  • The final whistle goes and Fulham run out deserved 3-0 winners. West Brom fought hard in the second period but the damage was done in the first half when Berbatov scored twice and Odemwingie was sent off.

  • Duff is given a tremendous ovation as he goes off to be replaced by youngster Smith for the final couple of minutes.

  • Mulumbu's shot from the edge of the area takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner.

  • GOAL Sidwell puts the icing on the cake for Fulham with a volley from close range after Foster had saved from Kasami and the ball looped up for Rodallega to head against the crossbar.

  • Foster parries away a ferocious long-range strike from Rodallega and Kasami drags the rebound wide from a tight angle.

  • Jones is presented with perhaps West Brom's best chance of the afternoon as he latches on to a free-kick at the back post, but he cannot connect powerfully with his shot and Schwarzer makes a solid stop.

  • Fulham manager Jol makes his first change, bringing on Kasami for Kacaniklic for the closing stages.

  • Riether goes down in the area under pressure from Brunt but the referee waves play on and West Brom's players are not happy with the Fulham full-back as they think he dived.

  • Berbatov is denied by a smart stop from Foster after being picked out by a clever pass from Baird.

  • Fulham are making West Brom chase shadows with a period of sustained possession, and their fans are loving the way the Baggies are being toyed with.

  • Rodallega has not quite got his radar right today despite plenty of hard work, as he smashes a volley high and wide after setting himself up well with a skilful first touch.

  • West Brom make their third and final change, replacing Yacob with another summer signing in Rosenberg.

  • The ten men of West Brom are having to work hard to repel Fulham and they are beginning to look tired, with the home team applying some serious pressure.

  • Foster is at the centre of the action at the moment as he dives to his left to palm away another deflected shot, this time from Rodallega after a fine run from Duff.

  • This is an even better save from Foster and it is instinctive stuff as he somehow reacts to Duff's long-range shot taking a wicked deflection to throw up his left hand and turn the ball over the bar.

  • Foster pulls off a decent stop from Sidwell's swerving 25-yard strike before quickly getting up to gather the rebound before Duff can pounce.

  • West Brom are beginning to commit a few men forward in an effort to find a way back into this game, and Lukaku is proving to be a handful as he wins a corner.

  • Lukaku has a shot from inside the area half-blocked by a couple of defenders, taking the pace off the ball and allowing Schwarzer to make a comfortable save.

  • Fulham have been restricted to long shots from distance in the second half and Duff's effort here is deflected wide for a corner.

  • Brunt takes the corner himself and drills it low, nearly taking Schwarzer by surprise as it canons into the outside of the post.
