Robins boost survival hopes
A Robert Green blunder all but confined West Ham to the npower Championship play-offs and helped edge Bristol City closer to safety following a 1-1 draw.
The Hammers goalkeeper failed to deal with a routine Cole Skuse attempt from range after 29 minutes of a scratchy encounter at Ashton Gate, allowing the ball to bounce up and over his diving body.
It means his side have plenty to do if they are to secure automatic promotion to the Barclays Premier League.
With Southampton winning at Peterborough, Sam Allardyce's outfit are five points off the top two with just two games remaining.
It could have been so different for the Hammers, who led thanks to James Tomkins' header midway through the opening period and saw second-half chances spurned by Henri Lansbury and John Carew.
But for City, a battling point improves their chances of playing in the Championship next season.
