  1. The final whistle goes and Fulham run out deserved 3-0 winners. West Brom fought hard in the second period but the damage was done in the first half when Berbatov scored twice and Odemwingie was sent off.

  2. 90+1

    Duff is given a tremendous ovation as he goes off to be replaced by youngster Smith for the final couple of minutes.

  3. 90

    Mulumbu's shot from the edge of the area takes a deflection and goes behind for a corner.

  4. 89

    GOAL Sidwell puts the icing on the cake for Fulham with a volley from close range after Foster had saved from Kasami and the ball looped up for Rodallega to head against the crossbar.

  5. 87

    Foster parries away a ferocious long-range strike from Rodallega and Kasami drags the rebound wide from a tight angle.

  6. 86

    Jones is presented with perhaps West Brom's best chance of the afternoon as he latches on to a free-kick at the back post, but he cannot connect powerfully with his shot and Schwarzer makes a solid stop.

  7. 84

    Fulham manager Jol makes his first change, bringing on Kasami for Kacaniklic for the closing stages.

  8. 83

    Riether goes down in the area under pressure from Brunt but the referee waves play on and West Brom's players are not happy with the Fulham full-back as they think he dived.

  9. 81

    Berbatov is denied by a smart stop from Foster after being picked out by a clever pass from Baird.

  10. 80

    Fulham are making West Brom chase shadows with a period of sustained possession, and their fans are loving the way the Baggies are being toyed with.

  11. 78

    Rodallega has not quite got his radar right today despite plenty of hard work, as he smashes a volley high and wide after setting himself up well with a skilful first touch.

  12. 76

    West Brom make their third and final change, replacing Yacob with another summer signing in Rosenberg.

  13. 75

    The ten men of West Brom are having to work hard to repel Fulham and they are beginning to look tired, with the home team applying some serious pressure.

  14. 74

    Foster is at the centre of the action at the moment as he dives to his left to palm away another deflected shot, this time from Rodallega after a fine run from Duff.

  15. 72

    This is an even better save from Foster and it is instinctive stuff as he somehow reacts to Duff's long-range shot taking a wicked deflection to throw up his left hand and turn the ball over the bar.

  16. 70

    Foster pulls off a decent stop from Sidwell's swerving 25-yard strike before quickly getting up to gather the rebound before Duff can pounce.

  17. 69

    West Brom are beginning to commit a few men forward in an effort to find a way back into this game, and Lukaku is proving to be a handful as he wins a corner.

  18. 67

    Lukaku has a shot from inside the area half-blocked by a couple of defenders, taking the pace off the ball and allowing Schwarzer to make a comfortable save.

  19. 65

    Fulham have been restricted to long shots from distance in the second half and Duff's effort here is deflected wide for a corner.

  20. 63

    Brunt takes the corner himself and drills it low, nearly taking Schwarzer by surprise as it canons into the outside of the post.
