West Ham draws 1-1 with West Brom in Premier League

LONDON (AP) Rickie Lambert came off the bench to rescue a point for West Bromwich Albion in a 1-1 draw against West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday.

The striker had been on the pitch just five minutes as a halftime substitute when his shot deflected in off Hammers defender Winston Reid and into net. The fortuitous strike cancelled out a superb free kick from Mauro Zarate that had given West Ham an early lead.

West Ham is now without a win in four games after a host of missed opportunities to stretch their advantage before Lambert pegged them back.

Victor Moses had a chance to win it for the hosts two minutes from the end but the Chelsea loanee volleyed a shot across goal and wide.
