  1. Have a good night

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    This is where I leave you. Cheers for you company this evening.

    The Championship promotion race is proving fascinating yet again. West Brom have picked up just four points from their past six league games after collecting 22 in their previous eight. It's all to play for...

    We'll see you again tomorrow. G'night.

  2. How it stands at the bottom

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke


    Stoke have created a mini bit of breathing space between themselves and the bottom three. Just how valuable is that four-point cushion?

  3. Get Involved


    Kev Whadcoat: Nobody mentioning Forest... We're just hitting form at the right time... If we win on Wednesday, we're only 2 points off Leeds..

  4. Baggies miss chance to extend lead

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke


    Many people will see this as an enormous missed opportunity for West Brom. A win tonight would have put eight points between them and third-placed Fulham. But it wasn't to be for Slaven Bilic's men this evening. They stay just a point above Leeds.

  5. Allen plays down links with other clubs

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Asked about his future, amid speculation about interest from other clubs in this January transfer window, Joe Allen adds:

    "There's nothing as far as I'm concerned.

    "There's a big job to do here at Stoke City, halfway through the season. Hopefully this is the start of something here."

  6. Reaction - Allen on Stoke 'resilience'

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Stoke midfielder Joe Allen adds to Sky Sports:

    "Fair play, bodies on the line, it was that type of game.

    "It wasn't pretty at times. We showed resilience to keep them at bay. It's a big win for us.

    "Results went for us this weekend and it was a great opportunity for us to try and capitalise on that."

  7. This is massive - Batth

    FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Stoke's Danny Batth tells Sky Sports:

    "Since the new manager has come in we have really knuckled down. We look more organised and I think you can see what it means to us. This is massive for the club.

    "It means a lot to win here. More importantly, we needed the points."

  8. Get Involved via #bbcefl

    HT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    West Brom v Stoke

    Does anyone want to go up automatically?!

    Both West Bromwich Albion and Leeds United have been on wretched runs and slowly but surely the chasing pack are reeling them in.

    Who's going to get those top two spots? Let us know via #bbcefl on Twitter.

  9. FT: West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    West Brom miss the chance to go four points clear at the top and eight points clear of Fulham in third. Instead, it remains very tight at the top.

    Stoke climb four points clear of the drop zone. It's a big, big result for them.


    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    What a win for Michael O'Neill's Stoke City!

  11. CLOSE!

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    The ball drops to Matheus Pereira in the area and he scuffs his shot over the bar... That might be that.

  12. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    We're in to the final 60 seconds.

    If West Brom are going to pull a rabbit out of the hat here they have left it very, very late.

  13. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Danny Batth has just headed a cross clear for roughly the 6,000th time tonight. Fair play.

  14. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    West Brom v Stoke

    Stoke keeper Jack Butland does well again to come out and claim a cross with both hands and can now eat away at the clock a little bit more...

  15. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Five minutes have been added on. FIVE minutes, people.

    Stoke fans... And Leeds fans... Fulham and Brentford fans, how nervous are you?

  16. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    This has been a textbook away performance from Stoke. They've defended brilliantly after grabbing an early goal on the counter.

    If they can keep it up for another minute plus stoppage time, this'll be their eighth win of the season, six of which will have come since Michael O'Neill's November arrival. Impact.

  17. SUBSTITUTION (Stoke)

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Stoke's final change sees Tom Ince - who got the assist for the goal in the ninth minute - go off and be replaced by Nathan Collins, who will help out at the back.

  18. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    Five minutes to go now... Will Stoke hold on? Let's have a poll...

    Thumbs up for yes, thumbs down for no!

  19. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    The hosts win back-to-back corners but nothing comes of them as Jack Butland claims the second in the air.

  20. Post update

    West Brom 0-1 Stoke

    West Brom v Stoke

    Meanwhile, the Baggies still haven't really tested Jack Butland... Nine minutes to go.
