    Time:90'
    • West Bromwich Albion
    • Tottenham Hotspur
    • 90+3' Full time and it's a point each for West Brom and Tottenham.
    • 90+3' Crouch gets on the end of the corner, however he's adjudged to have fouled the defender.
    • 90+3' The corner is taken short and wasted, now Spurs have a corner!
    • 90+3' Last minute corner for West Brom...
    • 90+2' West Brom finishing with a real flourish. Can they grab a late winner?
    • 90' Three minutes to be added on at The Hawthorns.
    • 89' Tamas wastes another chance for West Brom! More great play from Odemwingie, back heeling the ball into the path of the centre back, who is through on goal. With the goal at his mercy, Tamas fires wide and Spurs survive!
    • 88' Cudicini saves Spurs again! The impressive Odemwingie curls a beautiful effort towards the far post, somehow the Italian gets his finger tips to it at and keeps Tottenham in the game!
    • 87' West Brom are finishing strongly, Harry Redknapp is furious with his team!
    • 86' Olsson meets the corner at the near post and Cudicini makes a smart save to prevent a winner for West Brom!
    • 85' Somen Tchovi on for Marc-Antoine Fortune.
    • 84' Another corner to West Brom, Huddlestone blocking Thomas' effort...
    • 83' Spurs survive the corner and the wait for a third goal goes on.
    • 82' West Brom corner, Kaboul turning Barnes' cross behind...
    • 82' Both sides have made changes in attack, can they produce a winning goal?
    • 80' The corner is aimed towards Crouch at the back post, but he can't get on the end of it.
    • 79' Van der Vaart comes close to a debut goal! He finds himself in space and brings the ball forward before hitting a low drive from 20 yards out. His shot is deflected for a corner...
    • 78' Peter Crouch is involved straight away, trying to get on the end of Bale's long throw. The ball falls to Huddlestone on the edge of the area, he takes one touch to settle himself before hitting a dipping half-volley narrowly wide.
    • 77' Giles Barnes on for Chris Brunt.
    • 76' Peter Crouch on for Aaron Lennon.
    • 75' After a lively start to the half, this game seems to be drifting to a draw now. Is there one more goal in it?
    • 73' Kaboul gets on the end of the corner, he's crowded out and West Brom easily clear the danger.
    • 73' Corner to Spurs, Bale over the ball...
    • 72' Steven Reid on for Paul Scharner.
    • 71' Aaron Lennon bursts forward and feeds Van der Vaart, who in turn lays it off to Huddlestone. His shot is woeful, and bobbles wide.
    • 70' The tempo of the game has slowed slightly in the last ten minutes. Will either team strike again to secure three points?
    • 68' West Brom have been far better in the second half. Roberto Di Matteo clearly got his boys fired up at half time.
    • 67' Jerome Thomas cuts in from the left and unleashes an effort from 20 yards. It's powerfully hit and is narrowly wide.
    • 66' Peter Crouch is warming up for Tottenham. Will Harry introduce another striker and push on for the win?
    • 65' Jerome Thomas is down clutching his head after clashing with Corluka. It's hard to tell how the West Brom man hurt himself there.
    • 64' Robbie Keane on for Roman Pavlyuchenko
    • 63' Bale's cross is good, Kranjcar nodding the ball down to the debutant Gallas, who hooks the ball over the bar from six yards out.
    • 62' Free kick to Spurs next to the corner flag after a block by Tamas on Bale.
    • 61' We mentioned in the first half the record Robbie Keane has against West Brom. Surely Harry Redknapp will introduce him soon?
    • 60' Lennon involved for the first time in a while. Shorey lost the England man and he broke into the box, his low shot at the near post is cleared by West Brom.
    • 59' Chris Brunt is deservedly booked after a deliberate handball stops a Spurs break.
    • 57' Van der Vaart unleashes a dipping shot, it doesn't dip enough though and it's a goal kick.
    • 56' A free kick 25-yards out after Shorey blocks Lennon. The Spurs winger has been very quiet this afternoon.
    • 55' Odemwingie is looking very lively for West Brom. He whips in the free kick, but Carson does well to gather the cross.
    • 54' William Gallas is booked for a clumsy trip on Odemwingie.
    • 53' Scharner wastes a fantastic chance for West Brom. Free header, six yards out and he can only find the stands.
    • 52' Brunt's shot takes two deflections before falling to Fortune. The Frenchman turns and shoots, but his effort is blocked and it's a West Brom corner.
    • 51' West Brom free kick, it's all happening at the moment!
    • 50' Kaboul hits an audacious drive from 40 yards out, forcing Carson into a smart save low to his left!
    • 49' What a chance for Gareth Bale to restore Tottenham's lead! Van der Vaart finds Bale in acres of space and the Wales man is through on goal. He clips a left-footed effort to Carson's left, but the West Brom keeper gets a strong hand to the shot and makes an excellent save.
    • 48' Another break from West Brom, and again it's Odemwingie. As he brings the ball forward Chris Brunt makes an excellent run and finds himself in space. The Nigerian fails to find his teammate, however, and the chance is wasted.
    • 47' Odemwingie involved again, this time balooning a truly horrible shot over Cudicini's crossbar.
    • 46' A lively start to the second half from West Brom and Peter Odemwingie. The Nigeria forward displaying some fancy footwork before feeding Paul Scharner. His ball is slightly over hit and Cudicini gathers.
    • 45' The second half is under way.
    • 45+2' Half time at The Hawthorns and we're all square!
    • 45+1' The game is certainly improving. Hopefully the second half will continue in the same way. Van der Vaart is heavily involved at the moment and he hits an audacious effort well over from 35 yards.
    • 45' Van der Vaart hits the free kick, however it's too easy for Carson and he makes a simple save.
    • 44' Van der Vaart is down and looks in pain after a rash challenge from Jara. The Paraguay defender is carded for his troubles, he's having an uncomfortable afternoon.
    • 43' The goal has lifted West Brom. Odemwingie involved for the first time, evading Palacios before firing a low drive straight at Cudicini. A lot better from the Baggies.
    • 41' Nobody saw that coming! How will Spurs respond?
    • 40' West Brom have equalised! Fortune bursts down the left and powers a drive low at Cudicini, he makes the save but can only send the ball flying into the air. The Italian then loses the aerial battle, with Chris Brunt eventually bundling the ball into the net!
    • 39' Paul Scharner hits a speculative drive narrowly over from 30 yards. It's the closest West Brom have come.
    • 37' It seems like Tottenham are growing in confidence the longer this half goes on, Di Matteo will be wishing for the half-time whistle.
    • 36' Momentary chaos in the Spurs defence, Odemwingie's ball in takes a massive deflection of almost finds Fortune. Gallas intervenes at heads calmly back to Cudicini.
    • 35' Spurs are well and truly on top now. Bale is getting forward at every opportunity, and if Kaboul's through ball was any better he would've been in an excellent position to put a cross in.
    • 34' Kranjcar curls his effort low around the wall, Carson is alert to the danger on gathers the ball.
    • 33' Mulumbu brings down Van der Vaart right on the edge of the box. A chance for Tottenham...
    • 32' Bad news for Spurs, Modric seems to be limping heavily.
    • 31' Niko Kranjcar on for Luka Modric.
    • 30' Another good cross from Brunt, Tamas guides his header towards goal and over the bar.
    • 29' Brunt's cross is a good one, Gallas forced to head behind for a corner.
    • 28' They have a chance from this free kick, Brunt to take from the right...
    • 27' West Brom need to get Fortune and Odemwingie into the game. They've posed no threat to Cudicini so far.
    • 26' Goal for Spurs, and it's Modric! Van der Vaart plays a clever ball up towards Pavlyuchenko, Tamas gets his head to it first, but his clearance falls to Modric, who fires low past Carson. Game on!
    • 24' Bale again looking to get forward and goes past Jara like he isn't there, his cross is decent, but too high for Lennon.
    • 22' Bale's ball in is poor and is straight into the arms of Scott Carson.
    • 21' Set piece in a dangerous position for Spurs, Kaboul up-ended by Tamas...
    • 20' Lennon's chance remains the best we've seen so far. With so many talented attackers in the Spurs team, surely it's a matter of time before the match improves?
    • 19' Carson hoofs the ball out of play under pressure from Pavlyuchenko. This game is yet to reach top gear...
    • 17' Gareth Bale gets into the West Brom danger area for the first time. Kaboul played the Wales international in behind the Baggies defence, his cut back was looking for Van der Vaart, only for Mulumbu to almost divert the ball past Carson into his own net.
    • 16' The West Brom players are unhappy with a free kick awarded to Tottenham. Fortune believed Kaboul was holding his shirt before the Frenchman was eventually felled by Chris Brunt.
    • 15' Maybe Harry will look to introduce the Irish striker in the second half?
    • 14' Robbie Keane has scored eight goals in six Premier League starts against West Brom (Opta stats).
    • 13' Pavlyuchenkio goes down in a heap after a strong challenge, the referee is having none of it and it's a Tottenham throw.
    • 12' Chris Brunt is heavily involved in all West Brom's attacks. This time his ball over the top for Nicky Shorey runs out for a goal kick.
    • 11' Jara gets his head on the end of Brunt's cross, his looping effort is easily gathered by Cudicini.
    • 10' They do have a free kick though, Palacios bringing down Jerome Thomas.
    • 9' Tottenham are seeing a lot more of he ball now and are enjoying a good spell of possession. West Brom struggling to get a kick at the moment.
    • 7' Van Der Vaart has looked lively so far. The deadline day signing looks like money well spent by Harry Redknapp.
    • 6' Lennon wastes a glorious chance for Spurs! He plays a neat one-two with the debutant Van der Vaart.,The Dutchman's clever flick puts Lennon in on goal and he blazes his left-foot shot over from 10 yards.
    • 5' Odemwingie looks to get in behind Gareth Bale, but his progress is halted by the linesman's flag.
    • 4' Brunt's initial corner is blocked and his second is well collected by Cudicini.
    • 4' An awkward clearance from Bale as he slices a harmless cross behind for a corner...
    • 3' Free kick to West Brom as Gallas tugs back Fortune. Early chance for West Brom...
    • 0' We're under way at The Hawthorns.
    • The Baggies will be looking for a repeat of their last home game in the Premier League, when Peter Odemwingie's debut goal gave them a 1-0 win over Sunderland.
    • For West Brom, Marc Antoine Fortune starts up front, with the dangerous Chris Brunt supporting from the left.
    • Rafael Van der Vaart makes his debut in the Spurs midfield, with Roman Pavlyuchenko selected as the lone striker.
