On This Day: McAvennie and Morley combine to tame Lions

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

Frank McAvennie scored twice as West Ham United defeated Millwall 3-1 in a Second Division derby at the Boleyn Ground on this day in 1991.

Stuart Slater had already been denied before the Scotland striker headed the Hammers into the lead with a powerful and perfectly-placed effort from Ian Bishop's right-wing cross.

George Parris then sent a rasping shot narrowly over the crossbar as Billy Bonds' Hammers kept the pressure on the Lions in this Sunday lunchtime kick-off.

However, Millwall stunned their hosts before half-time when Tim Breacker's loose clearance fell to Jon Goodman, who fired past Luděk Mikloško with his left foot to equalise.

After the break, West Ham went back in front when the electric Stuart Slater collected Bishop's fine pass down the left, beat his man and was initially denied, but McAvennie followed up to score from an acute angle.

Millwall's leading scorer Teddy Sheringham then lost the ball inside his own half an an incisive move saw Parris and McAvennie combine for Trevor Morley to complete a deserved win with a fine diving header.
