On This Day: Last-gasp header takes Hammers past Cardiff

Taking a look back at a classic West Ham United moment on this day in history, presented by Heineken....

A last-gasp header from Carl Fletcher handed West Ham United a 1-0 EFL Championship victory over Cardiff City on this day in 2005.

The Welsh international midfielder got one over his countrymen, timing his run to perfection to meet Chris Powell's cross with a deftly-directed header.

Alan Pardew's men would go on to win promotion at the end of the season, defeating Preston North End in the Play-Off final.
