Stanislas rescues point

Published Add your comment

Junior Stanislas came off the bench to save West Ham's blushes with a goal two minutes into injury time to secure a 2-2 draw against 10-man Fulham.

The Hammers had been cruising at the interval after Carlton Cole's header earned them a deserved lead and Fulham had South African midfielder Kagisho Digikao sent off on his full debut. But Fulham hit back immediately after the interval with a penalty from Danny Murphy before Zoltan Gera's 57th-minute volley put them ahead.

West Ham had lost all composure and appeared set for their fourth consecutive defeat before Stanislas worked space in the Fulham box and his shot deflected in off Aaron Hughes.
