Wigan squandered a host of chances and a 1-0 lead as they crashed to a 2-1 defeat to West Ham at the JJB Stadium. Jason Roberts gave the Latics the lead with his 19th goal of the season, but Teddy Sheringham equalised for the Hammers before Marlon Harewood gave manager Alan Pardew a much-needed win.
Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle has played down rumours linking him with the managerial position at West Ham. Hammers chief Alan Pardew has found himself under intense pressure for some time, despite the club being on the fringe of the play-off places, and Hoddle is the latest manager to be connected with replacing the former Reading boss at Upton Park. Hoddle is aware of the reports and feels it is unfair for individuals to be linked with the job while Pardew is still at the helm.
Tomas Repka has agreed to terminate his West Ham contract at the end of the season, a year earlier than it was due, and could return to Czech Republic. The powerful stopper's current deal with The Hammers was due to expire in 2006, but he seems to have grown tired of playing in The Championship. Repka is frustrated that he has not been able to get into The Premiership, and says he could return to his homeland in the summer.
