    Time:90'
    • West Ham United
    • Nottingham Forest
    • FT And there is the full-time whistle - West Ham have got the victory but they made things hard for themselves.
    • 90+3 Late chance for McGoldrick but he scuffs the ball as it came to him inside the box.
    • 90+2 Forest can't get out of their own half....
    • 90' We will have four extra minutes.
    • 89' Hines comes on for Barrera - Nouble is also now on for Piquionne
    • 89' Lynch gets a shot all wrong after McCleary's effort deflected into his path.
    • 88' The balls runs out of play for Tyson as the clock keeps ticking.
    • 86' Chris Gunter gets a shot on target but Green is able to save.
    • 84' McGoldrick rises highest from the resulting corner but he puts it wide...great chance for Forest.
    • 82' Good diving header from Reid cuts out a Tyson cross into the box.
    • 80' Scott Parker is warming up - West Ham might bring him on to try and kill the game.
    • 78' Well Forest were so good in the first-half but there have been very few signs of them finding a way back into things since going behind.
    • 76' Forest take off McKenna and on comes McCleary.
    • 74' Noble for Boa Morte for West Ham
    • 72' Forest starting to get back into this a bit but they need to start creating chances.
    • 70' Another super save from Camp to bat away a superb drive from Sears. Camp is keeping Forest in this.
    • 68' Majewski off and Tyson on for Forest as they look to get things going again.
    • 67' Piquionne tries to put clear Obinna and the Nigerian tries to put it through the Forest keeper's legs but Camp saves once again.
    • 66' Adebola off and Robert Earnshaw on for Forest.
    • 65' Sears with a first time effort but he just can't keep his shot down. Whatever Avram Grant said at half-time has worked.
    • 64' Chris Gunter is given a yellow-card for a deliberate handball.
    • 62' Camp has to make another good save – this time to bat away an effort from Pablo Barrera
    • 61' Piquionne with a sweet half-volley on target but Camp makes a great save to push it away.
    • 59' West Ham break with pace but just can't find the killer pass. Better from the Hammers in this past though.
    • 57' Noble fizzes a shot/cross and it bounces through everyone and nearly creeps into the net.
    • 55' Fans in better mood now - they're forever blowing Bubbles once again.
    • 53' McGugan rushes a shot at the other end and that goes over the bar.
    • 52' Obinna will take the penalty for his hat-trick – AND HE SENDS THE KEEPER THE WRONG WAY – a spectacular celebration to boot too.
    • 51' PENALTY FOR WEST HAM!! Forest played the offside trap badly and as the ball was played into the box Reid was pulled down by Joe Lynch. He gets a yellow card and it could have even been red.
    • 50' Rather drab start to this second-half.
    • 48' These clubs have met 112 times competitively, and each has won 43, with 26 drawn.
    • 47' Decent hit from distance by McGoldrick but that sails over the bar.
    • 46' No changes by either side at half-time. We are back underway.
    • HT And there is the half-time whistle - all square but Forest playing the better.
    • 45+1 Another poor pass from Kovac - he's not exactly shining here.
    • 45' We will have two extra minutes.
    • 45' Obinna tries to score another stunner but not this time for Victor.
    • 44' Shouts for hand-ball from the home fans as the ball hops up on McGoldrick - nothing going there.
    • 43' Noble's strike is saved by Camp after a one-two with Ilunga. Cleared away for a corner.
    • 42' WEST HAM BACK LEVEL!!! It is Obinna again with a stunning strike from way out in the right wing. Camp is caught unaware and it loops over him. Shades of David Beckham against Wimbledon all those years ago. Did he mean it? Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.
    • 40' FOREST IN FRONT!!! Cohen with a free-kick into the box, an ill-advised header from Kovac is saved by Green but McGoldrick reacts quickest to turn it in.
    • 40' Ilunga with a heavy tackle and he is lucky not to be booked there.
    • 38' Forest have to do a little defending but West Ham still lacking a cutting edge.
    • 37' We should not be surprised by this Forest performance - they have won their last three. Nottingham Forest fixtures/results
    • 36' Sears and Barrera have switched wings but neither player has made an impact thus far.
    • 35' Whistles from the crowd after a shocking pass from Kovac - no idea who was even the target there.
    • 33' Forest have had 52% of the possession so far although it seems like even more.
    • 31' Cohen whips in a ball but it goes straight into the arms of Green.
    • 30' Well West Ham getting into the game a little bit more now but they need to try and take control of the midfield. Scott Parker is being missed in there.
    • 29' The answer is no after a poor cross from Ilunga.
    • 28' West Ham have a corner can they get something going from here.
    • 26' West Ham with a chance to break with Obinna but then he overruns the ball when he should have fed to Piquionne
    • 25' Jacobsen has to head away a McGugan cross and it is wave after wave of Forest pressure. Half a shout for a penalty there too as the ball bounced around the area and might have hit Gabbidon's hand.
    • 23' Green comes for the corner and gets a big bag of air. The Hammers are very lucky to see the ball curl just wide.
    • 23' Majewski with another shot that is deflected out for a corner - this remains one-way traffic.
    • 21' Gabbidon with a woeful back pass but he gets away with it.
    • 20' Majewski takes the free-kick and it is deflected away for a corner. West Ham all at sea at the moment but Green did at least deal with the corner.
    • 19' Gabbidon booked for blocking down McGoldrick just on the edge of the box.
    • 18' FOREST HAVE THEIR DESERVED EQUALISER!! Adebola with a little toe-poke in from close range and that is no more than Forest deserve! His first of the season.
    • 16' McGugan and Majewski both buzzing around on the edge of the area but West Ham can't clear.
    • 15' This has been a good reaction to the goal from Forest - they actually look the better team at the moment.
    • 14' Majewski goes down in the area looking for a penalty but referee Michael Oliver is right there and has words with the Forest midfielder, who gets lucky not to be booked
    • 12' McGugan drills a free-kick over Robert Green's cross bar after Noble brings down Majewski about 25 yards out and just to the left of the goal
    • 10' McGoldrick is penalised for handball as Forest press forward once again and Green clears their line with the resulting free-kick
    • 8' McGugan is causing problems for West Ham but he is yet to find a shot on target as his latest effort, from about 20 yards out, drifts wide of the left post
    • 5' Ooof! Lewis McGugan very nearly gets Forest back on level terms as he receives the ball on the right of the penalty area on to volley wide of the far post.
    • 4' GOAL WEST HAM! Victor Obinna gets the hosts off the mark with a tap in across the front of goal after Mark Noble has a shot blocked from 20 yards out. Obinna didn't really celebrate to start with as he wasn't sure whether he was offside or not but there is no flag. Chris Gunter was playing him on
    • 3' Piquionne cushions a header back into the box from the far post down to Sears, who has his goal-bound shot deflected by Wes Morgan. It'll been a Hammers corner
    • 2' Sears, on the edge of the 18 yard box cuts inside before going back outside and trying his luck from range. But he shot is well, well wide and Forest get the goalkick to clear
    • 1' West Ham get the clash underway under the floodlights, bizarrely ...
    • - And opposite them FOREST look like this: Camp, Gunter, Morgan, Chambers, Lynch, McKenna, Majewski, Cohen, McGugan, Adebola, McGoldrick; Subs: Smith, Earnshaw, Tyson, McCleary, Moussi, Moloney, Rodney
    • - The teams are in and WEST HAM will line up as follows: Green, Jacobsen, Gabbidon, Reid, Ilunga, Barrera, Kovac, Noble, Obinna, Sears, Piquionne; Subs: Boffin, Tomkins, Parker, Boa Morte, Nouble, Hines, Bridge
    • - On the other hand Forest are riding high on confidence, having won their last five in league and cup combined
    • - Avram Grant's side have won just four times in the Premier League this season and are two points from the safety at the bottom of the table
    • - West Ham were just 30 minutes away from booking their place in the Carling Cup final in mid week before Birmingham bounced back to deny them at the death. Can they recover from that disappointment in time?
    • - They last clashed in the Championship in 2004/05, when both fixtures were won by the club playing at home
    • - This should be a fiesty affair as West Ham are only five places higher than Forest in the league standings, going into this weekend
    • - Hello and welcome to LIVE coverage from this FA Cup fourth round clash between West Ham and Nottingham Forest at Upton Park
