Hammers see off Stoke challenge

Published Add your comment

West Ham's substitutes came to Avram Grant's rescue as they helped seal a place in the Carling Cup quarter-finals with a 3-1 extra-time victory over Stoke.

The Potters looked set to pile the pressure on Hammers boss Grant after the home side missed several chances to cancel out Kenwyne Jones' early opener at Upton Park.

But captain Scott Parker finally equalised with six minutes of normal time remaining before Manuel Da Costa and substitute Victor Obinna completed the turnaround.
