    Bournemouth 2-1 West Brom

    I think they probably can, Mitch. Bournemouth tick on to 36 points, and one more win should be enough for them. West Brom are so far adrift of safety, they might as well get out the atlas for Ipswich now.

    Thanks for your company this afternoon - I'm off to knock together the match report.

    "You're nothing special, we lose every week," sing the Baggies fans with typical gallows humour. A West Brom fan I spoke to in midweek had already resigned himself to the Championship - it looks even bleaker for them now.

    Meanwhile, even the most pessimistic Bournemouth supporter may allow themselves to dream of a fourth season in the top flight now?

    Bournemouth 2-1 West Brom

    And it was the last chance. West Brom slide closer to their inevitable fate. Bournemouth nudge towards safety. And Albion, as it turned out, could not continue their success rate against teams beginning with the letter B.

    Bournemouth 2-1 West Brom

    One last chance of West Brom - an almighty scramble. Matt Phillips heads Kieran Gibbs' cross goalwards, and Charlie Daniels boots off the line!

    Junior Stanislas was recommended as an inclusion earlier this week for Fantasy Premier League managers by the official Premier League website, after taking 22 shots in the last six gameweeks, more than any other midfielder. Clearly they know more than we do!

    Just before that goal, Jordon Ibe was announced over the PA as the sponsors' man of the match, to general incredulity from the home fans seated near the press box. Arguably Stanislas deserves to take that title from him, purely for the quality of that free-kick from an acute angle. Another ex-West Ham man - Dimitri Payet - would have been pleased with that one.

    Concern here. Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake is flat out following a nasty clash of heads with Hal Robson-Kanu. Thankfully, both players are sitting up quickly after treatment.

    Five minutes to add on.

    And what a free-kick! Stanislas, who has had a couple of goes from roughly the same range without success, gets it spot on this time, floating the ball over the wall and just inside the post. Surely that's the winner. Surely that's a seventh straight defeat for West Brom.

    Bournemouth attack, as Joshua King runs at the West Brom defence, urged on by the crowd. Craig Dawson sends him sprawling about five yards outside the area, and picks up a yellow card. Charlie Daniels and Junior Stanislas deliberate over the free-kick...

    Bournemouth 1-1 West Brom

    One more change for West Brom. Goalscorer Jay Rodriguez departs to be replaced by Hal Robson-Kanu - who got the winner the last time Albion managed an away league victory, at Burnley in August.

    Claudio Yacob is the third Albion player to wear the armband this afternoon - while Bournemouth also have their third-choice captain on duty in Steve Cook, with Simon Francis injured in the first half and vice-captain Andrew Surman an unused substitute today.

    West Brom make another change. Chris Brunt, who only took on the captaincy about five minutes ago, is replaced by Sam Field.

    It's only Jordon Ibe's second goal in Bournemouth colours since his £15m move in the summer of 2016 - and not unexpectedly, it has galvanised the home fans here, as a tense atmosphere is transformed into one which firmly believes the Cherries can go on and win this.

  16. GOAL - Bournemouth 1-1 West Brom

    Jordon Ibe

    Bournemouth's Jordan Ibe

    I think it's fair to say that West Brom lose their concentration amid the defensive reshuffle that follows the substitution. Craig Dawson has moved into the middle, with Matt Phillips going into the right-wing-back slot. Jordon Ibe takes advantage, cutting in from the left and bouncing a shot past Ben Foster from the edge of the box.

    As if it were possible, West Brom's midfield appears to be playing even deeper than it was in the first half.

    A change for the visitors. Captain Jonny Evans, perhaps felling the effects of the illness that kept him out against Leicester last weekend, is replaced by Matt Phillips. Chris Brunt takes over the captaincy.

    Junior Stanislas takes the free-kick, and gets it over the wall - but clears the bar, with the ball brushing the top of the net.

  19. Post update

    Bournemouth 0-1 West Brom

    All a bit of a mess on the edeg of the West Brom penalty area. Jake Livermore and Claudio Yacob get in each other's way trying to clear. Yacob, in attempting to tidy up, hacks down Joshua King just outside the area. Bournemouth free-kick, left of centre.

    Jermain Defoe, still getting back to full match fitness after two months out with a broken ankle, is on for Callum Wilson.

    Into the final 20 minutes. Lots of huffing and puffing from Bournemouth, to little effect. Eddie Howe has told Jermain Defoe to get ready to come on.
