A mere spectator at times, but made two first-rate stops during a great spell for the visitors, first from Lukaku low to his left and then a brave interception to deny Fortune.
Got forward and supported Lennon well and had very little to do defensively during the game, nullifying what threat Dorrans provided well.
Still seems somewhat rusty defensively, but his deflected effort handed the hosts the lead and cleared off the line from a McAuley header late on.
Looked relatively unflustered during the first half and had a great chance which he blazed over the bar, but seemed vulnerable whenever put on the back foot.
Calm in possession after being handed a surprise start and the captain's armband for the afternoon. Seemed to panic after the introduction of the Belgian target man Lukaku.

Passed the ball as well as anyone on the pitch, switching the play effortlessly at times, making the most of his central support role until he was subbed.
A bustling presence in midfield and bullied Yacob and Mulumbu at times. Full of running, and comfortable on the ball.
An excellent, adventurous display in the opening period gave way to a frustrating one in the second, as his delivery from wide areas often failed to find a white shirt.
Tidy on the ball as he patrolled just in front of his back four, helping to provide a platform for the team's more creative players further upfield.
The team's main attacking threat throughout but was handed the task of providing the majority of their cutting edge. Was guilty of wandering inside in search of the ball as the game wore on.
Still looks to be struggling with the lone role up front and looked uncomfortable at holding the play up, snapping at whatever half-chances came his way. Had a goal correctly disallowed for offside.
Sharp save from Assou-Ekotto's free-kick in the second half and dealt well with whatever came his way. Unlucky for the goal which took a huge deflection, wrong-footing him in the process.
Dealt well with the threat of Defoe, out-muscling him off the ball and marshaling a dogged and determined backline superbly.
In the same vein as his center-half partner, while not quite as accomplished either on the floor or in the tackle, he more than held his own. Had a header hit the bar in the final few minutes as they chased an equalizer.
Beaten time and time again for pace on the left when put up against both Lennon and Walker.
Given a torrid time by Bale out on the right. Against that sort of pace, you either have to get tight to the winger or be decisive when they run at you, but Reid did neither.
Wasteful in possession and offered little to no protection for Ridgewell down the left flank. The game-defining goal inadvertently came through his deflection before he was hauled off.
A poor clearance led to Vertonghen's great early chance in the first half, but otherwise another decent showing and he looks to have settled quickly to life in the top flight.
Appeared to lack a clearly defined role in the side, but improved as the game wore on, setting up Fortune with a neat through ball for a decent chance, before netting the equalizer in the dying moments, showing fantastic composure.
Another battling display, even if he did not get involved quite as much as he would have liked to. The box-to-box midfielder played a large part in their second-half resurgence.
Looked sharp whenever the ball went near him on the right wing, but often opted for the pass inside rather than take Assou-Ekotto on. Came alive after the break, but lacks a clinical touch to his natural game.
Cut an isolated figure throughout, even if he put in a decent shift trying to close down the space between the two center-backs whenever they were on the ball.
Came on just after the goal and showed his typical energy in the middle, even if he failed to get his foot on the ball for the most part.
The goal came after his corner was cleared by the West Brom back four to the edge of the box for Assou-Ekotto to drive the ball home. Showed his penchant for intelligent forward running at times.
His physical approach gave both Olsson and McAuley something to think about as the game started to open up, but failed to get himself involved enough.
