  1. A thoroughly entertaining derby ends all-square, as Villa recover from two-down to earn a point. Thanks for following the game with me this evening. Stay here for report, reaction and much more from The Hawthorns.

  2. 90+3

    Benteke heads away Amalfitano's delivery and the final whistle is blown.

  3. 90+3

    West Brom have a corner with seconds remaining...

  4. 90+1

    Guzan comes to collect Reid's cross to relieve the pressure on Villa.

  5. 90

    Three minutes of added time and West Brom remain on the attack.

  6. 89

    West Brom aren't content to settle for a point. Amalfitano, though, wastes possession in an advanced position on the right.

  7. 86

    Villa's Clark goes in the book for wrestling with Anichebe.

  8. 85

    Benteke does brilliantly to flick the ball into Weimann's path but, instead of driving towards the edge of the box, the Villa substitute opts to shoot from close to 30 yards and blasts way off target.

  9. 82

    A positive change for West Brom: Left-back Popov off; striker Anichebe on.

  10. 79

    West Brom are rattled and Villa smell blood. The hosts are forced into the passing the ball back through the lines before Myhill eventually hooks his long clearance straight out of play. Agbonlahor then wins a header on the edge of the box to put in Benteke, but the Villa striker was stood offside.

  11. 76

    Popov's poor headed clearance is pounced upon by Westwood, who uses a neat first touch to create enough space to unleash an unstoppable, arcing drive from outside the box. A wonderful strike and Villa are level.

  12. 76


  13. 74

    Long ignores the overlapping Brunt to instead drive a shot from the corner of the box straight into the grasp of Guzan. Brunt is furious and he probably has good reason to be.

  14. 73

    Morrison comes off the West Brom bench to replace Sessegnon.

  15. 70

    The Villa fans are back in fine voice once more, declaring themselves 'the pride of Birmingham'. They have 20 minutes to get themselves level with West Brom and a throw-in in line with the edge of the box. Benteke, though, gifts the ball back to Albion.

  16. 67

    Weimann headed Bacuna's cross into the path of El Ahmadi, who volleyed past Myhill from close range. Game on!

  17. 67


  18. 66

    Benteke wins the second ball after his own header on but his volley from the edge of the box bounces harmlessly into the arms of Myhill.

  19. 64

    Villa, though, switch off again and allow Amalfitano to drift into their box from the left. His pull-back finds Sessegnon, but the forward is careless with his finish, which drifts over from close range.

  20. 62

    Villa, as you might expect after the changes, are enjoying a spell of pressure, but the West Brom back four are standing firm on the edge of their box.
