FULL TIME. Aston Villa 1 West Brom 1.
Yellow card for Tamas for a cynical tackle on N'Zogbia. I think that's called 'taking one for the team'.
GOAL FOR VILLA - BENT SCORES!
West Brom, not to be outdone, make a change themselves as the excellent Long comes off for Lukaku.
Lambert makes his third change of the game as Bannan comes on to replace Delph.
Benteke comes off and a huge ovation welcomes Bent on to the pitch.
Albrighton is replaced by N'Zogbia in a Villa change.
GOAL FOR WEST BROM - LONG!
A change from the break to report sees Tamas emerge for the injured Jones.
Del Finn writes: 'I fear Lambert made a mistake leaving out Bent. If Villa are too defensive in the second half all they're really achieving is giving West Brom more space, and West Brom aren't the kind of team to waste opportunities.'
West Brom started lively but Villa eventually took control of the half without ever making their possession count. Send your second half predictions to email@example.com or @JWoodfield365
HALF TIME. Aston Villa 0 West Brom 0.
One minute's added time to be played.
That's Brunt's game over as Dorrans comes on to replace the stricken West Brom midfielder.
Delph slides in on Brunt and picks up a booking for his efforts.
Villa fan Brian Cook writes: 'This is a brave decision to leave DB out but I admire Paul Lambert's decisions. I would like a Villa win but fear a draw.'
Tony McIntyre is backing the away victory this afternoon. He writes: 'Villa have been poor at home season to date and I can see West Brom winning this 3-1 with a hat-trick from Long.'
In a surprise decision from Villa boss Paul Lambert, club record signing Darren Bent is benched for today's Midlands derby, with Gabby Agbonlahor restored to the first team after his goalscoring exploits at the Etihad Stadium midweek. The Villa striker can be backed at 7/1 with Sky Bet to find the net first this afternoon.
