  21. 75

  31. 62

    First change and Surman is replaced by Wes Hoolahan.

  32. 60

    Long breaks into the box for West Brom, but he is eased off the ball by Naughton - good defending.

  33. 59

    Good effort from Thomas for West Brom. Looking for the curler into top-corner, but just over.

    West Brom finishing the half the better, with Dorrans seeing plenty of the ball and making things tick.

  49. 40

    Wonderful effort from Dorrans as he unleashes one from 25-yards - Rudd does well to even see it as the ball thunders off the post and away. It comes back for Dorrans and goes for goal, this time Rudd saves it, but it spills to Long but he can't convert and Norwich clear.

  50. 39

    Martin goes down under Olsson challenge in the box, was contact nothing given.

    Great save from young Rudd. Mulumbu threads ball through the Odemwingie but the Nigerian can get his second as the Norwich keeper saves with his legs. Should be 2-0.

    Tierney ball into box is met by Holt, but it goes for a corner off Tamas. Corner comes in from Bennett, and West Brom clear again.

    Very good chance for Norwich wasted. Surman feeds Tierney down the left, he finds an unmarked Bennett in the box - but he scoops it over the bar.

  57. 28

    Great play from Mulumbu in midfield, he collects the ball - shrugs of challenges from Holt and Bennett before going for goal, but his shot is just wide.

  58. 24

    West Brom look to have gone for the direct approach today, a lot of long balls over the top looking for the runs of Odemwingie and Long.

  59. 23

    Nice play from West Brom, they string a number of passes across the field for Shorey to break, he finds Thomas but his pull back is cut out by Kyle Naughton.

  60. 21

    Holt goes down in the box, off-the-ball after clash with Olsson - home fans want a penalty but Mark Halsey is having none of it. But when ball goes out he gives the pair a lecture.

  61. 20

    Norwich counter this time and Holt feeds Surman on the edge of the box, but his shot is straight at Ben Foster.

  62. 20

    Odemwingie breaks from the left wing, comes inside and unleashes a thunderous drive but Leon Barnett makes a good block.

  63. 19

    Surman and Marc Tierney working well down the left, the latter crosses for Chris Martin in the box - but he wants too much time on the ball and West Brom's defence close him down and clear.

  64. 17

    Norwich free-kick 40-yards out, Johnson with a chance to put it into the box - which he does but Olsson is there again to clear.

  65. 16

    First booking comes and it is for Scharner sliding in on Johnson.

  66. 14

    West Brom get away on a counter attack as Odemwingie feeds Jerome Thomas down the right, his cut back looks for Long - but Rudd comes to make the interception.

  67. 12

    Rudd slices a clearance out in his own half - the England Under-21 man continues to look nervous on his full Premier League debut.

  68. 11

    Bennett again gets a nice cross into the box and finds Surman breaking into the box, but his header sails wide.

  69. 9

    Norwich putting some pressure on now and Johnson has a volleyed opportunity in the box from Elliott Bennett's cross but he gets it all wrong.

  70. 8

    Good chance for Norwich, as Surman plays one-two with Holt - the former Southampton breaks into the box and pulls it back for his captain who side foots it wide. Should have hit the target.

  71. 8

    Norwich enjoying possession now with West Brom happy to invite them on with Scharner and Mulumbu sitting deep.

  72. 6

    Rudd is off his line quick to clear ball as Shane Long flicks it on looking for Odemwingie.

  73. 5

    Norwich on the attack straight away, Bradley Johnson crosses deep into the box - but Jonas Olsson is there to head clear.

  74. 3

    GOAL - PETER ODEMWINGIE - Long ball over the top from Nicky Shorey and Richie De Laet fails to deal with it and Odemwingie is through to poke the ball past Rudd. Shocking defending.

  75. 1

    West Brom on the attack early as Steven Reid swings one into the box and young Declan Rudd goes walkabout and is almost caught out by Shane Long. But the linesman has his flag up - nervy opening from Norwich keeper.

  76. 1

    West Brom get us under way here kicking from left to right.

  77. Minute's silence is immaculately observed.

  78. Applause from everyone in memory of Academy player Blake Melbourne, which is followed by a minute's silence for the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

  79. The two teams are making their way out...

  80. A lot asking for my opinion - I can't see anything other than a West Brom win to be honest, I look at the starting XIs and just think the Baggies look stronger in every department.

  81. No keeper on the bench for Norwich today.

  82. Norwich team news and Wes Hoolahan finds himself on the bench today with Andrew Surman coming in.

  83. West Brom players will wear black armbands today in memory of Academy player Blake Melbourne, who died yesterday.

  84. First pieces of team news coming out, and skipper Chris Brunt has been dropped to the bench by West Brom with Paul Scharner pushing into midfield. Shane Long starts with Peter Odemwingie.

  85. Whilst we wait for the team news, why no visit our friends at SkyBet for a little flutter. The odds at the moment are Norwich 13/8 Draw 9/4 West Brom 13/8.
