Scott Parker (pictured) scored in the 84th minute to equalize for West Ham United before Manuel da Costa and Victor Obinna scored in extra-time to lead the Hammers past Stoke City, 3-1 at the Boleyn Ground. Kenwyne Jone’s header after just six minutes gave the visitors an early lead but the Potters were unable to hold their lead, allowing the leveler just six minutes from time. West Ham have had a dreadful start to this season in league play and are bottom of the twenty-team Premier League table. Yet the win against Stoke sends them to the quarterfinals of the League Cup.
