WHU
WBA
90+4'
Mike Dean calls time on a fantastic encounter. A point apiece probably a fair result but both sides will rue missed opportunities that cost them the full haul.
90+3'
The ball suddenly squirms to Joey O'Brien inside his own penalty area but the defender manages to react quickly and hack clear as the West Brom shirts converged on him.
90+2'
 
Anelka keeps the situation alive to cut the ball back to Sessegnon but, in doing so, causes the offside flag to shoot up.
90+1'
Four added minutes signalled by the fourth official.
90'
 
Olsson next to go into the book...
89'
Mulumbu thunders into a challenge inside the West Ham penalty area which sends the ball flying towards goal. Foster snatches it out the air.
88'
Demel flashes a ball in from the left but Nolan, under pressure, can only head over. He wants a corner, mind.
87'
And the game's newest recruit tries to float past a couple of West Ham shirts in the penalty area but his efforts are thwarted by Jaaskelainen.
86'
 
Berhaino, who has put in a great shift today, comes off with Stephane Sessegnon coming on.
85'
Mulumbu brings down Matt Jarvis. The home fans want a second yellow. Mike Dean says no.
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
84'
It's a foot race between the two longest names on the pitch: Jaaskelainen and Amalfitano. The former just manages to smother the opportunity.
83'
 
Final change from Mr Allardyce as Jack Collison comes on for Joe Cole (who had just ballooned a cross out of play).
West Ham United Substitution
82'
It's going to be Berahino to hit it... Smashed against the upright! So close.
81'
 
Terrible challenge from Diame on Brunt. Could have easily broken his ankle but Mike Dean decides it's only a yellow.
80'
Jones smashes his cross against Rat and West Brom have a corner.
79'
Noble hacks down McAuley and West Brom have the chance to relieve the pressure.
78'
 
Claudio Yacob comes on for Brunt. Is that Keith Downing's way of saying a point will do?
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
77'
Diame doesn't react quickly enough to a loose header from teammate McCartney which allows Brunt to intercept and lash a fierce effort at goal. Beaten away by Jaaskelainen.
76'
15 minutes to go. Both sides need the three points. Surely there's a twist or two yet?
75'
Berhaino scampers after a ball through the middle but the flag halts him in his tracks. Time for us all to breath...
74'
Sam Allardyce, hands in his trackie pockets, looks on in disbelief. Still, 3-3 is far better than the 1-2 he was facing just minutes ago...
73'
Jones charges down the right for West Brom before cutting onto his left foot and having a crack. It's tame and Jaaskelainen saves.
72'
Morrison lines up a free-kick from 25 yards goal but his effort cannons into the bottom of the wall. This game is SO open.
71'
Who fancies the 7th goal then? West Brom are next to launch an attack...
70'
 
GOAL! West Ham 3-3 West Brom. Berahino, from a ridiculously tight angle, crashes a shot past Jaaskelainen off the inside of the post. What a game!
69'
 
Morgan Amalfitano comes on for Lugano.
68'
West Ham are pouring forward... Goals breed confidence!
West Bromwich Albion Substitution
67'
 
GOAL! West Ham 3-2 West Brom. Mark Noble drifts through the penalty area, beating men with ease, and stands up a cross to the backpost. Maiga heads down and Nolan volleys in. Crazy turnaround!
66'
Upton Park is rocking again...
65'
 
GOAL! West Ham 2-2 West Brom. Nolan rides a couple of challenges before knocking it onto Maiga. The Mali striker carries the ball towards the visitors' box and curls a shot past Foster which, to be honest, the keeper should do much better with.
64'
Maiga wriggles inside onto his left foot and curls an effort at goal which Foster does brilliantly to palm away for a corner. That's spurred the home fans into life.
63'
It's ghostly quiet. There hasn't been a rousing chant or song for a very long time...
62'
 
Lazy from Maiga who is carelessly caught offside as West Ham looked to launch a quick attack.
61'
Anelka, with teammates left and right, has a crack with a sea of West Ham bodies laid out in front of him. Blocked.
60'
The West Ham fans are just starting to get a bit restless. And there's every reason for them to be concerned - they're losing, don't look like scoring and have no real attacking options on the bench.
59'
Nolan, with his back to goal, tries to extract maximum power from his neck muscles but can't divert his header over Foster.
58'
Brunt tries to disguise the resulting free-kick but all it results in is an overhit effort which Jaaskelainen can gather.
57'
 
Battle of the skippers: Nolan hacks down Brunt on the halfway line and rightly picks up a yellow card.
56'
Rat swings one in towards Miaga but West Brom stand firm with their three centre-halves converging on the loan frontman.
55'
Joe Cole licks his lips and attacks the stationary ball but his effort goes just wide from the edge of the area.
54'
It's another opportunity for West Ham from a dead ball situation. Rat, Joe Cole and Noble stand over it...
53'
Berahino cuts onto his left foot and unleashes a wicked drive at goal but it just evades the goal.
52'
New man Maiga rises high in the opposition half and nods down to Noble who flashes an effort wide.
51'
West Ham have started brightly enough - lots of neat passing - and Nolan wins back the support of a few home fans as he charges after a lost cause.
50'
What a pass from Foster. He pings a 60 yard crossfield ball out to the right flank which lands right on the foot of Morrison. Get him out on pitch.
49'
 
Youssouf Mulumbu goes into the book. He's not happy about that at all.
48'
Anelka attempts a cheeky flick to grab his hat-trick... Jaaskelainen gathers.
47'
 
Hmmm. Carlton Cole off, Modibo Maiga on. Must have an injury - Cole was decent in that first-half.
46'
And we're back underway...
West Ham United Substitution
45+3'
And that's our lot from half number one. West Brom have turned this match on its head and lead 2-1 at the break. See you in 15.
45+2'
 
Just a quick yellow card to bring you up-to-date with... Cartlon Cole entered the book for a high challenge on Olsson.
45+1'
 
GOAL! West Ham 1-2 West Brom. Olsson, fresh from his minor injury scare, rises the highest from the corner and powers a header at goal. It's hacked off the line but only as far as Anelka who, coolly as you like, slots his side into the lead.
45'
Two minutes of added time signalled...
44'
Booming header from a West Brom shirt and the visitors attempt to launch a counter... Joe Cole gets back and intercepts.
43'
Jarvis surges down the left and cannons his cross against McAuley for a corner.
42'
Slight break in play as Olsson receives some treatment.
41'
Well, they did it at Tottenham two days ago and they've done it again today. After falling behind, West Brom have drawn level in the first-half.
40'
 
GOAL! West Ham 1-1 West Brom. Morrison clips a clever ball through the West Ham defence with the outside of his boot and Anelka is one-on-one with Jaaskelainen... Classy dink from the Frenchman, perhaps the coolest finish of the season. Incredibly, that's his first goal for West Brom.
39'
Nope - false alarm. The ROI international is back on his feet and moving fine. A few niggly fouls starting to break up the match's tempo.
38'
Surely not... Joey O'Brien is hobbling. Another West Ham defensive casualty?
37'
Strange old game this one. West Brom look far more comfortable on the ball but all the hosts have to do is hack it through the middle to cause the Baggies all sorts of problems.
36'
Billy Jones gets the better of Jarvis and West Brom have a throw deep inside their own half.
35'
 
Carlton Cole pursues a punt through the middle but his attempts are in vain as the linesman's flag shoots up.
34'
Noble catches it cleanly but it's always curling away from goal and Foster probably had it covered anyway.
33'
Slight lull in proceedings as Nolan goes to ground and wins a free-kick. Noble might have a crack this time.
32'
Both sides getting a fair amount of joy down the flanks, yet both continue to insist on doing the majority of their work through the middle. Very odd.
31'
Jarvis charges after a bouncing ball down the left, reaches it and flashes a cross into the mixer. It evades everyone but breaks to Demel on the edge of the area. The crowd cry 'shoooooot' but the defender - recognising that wonder goals are perhaps not in his armoury - passes. It bobbles around in the area before breaking back to Demel who crashes a shot against the outside of the post.
30'
Anelka has a crack from distance. Charged down.
29'
Lots of sideway passing from West Brom. It looks pretty but you just wonder where their attacking threat is going to come from today?
28'
A glimmer of a chance for West Brom as Morrison drifts into the area but Rat comes across to stop the threat.
27'
The hosts switch it out to the left where Rat has acres of space. The Romanian feeds Matt Jarvis who attacks the full-back before pulling back a low cross into the area. Hacked clear.
26'
Substitute Demel trots back to nod a challenging ball to a teammate as Berahino looms dangerously.
25'
Carlton Cole (who else?) adjusts his body superbly to reach the resulting corner but can't quite direct his header on target.
24'
Instead of shooting, Noble floats a cross to the backpost where George McCartney lurks. The defender does enough to win a corner.
23'
Now then. West Ham force a free-kick from about 30 yards. Noble is lining this one up...
22'
Jonas Olsson fancies having a pop from about 35 yards... His effort is truly dreadful: it trickles off his left boot at about 5mph and, unsurprisingly, is intercepted.
21'
Gareth McAuley writhes around in pain after a slightly naughty challenge from Cartlon Cole.
20'
Upton Park has lost it's early volume as the game descends into a series of errors after the early excitement.
19'
West Brom try to set up camp in the hosts' half but all they end up doing is quickly conceding possession down the left.
18'
Carlton Cole continues to be a problem for the Baggies as he puts his weight about and hassles the opposition defence. It takes two to stop him on this occasion.
17'
It all gets a bit nervy when West Brom push forward. Anelka feeds Morrison inside the area but the midfielder's backheel was either a terrible effort at goal or a poor misplaced pass.
16'
Another chance for West Ham but Carlton Cole's header at the backpost lacks the power to test Foster.
15'
Keith Downing drags his body out of the comfy managerial seat and makes his way to the edge of the pitch to bark instructions. He's not happy.
14'
Matt Jarvis worms his way inside from the left flank and exchanges passes with Mohamed Diame but his cross is claimed comfortably by Ben Foster.
13'
Both sides look comfortable in possession but pretty shaky at the back. The perfect ingredients for plenty of goals.
12'
It's end to end at the moment. The Baggies force another corner which the Hammers nod clear.
11'
West Ham are in again! It breaks to Carlton Cole on the edge of the box and although his effort is poor, the hosts get a second chance as Kevin Nolan follows up with a rasping shot. Well blocked.
10'
West Brom are still up for this and force a corner down the left but it comes to nothing.
West Ham United Substitution
9'
 
Guy Demel joins the action for Tomkins.
8'
Jaaskelainen hoists another long ball into the East London sky and Carlton Cole attempts to make a menace of himself. West Brom manage the danger this time around.
7'
And it doesn't look as though Tomkins is going to be able to continue. West Ham's defensive problems continue.
6'
Slight problem for West Ham as James Tomkins is down injured.
5'
Massive goal for West Ham. Massive goal for Allardyce. Chris Brunt had just blasted into the side netting down the other end, but the Hammers quickly hoofed the ball through the middle and cut the West Brom defence open.
4'
 
GOAL! West Ham 1-0 West Brom. Jaaskelainen immediately gets the ball down for a goal-kick, launches it down field and it breaks for Joe Cole. Can he slot home? He can! West Ham lead! West Brom were attacking just 15 seconds before - great shift of defence to attack from the hosts.
3'
Saido Berahino hounds Mark Noble and the visitors have a chance to break as James Morrison carries the ball into the opposition half...
2'
Early pressure from West Brom sees them force a throw down the left. They've settled quickly and have started knocking it around crisply in the middle.
1'
The usual flock of bubbles float around the pitch harmlessly as "I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles' rings out from the terraces. We're underway.
12:40
Kevin Nolan, casually hoisting the captain’s armband up his arm, shares a little joke with West Brom skipper Chris Brunt in the tunnel. They both giggle awkwardly. The referee makes his way past the players, seizes the match ball and leads the teams out onto the pitch. We're moments away.
12:35
Let’s be honest… On paper this clash is pretty tricky to get excited about. But whilst this game might be screaming ‘0-0’ or ‘avoid at all costs’, remember that both sides desperately need the win – particularly the hosts – and a drab spectacle is unlikely to help Sam Allardyce’s chances of retaining his Upton Park hotseat or attract a big name gaffer to the Hawthorns. So expect goals.
12:30
It wasn’t that long ago when a host of teams beginning with ‘W’ were scaling the heights of the Premier League. But Wigan and Wolves have since fallen into the depths of the Football League leaving just West Ham and West Brom fighting for the tail-end of the alphabet. What are the chances, come the dawn of the 2014/15 season, that both the Hammers and Baggies will be plying their trade in the Championship? On current form: quite likely...
12:25
And those of caretaker manager Keith Downing: "I hope (an appointment) is close for the players' sake. I know there's a lot of speculation but I have really tried to concentrate (on the game). I spoke to (director of football) Richard Garlick but the interview process is ongoing."
12:20
West Ham manager Sam Allardyce's pre-match thoughts: "Our big games are the West Broms and Fulhams in the next two games. It is about performing like that against those clubs, which give you a better chance to win the game. We have to believe, at the end of the day, that we will convert the chances as we did, certainly the home game a few weeks ago against Fulham."
12:15
He’s back. Nicolas Anelka returns to the West Brom starting line-up for the first time since October. Five other changes for Keith Downing as Billy Jones, Gareth McAuley, Youssouf Mulumbu, Chris Brunt and Saido Berahino come in.
12:10
Two changes for Hammers boss Sam Allardyce as Razvan Rat comes in for the injured James Collins who has a calf problem and Jussi Jasskelainen is recalled in goal.
12:05
