  • Cracking game in the North East and West Brom, now up into third place, must surely have proved to any remaining doubters that their lofty league position is no fluke. Sunderland showed plenty of effort, but do apear t be struggling in the final third.

  • GOAL! Lukaku leads another counter and plays the ball to Fortune who curls the ball into the far corner from just inside the box.

  • West Brom counter and Lukaku jinks his way into the box before blasting a shot against the post.

  • Cuellar meets a cross from Sessegnon and his looping header is plucked out of the air by Myhill.

  • We will have a minimum of four minutes of added time.

  • Gabriel Tamas comes on for Morrison as West Brom make their final change.

  • Brunt tries to play in Fortune but Mignolet is able to gather.

  • Ridgewell is booked for a foul on Sessegnon.

  • Hope again for Sunderland, although time is running out.

  • GOAL! Fletcher meets the resulting corner and his bullet header is parried by Myhill, but Sessegnon is first to react and lashes the ball into the roof of the net from close range.

  • Larsson's cross falls to Jonson at the far post and his rasping volley is finger-tipped wide by Myhill.

  • Lukaku gets to the ball inside the box ahead of a hesitant Mignolet, but the angle is tight and al he can do is hook it across th face of goal before Sunderland clear.

  • The home fans are now heading for the exits in their droves - hopes of getting back into the game did not last long.

  • Ridgewell appeared to go down quite easily but there was no contcat by Johnson on the ball and to be fair to the referee, he was very well placed.

  • GOAL! Sub Romelu Lukaku drills the ball low into the Sunderland net.

  • Ridgewell powers into the Sunderland box and is upended by Johnson - referee Dean points straight to the spot.

  • West Brom are enjoying an extended spell in the Sunderland half, but are not endearing themselves to the home fans who believe they are guilty of time-wasting.

  • Ridgewell does well to find Brunt down tghe left, but he scuffs his shot and Mignolet makes an easy catch.

  • Brunt wins a corner that Gera takes and Cuellar does well to head clear under pressure.

  • Plenty of noise from the home support now and their side is firmly on the front foot.
