to cancel out strikes from future Hammer Marlon Harewood and Andy Reid, helping the hosts eventually triumph 3-2.
