  • It's full time at Selhurst Park and it's a massive three points for Crystal Palace. It gives Tony Pulis' side a huge boost in their quest to remain in the Premier League. For West Brom and Pepe Mel, their lack of attacking threat in the first half ultimately cost them the game. Palace move up to 13th, whilst the Baggies drop into the relegation zone. Thanks for joining me!

  • West Brom are trying to force an effort on goal, but Palace defend resolutely. Palace close to a vital win.

  • CHANCE! A corner from West Brom is whipped into the six yard box and Ward's clearance rebounds off Berahino and nearly finds the net. A bizarre incident which represents West Brom's lack of fortune this afternoon.

  • Morrison concedes a cheap free kick midway through West Brom's half. Jedinak attempts to catch out Foster with a quickly taken free kick, but is met easily from Foster.

  • A short corner gives Ince the chance to cross in, but sends it high, wide and not very handsome. A rare error in a sparkling display from Ince.

  • A lovely chipped ball finds Joel Ward, who surges down the byline and sees his cross deflect behind for a corner to Palace.

  • A persistent run from Billy Jones gives him an opportunity on the corner of Palace's box. His shot is weak and falls into Speroni's grasp.

  • Marouane Chamakh comes off for Jerome Thomas.

  • CHANCE! Superb run by Anichebe who shrugs off two Palace defenders, but fires disappointingly over. It's not been the Nigerian's day today.

  • Morrison is slipped through and attempts a low, curled finish which is met comfortably by Speroni.

  • Corner hangs in the wind and is met by Chamakh who heads out for a WBA throw in.

  • Thievy appeals for a penalty after slight contact from Parr, replays suggest the Frenchman lost his footing. Deflection gives WBA a corner.

  • Chris Brunt scythes down Tom Ince with a late challenge. A textbook yellow card for the Northern Irish international.

  • Anichebe's powerful run is dealt with by Joel Ward, whose clearance finds Berahino who takes on Dikgacoi and selfishly shoots from a near-impossible angle straight into Speroni's arms. There were better options there for the West Brom forward.

  • Jonathan Parr comes on for Yannick Bolasie.

  • WBA have continued their earlier pressure and are continually pumping balls into Palace's box, who are defending resolutely.

  • Brunt plays a long ball over to Anichebe, whose effort is blocked by Dann and rebounds out for a corner. A lovely ball in from Brunt just evades McAuley. Palace clear.

  • The goal comes against the run of play, with West Brom looking dangerous since the second half started. Palace looked confident on the counter attack though, and made West Brom pay for their missed chances.

  • Glenn Murray receives a wonderful reception from the Palace fans, who comes on to replace Jason Puncheon. It's Murray's first appearance this season.

  • Claudio Yacob comes off for Saido Berahino.
