    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match from tomorrow (UK only).
    • 90+4' The final whistle goes, bringing to an end a frankly ridiculous match! There is no way a team with nine men should have been in with a shout of a point at the end, but all credit to West Brom. They could have shiiped a hatful, but that one-goal margin could prove vital in the final reckoning.
    • 90+4' It's over the head of Carson. Blackpool clear and Campbeel is stopped from shhoting from his own half by Mulumbu! The home side still come forward. Carson is back in his goal now and it's played square for CAMPBELL... fired wide!
    • 90+3' Craney has to head a cross behind with Dorrans lurking. Carson comes up for the corner...
    • 90+2' Blackpool pour men forward and Carney squares it for Grandn. He has time to take a touch, steady himself and shoot... Carson saves it!
    • 90+1' Four nail-biting minutes of added time to be played.
    • 90' West Brom free-kick on the halfway line. Launched into the box and it lands at the feet of Dorrans... he gets it caught under his feet but it comes back to REID... BLAZED OVER THE BAR FROM 10 YARDS!! What a chance!
    • 89' Brunt loses the ball and Blackpool break! Campbell holds the ball up in the area and lays it off to Adam... curls it wide of the far upright!
    • 87' West Brom have a free-kick on the left wing now. Brunt swings it in... Scharner glances his header just wide of the foot of the post!
    • 86' Campbell makes the space for himself and drags a shot on the turn wide of the target.
    • 85' GOAL!! Barnes is sent through and Gilks is off his line to block the shot. the ball is headed forward again to Mulumbu who beats the keeper with a cracking strike! Can West Brom rescue something from this game? Surely not...
    • 84' Keinan is booked, presumably for kicking the ball away.
    • 83' It's an awfully miss-hit corner, and West Brom clear. Reid is in the Blackpool box, but his control from the long ball sees him lose out.
    • 82' Phillips forces Shorey to concede a corner on the right.
    • 81' Carney's cross from the byline is a fiercely-struck one and Carson does well to take the sting out of it with two hands. Campbell was lurking at the far post.
    • 79' Adam pings in a diagonal ball to the far post, but no one in the box takes the gamble and it sails out for a goal kick.
    • 78' Every striped shirt is camped out in the final third now, inviting pressure from the home side, who win a corner.
    • 77' Scharner hauls down Campbell on the halfway line after the striker got the better of him.
    • 76' If Blackpool win this match, they are on 13 points. Promoted clubs West Brom (15) and Newcastle (14) have more points in the PL. The last time all three promoted teams had at least 13 points after 10 match rounds in the PL was in 2000/2001, when Manchester City had 14 points, Charlton Athletic 15 and Ipswich Town 15 points. (Infostrada)
    • 75' Vaughan fires a strike from 20 yards over the bar. West Brom have retreated very deep now, encouraging the pot shots.
    • 74' SHOTS: Blackpool 14 (six on target), West Brom nine (four on target).
    • 73' Carney sees Grandin's run and plays him in on the left... blazed over the bar from close range!
    • 72' Campbell is penalised for wrestling with Tamas as he tries to wint he ball. The striker still looks so determined to get on the scoresheet.
    • 71' Blackpool substitution: Dekal Keinan replaces varney.
    • 71' West Brom substitution: Giles Barnes replaces Thomas.
    • 70' Varney sends in the cross and Campbell loops a canny backwards header on goal that Carson has to tip over the bar!
    • 68' Campbell tries to pick out Taylor-Fletcher's run but overhits his pass. Goal kick to West Brom.
    • 66' Another West Brom set piece. Whipped into the box and headed over by Scharner! The Baggies are still creating chances.
    • 65' The free-kick is taken short and quick. Campbell rolls it back from the byline and three tangerine shirts all get in each other's way! Vaughan's shot rolls tamely to Carson.
    • 65' Reid gets a booking for a late tackle on Varney.
    • 64' Varney's third goal of the season has suely extinguished any hopes of a West Brom comeback.
    • 63' GOAL!! Blackpool have got what is surely a killer second! Vaughan wins the ball and Grandin fires in a low cross that Varney slides in to knock past Carson!
    • 62' Varney plays into the feet of Campbell, but it gets stuck underneath the striker's feet. The ball comes back to Adam on the edge of the box... fired high and wide! The Blackpool skipper has not been at his best since the restart.
    • 61' The free-kick is poor, and headed away by the first man, but the Baggies have another set piece from the edge of the centre circle. Floated into the area, but headed away again.
    • 60' Thomas has won a free-kick wide on the left. After a fould from Phillips.
    • 58' Blackpool's last home win in English top flight is more than 39 years ago, since they beat Crystal Palace 3-1 on April 26, 1971. (Infostrada)
    • 57' Blackpool substitutions: Dave Carney and Matty Phillips replace Cathcart and Eardley. Bold changes from Holloway.
    • 56' Vaughan hoists in a great ball fromt he left and it falls for Varney... the header is right at Carson, who catches gratefully.
    • 55' Thomas penalised for a foul on Varney on the halfway line. The referee has a word with Brunt, but refrains from booking him for dissent.
    • 54' West Brom can't make a chance from the corner, and we're back in their final third.
    • 53' Thomas pounces on to a loose ball and hares for goal! His strike is blocked by a sliding challenge from Cathcart at the expense of a corner!
    • 52' Scharner ries to play the ball out of defence, but there is no outlet for him to clear. Blackpool have the ball back soon enough.
    • 51' Varney weaves into the box from the left... great tackle by Tamas! He had to get that spot on, otherwise it would have been 11 v 8!
    • 50' Varney's cross is cleared by Brunt and Vaughan sees his volley from distance blocked.
    • 49' Blackpool are really going at West Brom right from the off here. Don't think the ball has been in their half yet since the restart.
    • 48' Adam's cross is blocked and Campbell does well to win a corner off Thomas.
    • 47' A Blackpool corner is played short, and Vaughan rolls it across for Adam to strike... it swerves well wide of the target.
    • 46' Instantly their are appeals for a penalty - mostly fromt he crowd, it must be said - as Mulumbu controls and clears a cross after it was defelcted and looped into the West Brom box. Refere Oliver waves away the calls.
    • 46' Blackpool kick off the second half!
    • 45+3' The half-time whistle goes, and West Brom are one goal and two men down! This could be some second half.
    • 45+2' Grandin has a pop on the volley from distance, but his effort is blocked by the first West Brom player between him and goal.
    • 45+1' We're in the first of two minutes to be added on at the end of this bizarre half.
    • 45' Dorrans meets a cross from the left but his header on goal is tame and right at Gilks.
    • 44' The added creativity in the West Brom midfield is beginning to shine through now. They've actually had 54% of the possession in the last five minutes.
    • 43' This is the second fastest time a club has two players sent off in one PL match. Bolton Wanderers' Paul Warhurst and Dean Holdsworth saw red in the 18th and 23rd minute against Leicester City in December 2001. (Infostrada)
    • 42' Mulumbu gets down the left and West Brom have got men forward here. Dorrans brings down the ball insdie the box and fires a strike across the face of goal!
    • 40' Still only two shots on target from Blackpool so far. If West Brom can get to half time like this then maybe, just maybe, they can think about getting salvaging from this game.
    • 39' Mulumbu brigns down Grandin. The crowd are chanting "Off! Off! Off!" every time a West Brom player commits a foul now!
    • 38' Great build-up play from West Brom as Dorrans makes his mark. Shorey's eventual cross is glanced away as Thomas leapt to head it.
    • 36' West Brom substitution: Graham Dorrans replaces Fortune. That's both strikers taken off now by Di Matteo. While it's still 1-0, he'll hold out hope of nicking a leveller from a set piece.
    • 35' It will be Elliot Grandin who strikes, but his effort goes into the stand.
    • 34' Blackpool have a free-kick on the dangerous area after a foul by Jerome Thomas. Several tangerine shirts around the ball...
    • 33' Arsenal (2-1 vs. Birmingham) and Bolton (2-1 vs. Stoke) are the only teams this PL season to win their match while receiving a red card. However both teams were already in the lead before they had to play with 10 man. (Infostrada)
    • 32' Scramble in the West Brom box several shots are blocked before the ball is hooked away by Brunt! It's going to be a long night for West Brom...
    • 31' Varney was going nowhere in the corner, and Jara left the ground as his lunged in two-footed and caught the Blackpool man's ankle. Referee Michael Oliver had no option but to sent him off there.
    • 30' Taylor-Fletcher whips in an inviting ball but it's glanced clear before Campbell can attack it. Craig Cathcart fires the ball over the bar.
    • 29' JARA SENT OFF! The Chilean defender dives in recklessly on Varney at the corner flag, and he has to go! West Brom down to nine men!
    • 28' It will be Brunt who strikes... over the bar.
    • 27' Fortune shows good strength and drive to surge forward through the centre, and Adam brings him down before the Frenchman can slip the ball to Mulumbu.The Blackpool skipper will happily take that booking. Brunt and Tamas are eyeing up a shot from the set piece...
    • 26' Grandin almost gets in as BLackpool break forward, but is deceived by the bounce of the ball.
    • 25' Bad decision by Gilks! Brunt's free-kick is flying wide of the far post but the keeper loses his bearings and palms it down to keep it in play! Scharner tries to imporvise with an overhead kick, but Blackpool survive!
    • 24' Nice control by Mulumbu as West Brom have a rare foray forward. They've won a free-kick deep on the right-hand side...
    • 23' As you'd expect, Blackpool are dominating the possession. Campbell fouls Scharner as he fights to win the ball back.
    • 21' Even if they do go on to lose here tonight, how Roberto di Matteo's men handle playing for so long with 10 men will tell us a lot about this West Brom side which has impressed so much in the early stages of this season.
    • 20' Adam is dispossessed inside the West Brom box, and the Baggies almost turn defence into attack with a slick one-touch move down the right, but the ball finds its way back to Gilks.
    • 18' Adam's delivery from deep is headed clear. Blackpool have got their tails up and the crowd behind them now.
    • 17' Paul Scharner concedes a free-kick. Youssouf Mulumbu is booked for dissent.
    • 16' Gabriel Tamas takes a knock and goes tumbling. Play resumes from a drop ball, which is booted back to the Blackpool defence, and the Romanian centre-back rejoinds play.
    • 15' West Brom have won none of their 10 Premier League games on a Monday. (Opta)
    • 14' West Brom substituion: Steven Reid replaces Cox. You have to feel for him. His first start of the season lasted less than a quarter of an hour!
    • 13' That's Adam's fourth of the season. All of his goals have come from teh penalty spot.
    • 12' GOAL!! Carson gets down to Adam's low strike to the right but it's too powerful for him to keep out! BLackpool lead and have well over an hour against 10 men now!
    • 11' PABLO SENT OFF! Referee Michael Oliver surprises everyone by flashing his first red card of the season! A bit harsh. Adam places the ball on the spot...
    • 10' PENALTY!! Adam finds Campbell with a great through ball and Pablo Ibanez blocks him off in the area!
    • 9' Simon Cox drills in an effort from the right, and Gilks is down quickly to palm it away.
    • 8' Charlie Adam is caught late by Jara wide on the left near the halfway line. Blackpool try to play forward from the short free-kick but the move breaks down.
    • 7' West Brom have a free-kick on the left here. Chris Brunt will swing in the delivery... decent curling ball in, headed away by Taylor-Fletcher.
    • 6' West Brom have scored three goals in each of the last three league games against Blackpool. Both of last season’s meetings in the Championship were won 3-2 with a penalty scored by Graeme Dorrans, who isn't in action tonight. (Opta)
    • 5' Scott Carson has to be quick off his line to claim a ball forward that DJ Campbell was chasing.
    • 4' Gary Taylor-Fletcher tries to ping a ball out wide for Varney, but Jara can tidy up.
    • 3' Luke Varney latches on to David Vaughan's prodded ball through and heads for goal... the flag is up for offside. Replays show Varney was level when the ball was played.
    • 2' Gonzalo Jara gets down the right and sends in a cross that Matt Gilks claims comfortably. The Blackpool keeper is one of many players on this field who have made a name for themselves this season.
    • 1' West Brom kick off and we're underway!
    • 19:58 The two sides are walking out on to the pitch now. We'll be underway in moments...
    • 19:55 It's a cold, rainy November night by the seaside. The rain is almost blowing sideways! Matches at Bloomfield Road have averaged four goals per game this season and these conditions, especially with these two sides, should make for an open and entertaining clash. Both managers see attack as the best form of defence.
    • 19:50 It's funny Blackpool have already claimed wins at two of the biggest grounds in the country - Anfield and St James' Park - this season, but are yet to taste victory at their gaff, which is the smallest. But, as Ian Holloway rightly said, his team have only played three games at Bloomfield Road so far, whereas many other sides have played five.
    • 19:45 Tonight's referee is Michael Oliver. The Northumberland official has dished out 13 yellow cards in just three Premier League matches so far this term, one of the highest rates in the division. Oliver was the man in the middle when West Brom famously beat Arsenal at the Emirates back in September.
    • 19:40 Blackpool captain Charlie Adam ws a major doubt ahead of this match, but he starts. The 24-year-old required stitches in his ankle after picking up an injury in a tackle with Nikola Zigic in last weekend's defeat to Birmingham. Billy Clarke, Alex Baptiste and Louis Almond are still all out.
    • 19:40 West Bromwich Albion head coach Roberto Di Matteo has a handful of key absentees. Striker Peter Odemwingie remains out with a knee injury, but Marc-Antoine Fortune has recovered from an ankle injury and starts up front. Defender Jonas Olsson (Achilles) is also sidelined, as is James Morrison after picking a knock in training.

Subs: Myhill, Cech, Tchoyi, Barnes, Bednar, Reid, Dorrans.
    • 19:30 HEAD-TO-HEAD: Blackpool and West Bromwich Albion have met 78 times in the league. Blackpool have won 29, West Bromwich 37 and there have been 12 draws. West Brom have won their last four league matches against Blackpool, beating them by a 3-2 scoreline home and away in the Championship last season. This is their first top flight meeting in 40 years – since a 1-1 draw at West Brom in old Division One in December 1970. (Infostrada)
    • 19:25 MATCH ODDS: Blackpool 2/1, Draw 9/4, West Brom 6/4
    • 19:20 The Baggies have made an excellent start to the season, and they will end this round of fixtures in fourth place if they can win here tonight. The Tangerines are still looking for their first home win of the season - they will move up to ninth if they claim it this evening, or even eighth if they do so by a margin of nine or more goals!
