Cédric gets clear down the left channel and looks to pick out Guido Carrillo in a brilliant central position. He doesn't get his cross right, though, and sends it far too high for the forward.
McCarthy keeps the lead intact
A scramble near the goal-line from an Albion corner ends with McCarthy making a fine save to turn the ball away as it was nodded goalwards.

McCarthy denies Rodriguez!
A slip from Wesley Hoedt allows Jay Rodriguez a great sight of goal, but Alex McCarthy dives to his left to get a slight touch on it. From the resulting corner, McCarthy is again called into action, tipping Craig Dawson's bouncing header over, before Saints clear the next delivery.

Nathan Redmond breaks away down the left and plays a neat ball inside to Dušan Tadić, but just as he is about to shoot from inside the area Jonny Evans slides in to divert the ball behind.

Saints go close again!
Another ball into the area causes issues for West Brom, with Guido Carrillo nearly getting on the end of it, before Pierre-Emile Højbjerg eventually does from a tight angle, but his low strike is cleared off the line.
Dawson heads over for Albion
After Saints clear Matt Phillips's corner, Albion loft the ball back into the area, with Craig Dawson rising highest to meet it a few yards out, but he heads up and over the bar.
Chance for West Brom
Salomon Rondon gets a sight of goal with a free-kick from 25 yards, but it hits the Saints was and loops behind for a corner.
Superb work from Stephens

HOEDT FIRES SAINTS IN FRONT!

Wesley Hoedt (11’) | 0 – 1
