  • FT: West Brom 1 Fulham 2.

  • Great chance for an equaliser but as Lukaku finds Morrison, his deflected effort lands in the greatful hands of Stockdale at the near post.

  • Briggs floors Mulumbu, as Berbatov holds up possession before coming off late on with Senderos taking his place.

  • Three minutes of time is added on.

  • Jones comes agonisingly close to equalise as the ball ricochets off numerous players before being hacked off the line by Sidwell.

  • Morrison's flat cross is quite poor, but as Hangeland meets the ball he is tripped by Long and kills another bit of time for Fulham in their search to hold on to the lead.

  • Penalty claims as Lukaku goes down under Hughes. It's not given though and Stockdale denies another ball in from reaching Odemwingie with a comfortable claim.

  • Sidwell is on hand to head away Odemwingie's ball in, after play continued when Thorne was clattered by Kacaniklic. The corner comes on, but Lukaku sees the ball deflect on to his head and fly wide.

  • A lack of control near the byline sees an opportunity squandered by Long, after an initial ball from Odemwingie set him away.

  • Foster punches away the corner, but West Brom's attack sees Sidwell stand his ground against the oncoming Odemwingie to break down the move.

  • Thorne enters the field with Brunt the man taken off.

  • A sublime ball to Lukaku from Long only results in Stockdale storming out to make the tackle. At the other end, Berbatov's curler clips a West Brom body and the umpteenth corner of the game is awarded.

  • It's end to end stuff now as Odemwingie curls the ball into the six-yard box with Hughes sliding in to concede a corner.

  • Dejagah goes for glory on the edge of the box, but his rasping effort glides wide despite looking like it may just provide Foster with some problems.

  • Ridgewell heads clear, but Dejagah reclaims possession, as his ball into Ruiz sees the striker go down under Tamas, with the referee waving play on despite penalty shouts from Fulham players.

  • Fulham look to create an opportunity down the right, with Berbatov and Riether involved, as the former wins his side a corner.

  • Rodallega looks to make a sensational entrance, but his ambitious drive from outside the box finds only the fans behind goal.

  • West Brom are currently 10/1 with Sky Bet to come back and win this, with Fulham 2/5 on to see out the win. The draw may offer better value at 5/2 though, while Lukaku is 7/a to score next.

  • Karagounis is taken off with Rodallega coming on.

  • West Brom are getting closer, as Long keeps the ball in play near the byline, floating it back into the box where Lukaku heads over from close range.
