    Time:90'
    • West Bromwich Albion
    • Stoke City
    • 90' FULL-TIME: WEST BROM 0-3 STOKE
    • 90+3' Jon Walters smashes the ball into the roof of the net, after having his intial effort blocked, to put the seal on Stoke's victory.
    • 90+3' GOAL! WEST BROM 0-3 STOKE (Jon Walters)
    • 90+2' West Brom come close again with Tchoyi forcing Begovic to save and, moments later, Cech striking over the bar from a great central position in front of the goal.
    • 90' There will be three minutes of stoppage time at the end of the match
    • 87' A goal-mouth scramble deep in the Stoke box could have seen the ball ending up anyway. As it is, Begovic dives on the ball after Tchoyi failed to convert from just a few yards out
    • 85' Walters sends Carson the wrong way, placing the ball into the right-hand corner of the net to bring Stoke into a two-goal ascendancy
    • 85' GOAL! WEST BROM 0-2 STOKE (John Walters pen)
    • 84' Dean Whitehead and Simon Cox tangle in the West Brom box, and Foy gives another harsh penalty for the visitors
    • 84' PENALTY FOR STOKE
    • 83' Final Stoke sub: Ricardo Fuller is coming off for Mark Wilson
    • 82' It would be a fourth defeat in five games as things stand for West Brom
    • 81' Stoke sub: Goal-scorer Etherington comes off for Jon Walters
    • 80' Final West Brom sub: Graham Dorrans comes on for Youssouf Mulumbu
    • 79' A Simon Cox drive is deflected behind for a West Brom corner, but Stoke are well versed in dealing with yet another poor Baggies set-piece delivery into the box
    • 77' West Brom continue to push forward, but that final ball is lacking quality and their deliveries into the box - the latest from Odemwingie - is sloppy at best.
    • 75' Begovic is required to tip over as West Brom's Tchoi sends a looping header towards goal. From the resulting Odemwingie corner, Cech smashes well over the bar from 30 yards out.
    • 72' Stoke look to be employing time-wasting tactics, as we have less than 20 minutes for West Brom to try to salvage something from this match
    • 69' Tchoyi hits the ball across the face of the Stoke goal but no West Brom player can get a crucial touch for that equaliser. Moments later, the sub forces Begovic into a fine one-handed save after shooting from long-range. West Brom already shwoing more signs of life.
    • 66' West Brom sub: Somen Tchoyi is coming on for Giles Barnes
    • 65' Another woeful cross from West Brom - this time courtesy of Jerome Thomas who fails to find a teammate with a poor delivery from the left.
    • 62' A Delap throw-in comes out to Stoke's Tuncay on the edge of the box, but his first-time volley goes over the bar
    • 60' Poor pass from Marek Cech who gives the ball straight to Stoke. Jones's shot from the edge of the box is straight at Carson, though. Big let off for the home side
    • 59' West Brom beginning to lose their way since the penalty decision, as Stoke and, in particular, Etherington, have grown in confidence.
    • 57' West Brom sub: Simon Cox is coming on for James Morrison
    • 56' Etherington cooly slots the penalty home for Stoke, but it should never have been given
    • 56' GOAL! WEST BROM 0-1 STOKE (Matthew Etherington pen)
    • 55' Terrible decision from Chris Foy as Kenwyne Jones dives over Scott Carson to win a penalty for Stoke
    • 55' PENALTY TO STOKE
    • 54' West Brom increasing the pressure as Mulumbu feeds Thomas down the left, but his cross is failed to be gathered by Morrison who falls over
    • 53' Thomas whips in a cross from the left for Odemwingie, but the ball bounces off the striker and leads to a Stoke goal-kick
    • 51' Jones feeds Tuncay down the right flank, but the Turkish striker blazes his cross out for a West Brom goal-kick
    • 49' We seem to still be lacking the quality of play which was missing throughout the first 45 minutes...
    • 47' Odemwingie sends a poor delivery from the left over everyone, and Jara's follow-up is snuffed out by the Stoke rearguard
    • 46' And we're back underway for the second half
    • 45' Half-time: West Brom 0-0 Stoke
    • 45+3' Thomas has sent two poor crosses into the Stoke box from the left. The second one eventually falling to Odemwingie who kicks the turf rather than the ball. Not clever
    • 45+2' Stoke attempt to counter with Jones but his pass is poor in attempting to release Etherington.
    • 45' Three minutes of stoppage time to be played
    • 44' The game is swinging backwards and forwards and Whitehead is the latest player to go down holding his head. It will be interesting to see how much stoppage time there will be at the end of this first-half.
    • 43' Clash of heads between Paul Scharner and Fuller sees both sets of physio's on for player treatment
    • 42' Odemwingie twists and turns to create space on the edge of the Stoke box, but his eventual shot is weak and straight into the arms of Begovic. All that hard work for nothing from the West Brom striker
    • 40' David Moyes keeping tabs on West Brom in the Hawthorns crowd - Everton face The Baggies next weekend
    • 39' Tuncay cynically trips Thomas for a West Brom free-kick on the edge of the Stoke area. But it's a poor effort from Odemwingie as his direct strike travels harmlessly over the bar.
    • 37' Morrison goes down after jumping high for the ball. The midfielder is winded but should be ok to continue
    • 35' Mulumbu brings down Tuncay on the Stoke right wing. A good delivery here could cause problems for West Brom, but the Baggies snuff out the Turk's free-kick
    • 34' Cech feeds Jerome Thomas down the left flank. However, the winger ultimately runs out of space and the ball goes behind for a Stoke goal-kick. Thomas should have crossed into the box earlier
    • 33' Fuller cuts in from the Stoke left, but he is clinicially cut out as West Brom regroup in defence
    • 32' A couple of poor deliveries in a row from West Brom now, as they begin to crank the pressure on Stoke. First, Odemwingie takes a poor corner which evades everyone. Next, the striker lays the ball off for Barnes but he can't find a Baggies player in the box.
    • 30' Another Barnes delivery is cut out by Shawcross with James Morrison following in from behind. A crucial intervention from the Stoke centre-back, as Morrison would surely have found the net had he not been there.
    • 29' Giles Barnes whips the ball into the Stoke box from the right, but no Baggies player is able to make contact with that inviting delivery.
    • 27' Etherington sprints down the Stoke left and it looks promising for the away team. However, the winger's delivery is ballooned over the bar as Jones was making a darting run into the box. A wasted opportunity
    • 24' Jara lays the ball off for Mulumbu and his shot from outside the box rises over Begovic's goal. Could attempt from the Baggies player though
    • 22' Ibanez cuts out a Tuncay delivery and, from the resulting corner, Delap is unable to re-direct Etherington's set-piece back across the West Brom goal
    • 20' It's getting a little scrappy at the moment, with neither team settling into any kind of rhythm
    • 18' Tuncay takes a free-kick about 35 yards out, but Robert Huth's flick on is easily smothered by Carson. He then sends the ball upfield to Odemwingie, but ref Chris Foy brings a stop to play. Could have been problems there for Stoke without the officials' intervention
    • 16' Marek Cech curls the ball into the Stoke box, but Begovic comes out to claim unchallenged.
    • 15' Rory Delap winds up one of his long throws out on the Stoke left, but it fails to deliver the goods. The Delap missile hasn't been as effective as last season
    • 14' Corner for Stoke to be taken by Etherington - the winger's whipped delivery is well cleared by West Brom
    • 12' Stoke Sub: Sanli Tuncay is coming on for Pennant
    • 12' Pennant goes down with a hamstring injury and a substitution for Stoke is surely imminent
    • 11' Dean Whitehead looks for the one-two with Ricardo Fuller but the return pass is collected by an on-rushing Scott Carson before Whitehead can get a foot to it
    • 10' Pennant seems to be struggling, and he hits a wayward ball over after good link-up play from Matty Etherington and Kenwyne Jones down the left
    • 8' Jermaine Pennant is brought down on the Stoke right, but the ball into the box is cleared well by the West Brom backline.
    • 7' West Brom win a free-kick out on the left wing, but Odemwingie's delivery is too close to Asmir Begovic who collects comfortably
    • 5' Lively start from both teams and it is West Brom who are keeping control of possession well.
    • 3' Peter Odemwingie has a shot on the turn but it is blocked by Ryan Shawcross
    • 1' And we're underway at a packed Hawthorns
    • 14:55 If Stoke were to win today, it would break a run of defeats in each of their last three PL away matches. If they were to lose, then it would be the Potters' second longest away-losing run in the Premier League. So plenty at stake, here
    • 14:50 Tony Pulis keeps faith with the same starting XI that defeated Liverpool 2-0 in their last Premier League outing.
    • 14:45 Stoke have no fresh injury concerns after Glenn Whelan, Jon Walters and Marc Wilson all returned back from international duty unscathed - the trio make up The Potters' bench today. Striker Ricardo Fuller will be hoping to add to his recent fine goalscoring form, having netted in the club's last two PL matches. If the Jamaican scores today, he will be the second Stoke player to score in three consecutive games this season after Kenwyne Jones netted against Aston Villa, West Ham and Newcastle.
    • 14:40 West Brom's Chris Brunt is ruled out of today's game after injuring his groin while on international duty with Northern Ireland. Jonas Olsson and Ishmael Miller also miss out, but Gonzalo Jara returns to the starting XI after completing a three-match ban. Peter Odemwingie leads the line and will be hoping to add to his two home goal tally - the striker is the only Baggies player to have scored more than once at The Hawthorns this season.
    • 14:35 Team news... West Brom: Carson, Jara, Tamas, Pablo, Cech, Barnes, Morrison, Mulumbu, Scharner, Thomas, Odemwingie. Subs: Myhill, Tchoyi, Reid, Dorrans, Shorey, Fortune, Cox. Stoke: Begovic, Wilkinson, Shawcross, Huth, Collins, Pennant, Whitehead, Delap, Etherington, Jones, Fuller. Subs: Sorensen, Higginbotham, Whelan, Gudjohnsen, Wilson, Walters, Sanli. Referee: Chris Foy (Merseyside)
    • 14:30 So, after a fine start to the season, it is Roberto Di Matteo's West Brom who are slipping fast down the table; while Stoke's back-to-back wins, which included an impressive victory over Liverpool last time out, would appear to suggest that Tony Pulis' men are beginning to click into stride
    • 14:25 Stoke, meanwhile, have won their last two PL matches and, should they win today, it will be the first time that they have ever won three Premier League games in a row. Extra motivation for Tony Pulis' men then, although perhaps that is tempered somewhat by the fact that the club have a poor record in the Midlands and have only picked up three away points all season.
    • 14:20 Although both teams are currently locked on the same number of points in the table (16), the similarities appear to end there. West Brom go into this game on a poor run of form - they haven't won in their last four PL matches, they've kept only one clean sheet this season, and have conceded 22 goals already including at least one goal in each of their last 11 PL matches.
