That's it from me. Look out for the report imminently.

But in the meantime, get your reaction from this live page right over here.

FULL-TIME

West Brom 1-1 Swansea

Well, I honestly did not see that coming.

Victor Anichebe deserves bundles of credit for keeping that Albion opportunity alive with a tremendously brave header in the mixer. Swansea drop to 16th, and the Baggies go up to 13th.

GOAL - West Brom 1-1 Swansea

Salomon Rondon

Salomon Rondon scores
PA

Oh boy oh boy oh boy.

Those Albion fans streaming for the exits might have been stopped in their tracks.

A West Brom corner is scrambled all over the place. It's cleared off the line once from a Daren Fletcher effort before Salomon Rondon applies the finishing touch.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Saido Berahino has a chance to be a hero for West Brom. But his 20-yard effort is wide. Not that any Albion fans would have seen it, as they're all heading to the exits.

HITS THE WOODWORK

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Almost the debut goal Alberto Paloschi's performance deserves.

He meets Kyle Naughton's low ball at the near post and clips it against the upright.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Gylfie Sigurdsson gets 50 shades of excited when he makes some space on the edge of the area, but it's too much excitement as he drags wide.

West Brom looking content with a 1-0 defeat as it stands.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Salomon Rondon concedes a free-kick for - get this - a dangerous low head.

The perennially angry Tony Pulis is even more perennially angry as a result.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Andre Ayew is a masterful actor.

The board goes up to tell him he's coming off for Jordi Amat and Ayew pretends he hasn't seen it. Even when he's told by the referee he pretends nothing is happening. It buys Swansea more time.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Angel Rangel hits another looping volley, but this time it's over his own bar. That gives West Brom a corner which gets nodded around all over the penalty area until Saido Berahino gets an effort on target, but he's offside.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Victor Anichebe wriggles away from the Swansea defence and rifles in a stinger, but Lukasz Fabianski gets down to tip it round the post.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Angel Rangel doesn't score many. And you can tell why. He tries a dipping volley, but the dipping part doesn't begin until about row L.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

West Brom make their final change as Victor Anichebe comes on for Sandro. Swansea get a chance from a corner, but Ashley Williams heads straight at Ben Foster.

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Here are Alberto Paloschi's touches on his debut, after coming on just before half-time.

Not many touches, but a good number in and around the penalty area.

Paloschi

West Brom 0-1 Swansea

There's definitely something about this Alberto Paloschi fella.

Gylfi Sigurdsson leads a Swansea break and when Paloschi receives the ball, he tries to jink it away from his man and just fails to do so.

GOAL - West Brom 0-1 Swansea

Gylfi Sigurdsson

Well, I don't think West Brom fans can blame this on Saido Berahino, but it's moments after he came on.

Leon Britton makes a lovely surge from midfield and slips a ball to Alberto Paloschi in the area. Gareth McAuley nudges it away from him but it goes straight to Gylfi Sigurdsson who strokes it into the bottom-left corner from 12 yards or so.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Saido Berahino is removing his tracksuit.

Berahino is coming on.

Stephane Sessegnon is coming off.

There are noticeable boos. Booharino, if you will.

Gylfi Sigurdsson, meanwhile, is scuffing a shot wide.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

A curious substitution for Swansea. Neil Taylor goes off and Kyle Naughton comes on. That's a left-back for a right-back. Taylor looks slightly puzzled and a little miffed.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Darren Fletcher could maybe have had a hat-trick of headers tonight.

James McClean does superbly well to turn Angel Rangel inside out and get in the cross, but Fletcher, eight yards out at the back post, loops the header over.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

While Jonny Evans has the mobility of a combine harvester, Andre Ayew's eyes light up at the back post when he's presented with a half-volley, but he miscues.

Finally Evans is off. On comes Craig Gardner, who goes to right-back and Craig Dawson moves to centre-back.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

West Brom need to make a change. Jonny Evans is holding his hamstring and pulling one of those faces which says "nope, I can't carry on gaffer".

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Salomon Rondon gets a jog on down the right wing and forces Ashley Williams to scramble it behind for a corner, but West Brom can't make anything of it.

Saido Berahino is warming up...

KICK-OFF

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

So here we go again. If we can continue the second half the way we ended the first, I'll be made up I will.

West Brom kick-off.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Good news on Ki Sung-yueng by the way.

UPDATE: Ki Sung-Yueng is OK following the clash of heads in the first half, just a little concussed. #swans

HT: West Brom 0-0 Swansea

So that nasty looking head injury to Ki Sung-Yueng meant there was a good seven minutes added on to the first half. This was one of the few games to kick-off at 20:00 GMT too, so we could be in for a late night folks.

Not great news if you've got to get back to Swansea.

HT: West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Public service announcement for Swansea fans.

Your former boss Garry Monk is on Match of the Day tonight. He's so excited he even retweeted our tweet. Good lad, Garry.

Following on from that Albion fan's tweet, I have a West Brom supporting pal at the Hawthorns tonight. He told me earlier I should be thankful I don't have to watch them every other week.

But I enjoyed (the last seven minutes of) that half.

HALF-TIME

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

And that brings to an end a first half that was nowhere as bad as it looked like it might be at one point.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

We've had a full game of chances crammed into seven minutes of injury time.

Stephane Sessegnon goes for goal with a free-kick from the left side of the area and Lukasz Fabianski has to be sharp to save it.

Can we not play injury time all the ime?

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

What an introduction that could have been for Alberto Paloschi. Wayne Routledge pokes a ball through and the Italian is on to it, but Ben Foster charges out to block the shot and keep West Brom level.

Paloschi famously scored 20 seconds into his AC Milan debut - but the repeat wasn't to be.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

So hopefully Ki Sung-yueng is OK.

But Swansea need to shuffle the pack, with Alberto Paloschi going up top and Andre Ayew moving deeper.

Ki Sung-yueng
PA

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

New signing Alberto Paloschi is ready to come on for Swansea, but he'll be waiting a while.

The stretcher is out for Ki Sung-yueng. He's awake, but has barely moved. All sides of the ground applaud as he is carried off.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

So, in the build-up to that chance, Stephane Sessegnon's head collides with Ki Sung-yueng's. He's being treated and has not been on his feet since.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

More action, which is something we're not used to. Jonny Evans keeps the ball alive at the Swansea by-line and pulls it back to Darren Fletcher, but he miscues.

More worryingly, Ki Sung-yueng is down and not looking in good shape.

Sandro
PA

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

The brilliant thing about that chance though, is it started so ridiculously amateurishly.

James McClean initially stood over the ball and about 19 different Albion players ran around in all sorts of directions as McClean ran up to the ball but changed his mind at the last moment.

Maybe it was all just a ruse?

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

West Brom should be a goal up. They attempt a fancy free-kick routine (more on that in a moment), but in the end Stephane Sessegnon swings it in and Craig Dawson completely misses his header six yards out.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Swansea have injected a bit of pace now and Wayne Routledge gets to charge at the West Brom defence with the ball at his feet. He feeds Andre Ayew down the left channel but the shot is slapped into the side netting.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

It's one of those nights where it will take something special and Swansea's Gylfi Sigurdsson almost provides it.

A loose ball bounces in front of him in the middle of the park and he swings a left boot to apply a dipping half-volley from 35 yards. Ben Foster scrambles back and nudges it around the post.

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Ladies and gentlemen. The contribution of West Brom striker Salomon Rondon after half an hour is three touches.

(West Brom are at home).

Rondon

West Brom 0-0 Swansea

Hmmm. Interesting one. West Brom's James McClean gets in a tangle with Gylfi Sigurdsson in the area. The Icelander stays on his feet, but there may have been a decision to be made had he gone down.
