Hammers set up final-day decider

Published Add your comment

West Ham took their npower Championship automatic promotion challenge to the final day of the season as they came from behind to beat Leicester 2-1 at the King Power Stadium.

Anything but victory would have handed Southampton their return to the Barclays Premier League behind champions Reading and left the Hammers in the play-offs.

It looked like that may not be the case when Jermaine Beckford headed Leicester in front against the run of play. But West Ham responded quickly through Winston Reid before Jack Collison smashed home the winning goal in the second half.
