Late derby winner from Der Hammer

Late derby winner from Der Hammer

On this day in 2002, Thomas Hitzlsperger scored a late, late winner in a 2-1 derby victory over West Brom.

Darius Vassell opened the scoring in the B6 encounter only for Jason Koumas to equalise for the Baggies.

German international Hitzlsperger blasted past Russell Hoult in the closing moments to earn bragging rights for the Villans in front of 40,391 fans.
