West Ham United are leading Swansea City 2-0 at half time in today's Premier League match at Upton Park, thanks to a brace by Kevin Nolan.

West Ham United are leading Swansea City 2-0 at half time in today's Premier League match at Upton Park.

After a quiet start, the game sprung into action just before the half-hour mark. Andy Carroll was able to nod the ball down for Kevin Nolan on the edge of the Swansea area, before the veteran player sent a left-footed shot into the bottom corner of Gerhard Tremmel's net.

The Hammers had another good chance in the 32nd minute, Matt Jarvis sending a dangerous cross in the direction of the Swansea box, but nobody could get on the end of it.

The East London outfit were eventually able to double their lead on the stroke of half time, as Nolan, again assisted by Carroll, lashed an effort into the bottom corner from six yards.
