Winston Reid was West Ham's unlikely hero as the npower Championship leaders beat derby rivals Millwall 2-1 despite playing almost the entire match with 10 men.

The New Zealand defender hit only his second goal for the Hammers moments after Liam Trotter had cancelled out Carlton Cole's first-half header.

The drama came after Hammers skipper Kevin Nolan was shown a straight red card for a nasty two-footed lunge on Jack Smith with just nine minutes on the clock.
