Hammers settle for point

Published Add your comment

West Ham had to settle for a point from a 2-2 draw with Newcastle after two goals in the last two minutes of the first half had wiped out what appeared to be a commanding lead.

It had looked comfortable for the Hammers after Mark Noble and Dean Ashton found the net, although Freddie Ljungberg was also carried off on a stretcher in the first half.

But Obafemi Martins and then Geremi each found the net before the break and neither side was able to add to their goal tally in the second period.
