FULL-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

This game is a good bet for last on Match of the Day. My advice: don't stay up to watch it, although the Callum McManaman penalty appeal will cause some chatter. 

Have a safe trip home if you've been at the game. 

FULL-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

And that is that. Few boos at the end, not a great deal to cheer. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton's Steven Davis chips the ball forward to Graziano Pelle, but he is offside. Plenty of huff and puff from the Saints but they haven't looked very sharp today. Lucky for them, nor have West Brom. 

Saido Berahino leads the West Brom counter attack but is tracked by Victor Wanyama and it fizzles out. You can tell the West Brom striker has missed the last few games, he looks rusty. 

INJURY TIME

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Sadio Mane has been involved plenty since coming on but as he shapes to shoot he is blocked on the edge of the area. Four minutes of added time. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

The usually accurate Craig Gardner pulls a shot across goal. That might sum up the day for West Brom as some decide enough is enough and head for the door. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Darren Fletcher is a tad lucky. The West Brom midfielder tries to clear but it is blocked by Dusan Tadic, and the rebound falls to Graziano Pelle, who dribbles a shot towards goal.

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Dusan Tadic whips another cross in from the left but it cannot find a Southampton head. Jonny Evans looks like he might have a touch of cramp and is replaced by Jonas Olsson. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Jonny Evans has picked up a knock but looks OK to continue. It's been a solid debut for the West Brom debutant, but he hasn't had a great deal to do. Sadio Mane may have something to say about that in the closing stages. 

YELLOW CARD

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

West Brom's Chris Brunt becomes the first player to go into the book for a foul. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

First attack from Saido Berahino, who breaks from midfield and slips the ball wide to Salomon Rondon, but when the Venezuelan feeds the ball back, the Southampton defence recover and block Berahino's shot.

SUBSTITUTION

Saints full-back Cedric Soares comes off to be replace by Maya Yoshida. Southampton looking more likely to score as the West Brom impetus fades. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton's Sadio Mane has a decent chance now as he is put through by Graziano Pelle but he cannot pull his shot across goal and it goes wide at the near post. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saints striker Graziano Pelle comes within an inch of poking in Steven Davis's cute pass but he can't stretch far enough to beat Boaz Myhill. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Dusan Tadic fires a cross over from the left this time but Sadio Mane cannot time his jump well enough to connect. Graziano Pelle then gets a kick from Jonny Evans as he chases the loose ball and is not too pleased. 

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton forward Jay Rodriguez is replaced by Sadio Mane. Let's see what he can do after a long international trip for Senegal in midweek. 

CLOSE!

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Chance for the Saints. They break down the left but the ball is delivered too deep for Graziano Pelle to steer in, and when Dusan Tadic arrives at the back post, he cuts back rather than shooting with his right foot and James Ward-Prowse fires over the subsequent lay-off.

Thankfully, the game has increased in intensity

In the balance

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton still bossing possession but the balance of play shows how little they have done with it.

SUBSTITUTION

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

That's Callum McManaman's last action of the game. He's replaced by James McClean as the Baggies seek to use the double change to alter the course of this game. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saido Berahino adds some pace to the West Brom with his presence helping earn a corner. The Baggies fans find their voice but it is cleared. Moments later Callum McManaman attempts to curl one in but shoots a few yard wide. 

CLOSE!

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Wow, Maarten Stekelenburg has got away with one in the Southampton goal. He's been under-employed so far and almost makes a right hash of a deep cross, which loops up into the air. Despite dropping it, he manages to fall on top of the ball with Gareth McAuley loitering.

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

So 10 days after he said he would never play under chairman Jeremy Peace again, the West Brom striker is back on the pitch. A goal here would go down very nicely.

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saido Berahino is coming on to a mixed response, replacing Rickie Lambert. 

Penalty appeal

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton's Victor Wanyama appeals for a penalty as he heads goalwards at the back post but it looked like he hit Darren Fletcher's back.

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Not a thriller this, so Saido's introduction cannot come soon enough. The longer it goes on, the more you think Southampton might be the first team to score.

Saido watch

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saido Berahino takes a run down the touchline and most fans give him a round of applause. A few boos but mostly positive, which will be heartening for the Baggies striker. 

Saido watch

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saido Berahino's integration moves a step closer as he stands up to receive instructions from the West Brom coaching staff. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton debutant Virgil van Dijk gets his head on the set-piece, but it skews wide and West Brom clear. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Southampton's Dusan Tadic moans at Graziano Pelle for not putting him through on goal. But he wins a corner. 

KICK-OFF

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

The Saints get us under way again.

Saido watch

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Saido Berahino is out on the pitch doing a half-time warm-up with the other players. He's still very aware of this surroundings, shall we say. 

HALF-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Without much else going on, the debate at half-time will centre on Callum McManaman's penalty appeal. Replays show that he touched the ball past Matt Taargett, who had dived in, but it looked like the West Brom winger was already flying before he got touched. It will certainly divide opinion!

Southampton are seemingly carrying the greater threat

HALF-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

And that is that for the first half. Pretty subdued at the Hawthorns, get Saido on! 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Steven Davis marauds down the right now, but West Brom snuff the attack out. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

West Brom striker Salomon Rondon leads a break but gets the ball caught up under his feet. Once Southampton are settled in defence, the Baggies are struggling to make any inroads. Two minutes of added time.

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Another attack down Southampton's right, this time Cedric Soares loops a cross to the back post where Craig Dawson heads clear for a corner. Boaz Myhill punches that clear. 

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

Dusan Tadic cuts inside from the right wing and delivers another cross, which is just too deep for Graziano Pelle. No doubting Southampton's main source of attack, though.

West Brom 0-0 Southampton

#bbcfootball Daniel Levy is ridiculous, offered rubbish money for wanyama and berahino and has unsettled players. Woefully unprofessional
