On This Day: Carlton Cole finishes wonderful move against Wigan Athletic
Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, in association with RoadX Tyres...
West Ham United ran out 1-0 Premier League winners against Wigan Athletic courtesy of a superb first-half strike from Carlton Cole on this day in 2009.
Cole rounded off a sublime passing move in the 34th minute to put the Hammers ahead before being shown a red card for a high foot just three minutes later.
In what was a fiery contest at the DW Stadium, the Latics captain Lee Cattermole also saw red for a poor lunge on Scott Parker in the second period.
Gianfranco Zola's side held on well to secure the three points on their travels, however, the night ended on a sour note with Jack Collison sustaining a serious knee injury.
