LITESPORT London Lite Wednesday, 26 August 2009 35 WORST IVE SEENHammers triumph on the night football was a loser MEANWHILE there was a football match going on. The heat around the stadium showed early signs of spreading to the players with Andy Frampton getting the first yellow card within six minutes for a foul on Carlton Cole. At the other end Danny Gabbidon received a booking for tripping Chris Hackett in full flow. Millwall opened the scoring in the 26th minute. Scott Barron launched a long throw into the area which Gabbidon made a mess of and Neil Harris poked the ball past Robert Green. Julien Faubert was furious with the ARSENALS ED BOY: PAGE 33 longer than the initial month. The 20-year- old Bristol City defender has impressed this season already.

He told BBC Radio Five Live: Its important to get to the bottom of it but too many hysterical over-reactions dont help. There needs to be a very clear response to try to make sure this doesnt happen again. assistant referee for not flagging for a penalty after David Martin hauled him down on the edge of the area in what was West Hams closest effort in the first half. Millwall remained defiant through the second half until the 87th minute when Junior Stanislas equalised with a close-range effort. Seven minutes into extra time Stanislas was the hero again, this time from the penalty spot, after Frampton handled Zavon Hiness cross. Hines then sealed the win with a brilliant piece of individual skill, passing two Millwall players before striking a crisp drive past David Forde. Paying the penalty: Stanislas makes it 2-1 boss Zola looks on helplessly, right THIS is definitely one of the most bitter rivalries in England, even though the two have rarely been in the same division at the same time. Both clubs actually originated in Londons docklands, with West Ham previously known as Thames Ironworks. Millwall then moved from the Isle of Dogs to New Cross on the south side of the Thames in 1910. In the 20s there was a rivalry between two shipyards, on either side of the river. The Millwall, London and Surrey docks were a Millwall stronghold while the Royal docks was West Ham. In 1926 tensions increased further when West Ham dockers went on strike and Millwalls carried on working. 100 YEARS OF RIVALRY WEST HAM......... 3 MILLWALL...........1 AFTER EXTRA TIME I knew this match meant a lot to the fans, but I didnt imagine it was this way.
