On This Day: Hammers edge five-goal Coventry thriller

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

There were goals aplenty at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 1996, as West Ham United edged a five-goal Premier League thriller with Coventry City.

The Hammers looked to be in complete control when goals from Marc Rieper and Tony Cottee in the first 14 minutes of the second half put them 2-0 up, only for Coventry to draw level through Dion Dublin and Noel Whelan.

West Ham weren't finished though, and an 85th-minute Iain Dowie strike ensured the majority of the 18,884 in attendance went home happy.
