  • Points secure for West Brom as Swarbrick brings a close to proceedings. 2-0 to Steve Clarke's men, a much deserved result for the hosts.

  • Palace try to counter from the corner but the move is swiftly shut off by Olsson.

  • Some clever interplay between Brunt and Long and West Brom win another corner.

  • Simply a case of playing the game out now for West Brom as they try to hold onto possession.

  • Palace get a late throw-in near the Baggies box but you suspect it is too little, too late.

  • A final change for West Brom as Stephane Sessegnon is replaced by Matej Vydra.

  • Palace try to attack straight from the restart but Olsson is on hand to clear away. The Baggies defence have held concentration well despite not having all that much to do.

  • MCAULEY! Brunt drives the low corner towards the back post and it is a text-book header after a well timed run from the edge of the box.

  • Amalfitano away down the right and puts an early cross in towards Brunt but Gabbidon - who has been excellent throughout - comes across to boot away.

  • Puncheon swings the corner into the middle of the box but there are no Palace players on hand. Good delivery wasted by the Eagles.

  • Millen makes his final change by bringing on Palace's club-record signing Dwight Gayle in place of . The change means Kevin Phillips will not feature against his former club.

  • CHANCE! Brunt comes close with a right-footed strike after Sessegnon squared into the box. Ball fell to his weaker foot, but a strong strike all the same.

  • Both sides showing signs of tiring as the ball is pinged between the midfielders in the middle of the park.

  • Palace away down the left and Chamakh crosses towards Bolaise but the ball is cleared easily by Olsson.

  • Sessegnon and Berahino controlling the ball on the right before a lofted ball from the latter is unable to Long in the midst of the Palace defenders.

  • Another hold-up as Moxey receives treatment after taking a knock from Speroni whilst clearing the ball from Long.

  • Claudio Yacob comes on to replace James Morrison as Steve Clarke looks to consolidate West Brom's lead.

  • Berahino releases Long in the box but Moxey gets back excellently to steal the ball away. Almost certainly a goal if Moxey didn't intervene there.

  • Another West Brom corner tests Speroni, who eventually gets his body on top of the ball.

  • West Brom regain possession and win a free-kick after Thomas takes down Berahino. No contact with the ball and referee Swarbrick books the midfielder on his 50th Premier League appearance.
