FT: West Brom 2 Sunderland 1

And that's full time and me off. If you've enjoyed the commentary then give me a follow at @danielstorey. Have yourselves an enjoyable Saturday evening.

90+3
McClean misses from ten yards. Huge chance with seconds to go!

90+2
Sessegnon runs the ball out of play wehn underland had players forward. Poor play

90+1
We will have three added minutes

90
Fantastic save from Foster. Vaughan shoots and it takes a deflection. Foster holds at the second attempt

88
Odemwingie fires just wide. that would have helped his reputation. A lovely run and effort from the Nigerian

87
Odemwingie has a great deal of making up to do, shall we say!

86
Odemwingie is cominng on to a round of boos. Replacing the excellent Lukaku. The Belgian has been phenomenal today.

85
Fine save from Mignolet to deny Brunt after another Bramble error, not a good day for the defender

83
Fortune on for Morrison

82
Are we in for a grandstand here then? Sunderland's goal came out of nothing, and in fairness they have done little to deserve it

81
David Vaughan on for Johnson

80
Sessegnon curls one home via an Olsson deflection. Out of nothing for Sunderland, and we have a game on

79
Sessegnon gives Sunderland hope. 2-1!!

78
McClean on for Larsson for Sunderland

77
Lukaku was booked for his celebration during his goal

77
Terrific feet from Sessegnon, whose quick feet open up a chance, which is saved by Foster impressively

75
It's nothing more than WBA deserve, but it's another for the Bramble hall of shame. His weak backpass to Mignolet allows Lukaku through on the goalkeeper. Mignolet's clearance rebounds of the Belgian and goes in

74
Lukaku scores a fluke! 2-0

72
A lot of Yacob's work for WBA goes under the radar, but he has been so impressive at breaking up the ball today

69
Again Lukaku shoots, and his shot is put wide by Mignolet.

68
Wonderful move from the home side, and Morrison can only hit the ball against Bramble and wide

67
Shot from Mulumbu, but regulation for Mignolet. West Brom still on top and comfortable, but one goal the difference

66
Shane Long replaced by Graham Dorrans

65
James Morrison works back fantastically to tackle Sessegnon and win the throw

64
Another minute and another shot from Lukaku, this time dragged wide. He has been fantastic today, as all season.

63
Lukaku shoots with power on his left foot, and Mignolet gets down low well to save

61
A little bit of needle has crept into the game over the last few minutes

60
Bramble is lucky not to receive a second yallow for a tackle from behind. A stern talking to from the referee

58
From the free kick Olsson heads over. Half a chance

57
Not for the first time the referee overrules his assistant to award a free kick. Both times he was correct to do so.

55
N'Diaye crosses for Danny Graham. He's on the stretch but should perhaps do better as his touch goes wide.

54
Sunderland look brighter, and a noticeably playing the ball more directly to Fletcher and Graham

52
West Brom win a corner, Long's shot deflected behind

51
From the corner, Sessegnon should score, but instinctvely can only offer a leg. West Brom can clear off the line

50
Free kick to Sunderland out wide, and Olsson forced to clear behind

49
James Morrison fires high and wide from 25 yards

47
West Brom immediately on the front foot here

46
Corner to Sunderland at the start of the half

46
Back underway...

Sunderland are 4/1 to earn a draw after falling behind here, with Steven Fletcher priced at 8/1 to score next with Sky Bet.

And that's half time. Join me for more in 15 minutes

45+2
The difference between the two is that McAuley's arm was by his side

45+2
Adam Johnson wins a corner and wants a penalty for handball. A difficult one for the official

45+1
Two added minutes here

45
Shane Long heads over and that's a good chance, althouhg perhaps a touch high for the striker. Sunderland will be happy to hear the half time whistle

44
Lukaku runs through on goal, but probably holds onto the ball for too long. He should have looked left to Chris Brunt

43
West Brom looking comfortable without offering any real threat in adding to their lead

41
Brunt delivers the free kick, but it is too close to Mignolet

40
Booking for Bramble, who cynically trips Long. An obvious one, shall we say

39
West Brom suddenly playing with a swagger here. That's what a goal can do

38
Last word on that free kick from me. If it's for your side then you want it and if it's against your side you think it's harsh

37
Long misses the target with a header from a free kick

36
Perhaps justice was done, and replays show that Gardner did lift his arms up

35
Possibly a harsh decision for handball against Craig Gardner, but West Brom deserve that after a spell of pressure and a harshly disallowed goal

34
Lukaku scores the penalty. 1-0!!!!

33
Penalty to West brom for handball!!

32
Steven Reid's free kick is blocked by the wall

31
Sunderland definitely kept playing on, so that's harsh on West Brom. Brunt has a free kick

31
Controversy here, as Lukaku finishes but Roger East had already blown for a foul. Surely advantage should have been played?

30
Brunt keeps the ball alive and crosses, but Lukaku is slightly on his heels and fails to reach the ball

28
What a miss by Mulumbu. Ridgwell puts a fantastic ball into the box. Four yards out and he somehow heads wide. Awful, should be 1-0 West Brom

25
Morrison fires across goal but no-one can connect. This game has come alive

24
Three chances for Sunderland in ten seconds! That's more like it. Firstly Fletcher sidefoots against the post. The ball rolls to Fletcher, whose shot is saved by Foster, and then Fletcher fires over

23
Half chance for Lukaku, and the first of the match. Brunt crosses from the left and Lukaku drifts a weak header wide.

21
The game has become really scrappy in the last ten minutes, with free kicks breaking up any gusto. we're not in 'needs a goal territory' just yet.

19
Danny Graham flagged offside. Him and Fletcher have apparently been working well together in Dubai during the week

18
Some sloppy touches and passes appearing here, which are stilting both sides' attempts to attack

17
Referee Roger East gets in the way of a Yacob pass

16
Sunderland win a free kick 35 yards out wide, which Larson will take

14
West Brom just look a little leggy and slow with the ball early on. There is a rather sleepy atmosphere at the Hawthorns

13
Sunderland now dominant in possession, looking to get Johnson on the ball when possible

11
Bramble crosses from out wide, and the ball goes about thirty rows back behind Foster's goal.

10
McAuley will be ok I think

10
McAuley goes down from the corner, and the referee stops play. Collided with his goalkeeper Foster

9
N'Diaye crosses and Olsson clears behind. Sudnerland on top now

8
Chris Brunt fires over from thirty yards as West Brom break

7
Sunderland claim that the ball cross the line from an O'Shea header.

7
Sunderland win the first corner of the afternoon

6
Lukaku wins his first towering header of the afternoon, but Bramble tidies up

5
A low key opening, but Sunderland are now beginning to enjoy spells of possession

4
N'Diaye does his best to attack Olsson, but the big Swede holds him off

3
Sunderland just need to get their foot on the ball. No concerted pressure on them, but yet to gain control

2
Romelu Lukaku showing strength with back to goal early on. That. Will. Happen.

1
West Brom attack early down Sunderland's left hand side

1
We are underway..

Another 'mixed' reception for Odemwingie, who is then just seen laughing on the bench. Lovely touch

Praise deserved for Sunderland's away support. In good voice and numebrs here pre-kick off

Sunderland's record against the Baggies isn't great. West Brom have won five of the last six games between the two. However, if revenge is a dish best served cold, they have ideal temperatures here today

Sunderland are only six points clear of the relegation zone. It really is tight from mid-table down, but surely they are safe?

Sunderland: Mignolet, Gardner, Colback, O'Shea (c), Bramble, N'Diaye, Larsson, Johnson, Sessegnon, Graham, Fletcher Subs: Bardsley, Kilgallon, Vaughan, Mangane, McClean, Cuellar, Westwood

West Brom: Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Brunt, Lukaku, Long Subs: Myhill, Jones, Odemwingie, Tamas, Rosenberg, Fortune, Dorrans

Right, a reminder of the team news for you:

Odewingie's name is roundly booed by those that are here, however, when he is read out by the man on the PA

Twenty minutes until kick off, and the ground not exactly filling up as yet. It is bitterly cold, so perhaps they have made the very savvy decision to follow this commentary instead.

Liam Moran is a Sunderland fan with a view I'm inclined to agree with, though it isn't too positive: "If I know MON, he won't play 4-4-2. He'll put Fletcher on left wing, AJ on right and Sess will get pushed back to RB. with Gardner going into CB (5 at the back). West Brom to beat us 3-1." Thorough, Liam. And I like thorough.

Sunderland also have new signing Alfred N'Diaye starting today. Any other footballing Alfred's other than Ramsey?

Jamie is right to pick up on Sunderland's formation, which sees Danny Graham and Steven Fletcher line up together for the first time. Are they too similar of could this work a treat?

Jamie Cogle has been in touch to offer his thoughts: "so glad MON is playing 442! Good attacking side!"

This fixture has produced bags of goals in recent seasons, with each of their last four encounters racking up over 3.5 goals, which is a 5/2 outcome this time around. In fact, only one of their last seven meetings has seen under 2.5 goals, and seven of Sunderland's last eight Premier League away games have had three or more. On top of that, West Brom have failed to keep consecutive clean sheets in the league since April last year, making Yes on Both Teams To Score at 5/6 on a good prospect.

I have to admit that I am concerned that this one may be a slightly turgid affair, but previous encounters would suggest differently. The game between the two at the Stadium of Light in November was a lunchtime kick off that the Baggies won 4-2

So, Odemwingie back on the bench eh? What are your thoughts on that one Baggies fans?

Before I go one step further, let me implore you to get in touch with me via Twitter (@danielstorey85) with your hopes and dreams (for this match)

Sunderland: Mignolet, Gardner, Colback, O'Shea (c), Bramble, N'Diaye, Larsson, Johnson, Sessegnon, Graham, Fletcher Subs: Bardsley, Kilgallon, Vaughan, Mangane, McClean, Cuellar, Westwood

West Brom: Foster, Reid, McAuley, Olsson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Yacob, Mulumbu, Brunt, Lukaku, Long Subs: Myhill, Jones, Odemwingie, Tamas, Rosenberg, Fortune, Dorrans

I bring you team news!...

Good afternoon and welcome to our live commentary from the Hawthorns, where West Brom take on Sunderland.
