FULL-TIME: NOTTINGHAM FOREST 1-0 WEST HAM
What a moment for the Tricky Trees and Steve Cooper! They get their first Premier League win since 1999, and the heroics of goalkeeper Dean Henderson certainly played a huge part in earning a massive three points

A MATCH WINNING SAVE?

WEST HAM PUSHING FORWARD
There's a chance for Scamacca to shoot in the box, surely, but he tries to chest the ball down to a none-existent team mate instead

OUCH! SEVEN MINUTES ADDED ON
We're into additional time. Surely there can't be as much drama as the first half?

SOUCEK HITS WIDE
Soucek is picked out by a corner from the left, but he's well marked by Toffolo and can't divert the shot towards goal
88'
FOREST PUSHING
You'd think Forest would be sitting back by now, but far from it. Toffolo gets forward and sees his cross / shot diverted to safety
