  • That's full-time then and a huge boost for the Baggies. Sessegnon, Ridgewell and Amalfitano hand them their first win of the season, and condemn Sunderland to bottom place.

  • GOAL! Man of the match Amalfitano rounds off the win for West Brom, lashing home a strong strike to make it 3-0.

  • Sessegnon replaced by Saido Berahino as West Brom look to close out the game.

  • Ki Sung-Yeung is now down for Sunderland, it's not getting any better for Paolo Di Canio. He manages to return to the pitch however.

  • Amalfitano's deft cross created all sorts of problems for Sunderland there, and West Brom capitalised excellently.

  • GOAL! Ridgewell gets there first to a cross tipped away by Westwood, firing home to make it 2-0 as West Brom break on the counter!

  • Terrible news for Sunderland as Fletcher is stretchered off.

  • Altidore's great low cross finds Fletcher racing in, and you'd back the Scotsman in that situation but it flies just over. Worryingly for Sunderland, the striker is still down after falling awkwardly. All substitutions have been used.

  • For Sunderland, Cattermole replaces Gardner.

  • Sinclair and Anelka both head off to applause for West Brom, with Yacob and new-boy Anichebe coming on.

  • Anelka nearly doubles West Brom's lead with a deflected header.

  • Great move from Sunderland as Mavrias moves the ball out wide. The delivery is clever, finding Altidore who dropped off from his marker. His shot deflects just wide however, with shouts for a handball ensuing.

  • Frustration may be creeping in for Sunderland as Gardner's 25-yard effort flies well over.

  • Sessegnon seems to be trying to prove a point to someone, any idea who? A great turn and powerful effort flies just over.

  • On comes Jozy Altidore for the energetic but nonthreatening Fabio Borini.

  • The corner came to nothing, but Sunderland continue to apply the pressure. West Brom, as of yet, are standing firm.

  • Gardner's delivery flies in and takes a deflection off a Baggies player, so it's a Sunderland corner.

  • Sunderland, as aforementioned have come out of the blocks raging in this second-half. A free-kick on the edge of the 18-yard box awaits...

  • Mavrias has replaced Giaccherini in Sunderland's only half-time substitution. No changes for WBA.

  • Here comes the second half then, and Sunderland look fired up.
