Controversial Wilson leveller settles thriller

Adjust Comment Print

However even the most hated referee ever to officiate a game involving West Ham agreed that Bobby Madley made a complete howler of yesterday's match against Bournemouth, which ended 3-3 after the 32-year-old Yorkshireman overruled his linesman in the most dubious and unique circumstances in order to award the CHerries an added-on time equaliser.

The 3-3 draw wasn't enough for Bournemouth to escape the relegation zone, though Howe was pleased that his side were able to refind their identity, as well as clinch a significant draw.

"We'll have to wait and see on Chris, He suffered a minor tweak to his knee on Saturday, which is not ideal, so we'll see how it settles down", Dyche told Burnley's website.

West Ham's kitman was left with pie on his face after Arnautovic's name was misspelt on the back of his shirt - reading "Arnoutovic".

The Austria forward then slotted home after Begovic could only redirect Javier Hernandez's effort, as West Ham looked set to steal the win.

Reid had been brutally honest before the Bournemouth game about West Ham's defensive frailties against Newcastle. I don't know if I can be happy for the one point as the referee took three points from us.

"It was bad, from our point of view, conceding three goals, giving goals away, and they could have had another two in the first half", he told West Ham's web site.

A late brace from Marko Arnautovic restored the Irons' lead, but a controversial goal from Callum Wilson, that appeared to include a handball and an offside, salvaged a point for Howe's men.

"It was hard to go one down after seven minutes, but we have shown character to get back in the game at 2-1".

Bournemouth moved ahead in the 56th minute when Lewis Cook's cross evaded everyone apart from Nathan Ake, who sidefooted the ball past Adrian.
