  • Swansea are controversially condemned to a 2-1 defeat by West Brom at The Hawthorns after a late effort was wrongly disallowed. Swansea had taken the lead through former Baggies player Moore's second goal in two games. But Lukaku's fourth goal in three matches levelled the scores before half-time prior to the on-loan Chelsea striker seeing a penalty saved by Vorm. De Guzman's own goal then proved to be what was the winner but Swansea will be furious a last-gasp Lamah strike was incorrectly ruled out for offside. Stay with us for all the post-match reaction.


  • West Brom's substitutions have worked. They are now finishing the game on the front foot and are winding down the clock.

    90 + 3
  • ADDED TIME: There will be a minimum of four minutes added time before the final whistle.

    90 + 1
  • Swansea's disallowed goal is going to be a huge talking point. Replays show the ball clearly deflected back to Lamah off a combination of Foster and McAuley.

  • Dyer is booked for a late challenge on Ridgewell.

  • Fortune and Thomas come on for Morrison and Dorrans.

  • Swansea think they have equalised but Lamah is denied what would have been his first goal for the club. He ran past a back-peddling Ridgewell and then the ball fell for him to tap-in from close-range. But the goal is disallowed for a perceived offside. Replays show the ball fell for Lamah from a deflection off a West Brom player. It is a wrong decision.

  • But Odemwingie then breaks forward against Monk and Williams. He runs into the penalty area from the left but his shot almost goes out for a throw-in.

  • West Brom are definitely taking a risk by dropping deep and they are missing a player to hold the ball up now Lukaku has gone off.

  • Ki, who has been a passenger today, tries his luck from 25 yards but his low effort is a simple save for Foster when straight at the goalkeeper.

  • A cross flies through the West Brom penalty area and Michu cannot quite react. They keep the ball in the danger area.

  • West Brom look like they will be good value for the points. They have dominated the second half. But they are continuing to drop deep an invite pressure in the closing minutes.

  • With the ball out of play, West Brom take off Lukaku, who has been superb apart from his penalty failure, and send on Odemwingie. The latter receives a mixed reception.

  • Chance for Michu but, after being teed-up by Dyer, his volley from inside the penalty are is skied over the cross bar by his right foot.

  • West Brom are starting to drop a bit deep. That could be risky with around 10 minutes left to play.

  • Corner to Swansea on the right. De Guzman's set-piece finds Williams but he cannot get his touch on target. Swansea keep the ball alive but West Brom then hoof clear up field.

  • From the corner, the ball drops to Lukaku. He volleys towards goal and the ball deflects behind off Lamah. But the match officials do not spot the deflection and give a goal-kick.

  • Corner to West Brom after Williams deflects away a Dorrans shot. Swansea send on Shechter in place of Routledge.

  • It looks like West Brom are ready to send on Odemwingie, while Swansea are preparing Shechter.
