  1. FULL-TIME

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    That's proceedings done for the day at The Hawthorns. A job well done for Tony Pulis' men.

  2. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Steve Cook has one final go at salvaging something for Bournemouth, but the ball flies straight into Ben Foster's chest.

  3. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    A short corner comes to nothing for West Brom, and Bournemouth eventually get control of the ball again.

  4. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Ooft! That's one way to make an impact - Salomon Rondon's fine solo run down the left ends in a long range shot that Asmir Begovic does incredibly well to parry away. Corner...

  5. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    We've got five minutes of added time ahead of us.

  6. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    An impressive match for Jay Rodriguez has come to an end. It'll be Salomon Rondon to close out this game.

  7. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Joshua King comes charging into the area with a superb run, beating AHmed Hegazi, but there's no-one there to support him, and he ends up lashing the ball tamely out of play.

  8. CLOSE!

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    West Brom break and Hal Robson-Kanu, snugly in the box, chests down Jake Livermore's pass, turns, and spins the ball high over the bar.

  9. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    In comes the free-kick from Ryan Fraser, it's Nathan Ake who rises the highest - and he heads it straight into Ben Foster's arms! He yells in anguish as Foster cradles the ball to his chest.

    Ben Foster
  10. YELLOW CARD

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    A tackle from Jay Rodriguez leaves Ryan Fraser tumbling across the floor - and he's summarily shown a yellow. A free-kick for Bournemouth, from wide on the left.

  11. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Simon Francis is receiving a bit of treatment after a clash, and he's limping off to be replaced by Adam Smith.

  12. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    In the corner comes from Chris Brunt, the ball hanging at the near post - and everyone ignores it. There's then a penalty shout against Steve Cook as he goes leaping above Ahmed Hegazi, but the referee says no dice.

  13. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    A shake of the head from Nathan Ake as he's forced to come racing across in front of James McClean and slide the ball out of play after a mistake from Simon Francis. That'll be another West Brom corner.

  14. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Good work from Ryan Fraser, sliding to knock the ball out from underneath Nyom's feet as West Brom break, and that's a Baggies throw. The ball lands to Jake Livermore and he curls in a cross, looking for Hal Robson-Kanu, and instead finding the advertising hoarding.

  15. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Steve Cook lines up the free-kick, and a couple of West Brom heads nod it away from danger. As you were.

  16. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    And another change for West Brom - Hal Robson-Kanu will replace Matt Phillips as Bournemouth line up a free-kick.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    A substitution for West Brom. Teenager Rekeem Harper is on, in place of Sam Field.

  18. 'What an example, what a reception, what a player'

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    Dion Dublin

    Former Leicester & Man Utd forward on Final Score

    Jermain Defoe

    What an example, what a reception, what a player and what a goalscorer.

    What more is there to stay about Jermain Defoe? He'll score 15 to 20 goals, for a lesser team, yet again this season.

  19. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    That free-kick comes to nothing, the ball eventually dropping to Jordon Ibe deep on the right, and he whacks his cross high over the bar. Oops.

  20. Post update

    West Brom 1-0 Bournemouth

    As before, Bournemouth are having the majority of possession, but they're not doing an awful lot with it. Steve Cook comes off the worse in a tangle with Jay Rodriguez, the Cherries man rubbing furiously at his nose as Rodriguez whacks him. Free-kick.
