Nathan Trott returned from injury but he could not prevent West Ham Unitedís Under 18ís from suffering late heartbreak as a last minute Kazaiah Sterling penalty saw them lose 2-1 at Tottenham Hotspur.
West Ham went behind in the opening 20 minutes when Jack Roles pounced on a clearance by Trott, only for Jahmal Hector-Ingram to draw the sides level with a neat finish 20 minutes later.
However, Spurs stole the three points in injury time when Sterling slotted home from the spot after Rosaire Longeloís foul.
Manager Steve Potts made a few changes from the side that drew with Arsenal before the international break. Trott, Hector-Ingram, Declan Rice and Dan Kemp came in for Rihards Matrevics, the suspended Ben Johnson, Joe Powell and Ben Wells.
