West Ham   3 - 1   Millwall

Crowd trouble marred West Ham's extra-time victory over London rivals Millwall in the Carling Cup.

Neil Harris volleyed Millwall ahead but West Ham equalised with three minutes to play as Junior Stanislas' finish prompted mass pitch invasions.

Stanislas scored a penalty in extra time after a Millwall handball before Zavon Hines fired home the third.

The game was played out amid trouble between fans inside and outside of Upton Park, overshadowing the match.

There were more clashes between fans and police towards the latter stages of the tie as supporters tried to invade the pitch.

And when Stanislas equalised to send the tie into extra-time, the crowd finally spilled over the advertising hoardings and on to the playing surface.

West Ham midfielder Jack Collison, who declared himself ready to play despite his father dying in a motorcycle accident on Sunday, was one of several players who pleaded with fans to get back to the stands.

But, when a second major invasion followed Stanislas' second goal, the Millwall players left the pitch while stewards and police attempted to clear the fans.

The game was allowed to continue but Hines' classy finish will be forgotten amid the chaos.

One man was stabbed in the chest near the stadium in fighting which occurred during the match.

And the trouble continued beyond the final whistle, with a number of arrests made for disorder and breaches of banning orders.
