110th Meeting Between Reds & The Hammers

By Forest
Last updated : 03 January 2014

The two sides have met on 109 occasions in all competitions with the most recent FA Cup meetings, in 2003 and 2011, both going the way of the home side at Upton Park by a 3-2 scoreline.

Prior to that and well remembered by supporters from both sides is the semi-final meeting at Villa Park in 1991 which hinged on the early sending off of Hammers defender Tony Gale and which Forest went on to win 4-0.

A tick to anyone who can name the Reds' starting XI that day? Answer at the bottom of the page.

Head-To-Head

Sunday's televised fixture comes as the famous old competition comes in for some stick, Aston Villa manager Paul Lambert suggesting some Premier League teams 'could do without it' and West Ham themselves likely to field a much-changed side as they battle against the drop.

Forest XI from the 1991 semi-final: Crossley, Charles, Walker, Chettle, Pearce, Crosby, Parker, Keane, Woan, Clough, Glover.
