FT: West Brom 0-1 Leicester

West Brom get that unwanted club record of five consecutive games without a goal - the first time in their history.

And the misery continues. They have also now lost four on the bounce for the first time since December 2014. 


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

That's it.

Mark Clattenburg calls time on his final game in the Premier League as Leicester celebrate three more points.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Stoppage time at The Hawthorns.

West Brom are heading for a fifth game without a goal, and it looks as though another home game is slipping away from the Albion.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Mark Clattenburg has finally been called into action.

He's given a free-kick just outside the area to Leicester. Marc Albrighton is challenged by Darren Fletcher and the referee has got that absolutely right.

It was outside the area.

And Leicester won't hurry this. They'll take it to the corner. 


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Nearly a gift for West Brom.

Robert Huth lets the ball go and expects Kasper Schmeichel to come for it but the goalkeeper doesn't realise Nacer Chadli is lurking just behind him.

The Albion man just can't bring the ball down to beat Schmeichel and the chance comes to nothing.

Huth gets away with it.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Salomon Rondon has not had a happy afternoon.

Tony Pulis has his hands on his head as the number nine sends a header sailing wide.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Riyad Mahrez could have put the game to bed there.

He drifted inside Gareth McAuley but his shot curled round the far post, and that's his last shot of the game too.

Andy King trots onto the field to replace the winger.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Another brilliant cross from the left-hand side by James McClean but James Morrison's header is gathered easily by Kasper Schmeichel.

That's Albion's second attempt on target this afternoon.

And that will be Morrison's final contribution.

West Brom are bringing on 18-year-old Jonathan Leko to replace him with just over 12 minutes to go.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

West Brom with another good break and it's the substitute James McClean again.

But his low cross can only find the feet of Kasper Schmeichel, who saves well at the near post. 

It promised so much, but the end product just isn't there for Albion.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

West Brom are playing with slightly more urgency now.

They've all but secured their Premier League survival, but have stalled since reaching that 40-point mark.

James McClean floats a cross into the box from the left and the ball finds its way out to Jake Livermore on the edge of the area but he's closed down and the chance comes to nothing.


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

On comes West Brom captain Darren Fletcher, who was left on the bench this afternoon for tactical reasons.

His side need some inspiration here, and leadership.

Claudio Yacob is the player to make way.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Marc Albrighton with a storming run down the left-hand side but Leicester only have two in the box and he can't find either of them.

The Foxes are in control of this game.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

James Morrison is the third player in Mark Clattenburg's book - his tackle on Riyad Mahrez looked slightly out of control.

Leicester take the opportunity to make their first change of the afternoon as Leonardo Ulloa comes on to replace Shinji Okazaki.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Over an hour gone now and still no goal for West Brom.

Nacer Chadli takes yet another free-kick from just outside the box.

And he isn't too far away. But Kasper Schmeichel doesn't look worried. 


West Brom make the first substitution as Allan Nyom is replaced by James McClean.


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Leicester go close to doubling their lead.

Danny Drinkwater feeds Riyad Mahrez, but he fires his shot into the side netting with Ben Foster scrambling across.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Another touch for Jamie Vardy as he plays the ball into Shinji Okazaki at the other end - but he's crowded out and Albion get the ball clear.

A heart-stopping moment follows, though, as Allan Nyom slices his clearance and it almost falls to a waiting Okazaki.


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

The Albion crowd are clearly getting restless now.

But their team have got a corner, and Craig Dawson goes so close.

He gets up well at the near post but it comes off a team-mate - Gareth McAuley inadvertently diverting the ball wide of the left-hand post.

The two players have a little smile at each other. It's a nervous one though.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Remarkably, Jamie Vardy has touched the ball just eight times in this game.

And he's the only man on the scoresheet so far this afternoon.



West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Yohan Benalouane pulls back James Morrison as he charges towards the box and is shown a yellow card.

Nacer Chadli puts the ball down for the free-kick and he's all alone on this one.

West Brom have put lots of bodies forward but Craig Dawson's stooping header goes wide of the right-hand post.

No luck yet for Albion.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Albion are looking slightly more lively since the break.

Craig Dawson gets forward on the right and initiates the attack, which ends with Claudio Yacob's long-range shot.

Off-target, though, and it sails into the crowd.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

But that's a shot on target for Salomon Rondon. 

He lays the ball off to Chris Brunt, who returns the favour, but his shot on the turn is straight at Kasper Schmeichel.

Progress though.

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Jamie Vardy is off again.

He's in behind Gareth McAuley and Jamie Vardy almost turns provider.

He fizzes the ball across the face of goal and Shinji Okazaki is inches away from connecting with it. 

Not the start Albion wanted.


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Salomon Rondon has not scored in 18 games, and it was his backpass in the first half which led to Jamie Vardy's goal.

The home side need to get players further up the pitch if they want to find the back of the net.


West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Second half is under way at The Hawthorns.

West Brom have now gone 405 minutes without a goal.

That's over six hours of football.

They have 45 minutes to avoid an unwanted club record - their longest goalless run in history.

Don't miss the fantastic five-a-side finale

There are 16 different categories all vying for their individual trophies and you'll be able to catch up with how they do with our live coverage on Sunday, 30 April and Monday, 1 May.

'Vardy was never going to miss that'

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Garth Crooks

Former Spurs striker on Final Score

That was Vardy at his best. I'm no goalkeeper but he has set himself very low which is giving Vardy the instruction to hit it first time. 

If he stays high, it makes the striker think a little more but Vardy, in the form he's in, was never going to miss that. 

Jamie Vardy

HT: West Brom 0-1 Leicester

A poor first half looked to be heading goalless into the break.

But Leicester were clinical following a West Brom mistake.

Shinji Okazaki poached the ball from Salomon Rondo's back-pass before setting Jamie Vardy away and the Englishman slotted home a straightforward finish. He doesn't miss those.

GOAL - Vardy fires Foxes in front

West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Clinical from Jamie Vardy.

Salomon Rondon gives the ball away for West Brom in midfield and Shinji Okazaki's ball forward finds the feet of Vardy, who lifts the ball over Ben Foster.

This game has finally come alive.

GOAL - West Brom 0-1 Leicester

Jamie Vardy

Of course it is. That man Jamie Vardy.

We've done it.

Vardy goal

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

Five minutes left in this first-half.

I'm hearing it's also goalless in the three other 3pm kick-offs.

Can we be the first to break the deadlock?

Marc Albrighton with a free-kick for Leicester but it's headed out of the box by James Morrison.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

Gareth McAuley goes up for a header with Danny Simpson, and his neatly applied head band flies off into the wind.

He continues losing bits of the tape as he chases after the ball - he'll have to leave the field.

Still, an exciting 30 seconds.


West Brom 0-0 Leicester

The crowd have taken to chatting among themselves.

Lots of smiling faces in the stands, I guess you can only laugh at this one.

A true stalemate. 

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

Leicester are on the counter-attack as Marc Albrighton finds Wilfred Ndidi and there are blue shirts everywhere.

Ndidi breaks into the box but he runs out of space and West Brom get the ball clear.

The home side are sitting back slightly now and letting the Foxes come at them.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

The ball finds its way over to the left-hand touchline and Christian Fuchs winds up a long throw.

But it well-dealt with by West Brom as they push forward.

This game needs a goal.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

West Brom have had the better chances so far but Salomon Rondon has looked slightly isolated.

And Jamie Vardy, aside from the first few minutes, has looked very quiet for Leicester.

Just over 30 minutes gone and not much to choose between the sides as Riyad Mahrez trots over to take a corner for the Foxes.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

West Brom are still on the attack.

But Craig Dawson's cross is easily cleared by Danny Simpson, and Marc Albrighton hits the deck after a shove from Salomon Rondon.

Leicester clear the danger.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

West Brom launch a high ball forward through Jonny Evans and Salomon Rondon heads the ball on.

Nacer Chadli with a snap chance inside the box but it's an easy save for Kasper Schmeichel.

West Brom 0-0 Leicester

And now Claudio Yacob is in the book.

These challenges are mounting up.

That's an elbow in the face of Shinji Okazaki.

And he put in a risky tackle on Jamie Vardy earlier too.
