    FT: Preston 0-1 West Brom

    Moments like that fuel dreams that it's your year.

    That decision could be a big moment for West Brom.

    Five wins on the spin now and the first team in the Championship to win at Deepdale this season.

  3. Baggies go back top

    Preston 0-1 West Brom

    West Brom leapfrog Leeds with that late goal.

    Preston miss the chance to go fourth but remain firmly in the play-off battle.

  4. Post update

    FT: Preston 0-1 West Brom

    Charlie Austin told Sky Sports:

    "I think it's a penalty, Kyle anticipated a touch, felt contact and went down but that's the luck you need in this division.

    "I'm an experienced cool head and I know what I'm doing, I had a look at the keeper and sent him the wrong way.

    "We've got great youngsters, we're top of the league and it's an exciting future for us."

    FT: Preston 0-1 West Brom

    Preston's proud unbeaten record at Deepdale comes to an end.

    But they're furious at that penalty decision - so late in the game as well - with some justification.

    Preston goalkeeper Declan Rudd charges angrily down the tunnel.

    Charlie Austin.

    It's all over and West Brom return to the top of the Championship.

  7. Post update

    Preston 0-1 West Brom

    We're deep into three minutes of stoppage time.

  8. Post update

    Preston 0-1 West Brom

    This could be a huge break for West Brom.

    It looked like Declan Rudd withdrew his hands as his slid in and may not have made any contact with the Baggies' Kyle Edwards.

  9. GOAL: Preston 0-1 West Brom

    Charlie Austin (pen)

    Coolly slotted away with the right boot into the left-hand side of the net.

    Declan Rudd sent the wrong way.

    Have the Baggies stolen the game?


    Ball played through for Kyle Edwards to chase for West Brom.

    Out comes Declan Rudd for Preston, Edwards goes down and a penalty is given!

    That looked a debatable decision.

    Kyle Edwards.

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Alex Neil is going to freshen things up to help his side secure a point.

    Brad Potts goes off to generous applause and Josh Harrop - short sleeve shirt and gloves, groan - jogs on.

  12. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Forward come the Baggies with the ball on the right hand side of the penalty area.

    Matheus Pereira is forced wide and his cross is well blocked.

    Pereira then with the corner from the right and it's a terrible delivery onto the roof of the net.


    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Final change of the night for West Brom.

    Hal Robson-Kanu is withdrawn and Filip Krovinovic comes on for the final six minutes.

  14. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Tom Barkhuizen is freed up the right for Preston.

    But his cross is immediately blocked.

    That results in a corner - but no-one can get a clean head to it.

  15. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Matheus Pereira probing away for West Brom 30 yards from goal.

    He jinks into space but it's quickly shut down.

    Anther shimmy and a clipped ball towards the far post but it runs out of play.

  16. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    West Brom have regained control of the game.

    They are looking threatening down the left and now have Charlie Austin to utilise up front.

    But Daniel Johnson wins a free-kick for the hosts in the centre circle.

    Charlie Austin.
  17. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Only one of West Brom's past 82 league games has finished goalless.

    Time running out to prevent that being two.


    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Second change for West Brom.

    Charlie Austin replacing Grady Diangana.

    Two men up top now for the Baggies.

  19. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Kyle Edwards.

    Kyle Edwards has been busy since coming on for West Brom.

    He charges up the left, pulls a ball back that's clipped to the far post.

    Safely headed away for Preston though.

    Baggies pressing again.

  20. Post update

    Preston 0-0 West Brom

    Some concern for Preston's Ben Pearson as he lies prone after falling awkwardly.

    He's gingerly back to his feet.

    Another injury is the last thing Alex Neil needs.
