Yesterday was a day to forget for West Ham fans as the Hammers went down 2-0 away at Bournemouth.

But there was one slight consolation: loan man Jordan Hugill cost bitter rivals Millwall in the dying moments of his game.

Hugill is on loan at Middlesbrough and he earned his side a point with an injury time equaliser against Millwall.

Boro were awarded a late penalty with the visitors 1-0 up. Hugill kept his nerve and impressed some West Ham fans by denying Millwall a victory.

Hugill joined West Ham on deadline day in January 2018 but only managed three substitute appearances under David Moyes.

Last summer, the ex-Preston striker was sent back to the Championship, as he joined Middlesbrough on a season-long loan.

The 26-year-old has scored seven goals in 25 games since joining ex-Hammers Stewart Downing, Darren Randolph and Ashley Fletcher at Middlesbrough.

But his goal yesterday would have endeared himself to the West Ham fans after helping to prevent Millwall from winning.

Here are a handful of tweets from West Ham fans praising Hugill for his goal against Millwall.
