West Ham missed out on the opportunity to move up to fifth in the Barclays Premier League after being held to a 1-1 draw by Stoke at Upton Park.

The Hammers fell behind to an early Jonathan Walters goal as Stoke went in search of their first away league win in 15 outings but ended up with a share of the spoils courtesy of a rare goal from Joey O'Brien.

West Ham's task was always going to be harder after conceding the lead as Stoke looked to sit back and soak up the pressure. Sam Allardyce's side struggled to create chances in the first half but were much more potent after the break and dominated proceedings following O'Brien's strike, only his second goal for the club.
