On This Day: Jelavic strikes late to tame Wolves

 

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 through to the FA Cup fourth round as Nikica Jelavic's late goal saw off a gallant Wolverhampton Wanderers at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 2016.

The Croatian centre forward netted his first goal for the Hammers with an unerring first-time finish from Andy Carroll's pass.

The victory ensured Slaven Bilic's side would be able to sign-off life in Upton Park with an unforgettable fourth-round replay win over Liverpool the following month.
