West Ham needed a late Ricardo Vaz Te goal to salvage a point in a 1-1 draw with Watford as they blew their chance to go top of the npower Championship.

The Hammers, needing a win to leapfrog Southampton at the summit, created a host of chances only to fall behind to a second-half sucker-punch from Watford teenager Sean Murray.

Substitute Vaz Te struck with three minutes of normal time to play and West Ham laid siege on the Watford goal throughout nine minutes of stoppage time following a nasty injury to Dale Bennett.
