West Ham's troubles are still not over as the Hammers were on the end of a 1-0 defeat at the hands of Crystal Palace at Upton Park on Saturday.

The Hammers failed to break down Pulis' miserly side who have conceded fewer goals in his 23 games in charge than they did in the previous 12.

Charlton and Bolton played out a goalless draw in a Good Friday clash at The Valley.

Bolton manager Dougie Freedman has formed a smart side who have risen to mid-table safety thanks largely to a six game unbeaten run on their travels.

Winger Matt Jarvis said he should have been cleverer in an attempt to reward West Ham with a penalty, after the Hammers lost 3-1 at the hands of Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Nippy winger, Jarvis appeared to be clipped by right back Bacary Sagna earlier in the first half. However, the £11m signing from Wolves stayed on his feet and the game carried on.

One piece of good news Charlton can salvage out of defeat at home to Barnsley is the long-awaited return of last year's player of the year Chris Solly.

The full-back played well for 70 minutes of Tuesday's match before being taken off as a precaution. And afterwards manager Jose Riga said he's a huge part of the side.

West Ham were outclassed by a slick Arsenal side as the Gunners were 3-1 victors over the Hammers at The Emirates Stadium on Tuesday night.

Manager, Sam Allardyce was pleased with the performance of his side; however, the former Bolton gaffer said it counts for nothing when you lose.

Millwall still have a chance of staying in the Championship this season after a pulsating 2-2 home draw versus Watford last Saturday.

Thousands ran in the London Marathon yesterday, raising millions for charities around the world.

Participants set-off from Greenwich just after 10am, running past Woolwich Common, Cutty Sark and Deptford Park along the route.

Runners passed through the iconic high-rise towers at Canary Wharf at the 18th mile and then they returned west towards The Mall for the finish.

Nation's favourite Mo Farah completed his marathon debut in 2hr 8min 21sec, just four minutes behind Kenya's Wilson Kipsang, who won with a course-record time of 2hr 4min 29sec.

A two goal salvo in the opening minutes of the second half gave Charlton a hugely important win over relegation rivals Yeovil at The Valley.
