Commentary

That's all from us here and it has been a great pleasure talking you through all of today's action from the Hawthorns. We hope you can join us again very soon. Take care!
Charlie Daniels scored a last-gasp penalty as Bournemouth made it three straight Premier League wins with a 2-1 victory over nine-man West Brom at the Hawthorns. The Baggies had both James McClean and Salomon Rondon dismissed either side of the interval. 
FULL TIME: WEST BROMWICH ALBION 1-2 BOURNEMOUTH

S. Rondón
Red Card
West Bromwich Albion
HE'S OFF! West Brom go down to nine men as Rondon receives his marching orders from the referee. The Baggies striker pushes Gosling and picks up a red card as a result. 
Ritchie drives towards the corner flag looking to see the game out for Bournemouth but Sessegnon steals possession away from him and gets West Brom back on the front foot late on here at the Hawthorns. 
S. Berahino
D. Fletcher
West Bromwich Albion
Pulis makes his third and final change of the game as he takes off Fletcher, who could cost his side a point today after giving away that late penalty on Gosling, and replaces him with Berahino late on. 
The fourth official on the touchline has indicated that a minimum of four minutes is being added onto the second half here at the Hawthorns. West Brom are pushing for a last-gasp equaliser but Bournemouth are putting their bodies on the line now. 
WHAT A CHALLENGE! Rondon tries to race forward with Bournemouth exposed numbers-wise defensively but Cook gets across and makes a superb sliding challenge to see the ball fly out for a throw-in. Superb defending from him. 
C. Daniels
Penalty Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAALLLLL!! It's 1-2 to Bournemouth! Daniels makes no mistake from the spot as he smashes the ball into the top right-hand corner beyond Myhill in front of the away supporters. The visitors take the lead for the second time today. 
PENALTY TO BOURNEMOUTH! Gosling bursts into the penalty area from a driving run through midfield but Fletcher brings him down inside the box. The referee points to the spot straight away. 
Daniels wins Bournemouth a corner as he sees his attempted cross deflected behind by Dawson. Ritchie tries to play in the resulting set play towards a team mate but Sessegnon clears the danger slightly for West Brom. 
SO CLOSE TO GOING IN FRONT! Gardner bends in another fantastic corner towards the back post as Dawson loses his marker and heads just wide of the target when found unmarked inside the penalty area. What a chance that was for West Brom. 
T. Rantie
H. Arter
AFC Bournemouth
Howe makes his third and final change of the game for Bournemouth as he takes off Arter, who was neat and tidy with his passing today, and replaces him with Rantie late on. 
Gosling tries to latch onto a loose ball inside West Brom's half to get Bournemouth forward, but Sessegnon catches his leg and awards the visitors a free-kick in a good position here. Ritchie stands over it now. 
C. Gardner
Assist
West Bromwich Albion
Gardner picks up the assist for McAuley's equaliser. The former Sunderland midfielder picks out his team mate with a cracking corner, whicn was won after Dawson had a cross deflected behind. 
G. McAuley
Goal
West Bromwich Albion
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLL!! It's 1-1 and West Brom are back level! Gardner curls in a lovely corner towards the near post as McAuley gets away from Francis and angles a header into the back of the net. Game on at the Hawthorns!
Evans tries to feed in a team mate with a throw-in down the left-hand side but he gives it straight to Francis, who makes no mistake as he smashes the ball as far away as possible for Bournemouth. 
Y. Kermorgant
G. Murray
AFC Bournemouth
Howe makes his second change of the game this afternoon as he brings on Kermorgant in place of Murray, who put himself about when leading the line for Bournemouth today and played well overall. 
R. Lambert
C. Brunt
West Bromwich Albion
Pulis makes his second change of the game for West Brom this afternoon as he takes off Brunt, who was a threat when whipping in crosses as always, and replaces him with Lambert. 
Gardner clips a diagonal free-kick towards Olsson inside the penalty area but as the West Brom defender manages to knock it down, Ritchie gets to the loose ball first and makes the clearance for Bournemouth. 
CLOSE! West Brom burst forward on the attack as Brunt curls in a lovely cross towards Sessegnon inside the six-yard box, but Cook just gets in front of the attacking midfielder and heads behind for a corner to the hosts. 
M. Pugh
J. Stanislas
AFC Bournemouth
Howe makes his first change of the game as he takes off Stanislas, who was sharp when linking up with Murray in the first half in particular, and replaces him with Pugh just after the hour mark. 
Ritchie wins Bournemouth a free-kick towards the right flank as he gets barged over by Gardner. The Scotland international whips in the set play towards the middle of the box but Evans heads behind for a corner. 
Rondon gets in behind Francis from a Brunt cross but he stabs his effort straight into Boruc's grasp. That allows Bournemouth to then fly up the other end through Smith but the goalscorer fails to pick a team mate out with a low ball into the hosts' box. 
Bournemouth are still in control of the match at the moment, using their man advantage to good effect, but West Brom are standing firm defensively and are using the ball better than they did in the opening period here in the second half. 
Boruc looses his concentration as he misplaces a pass towards Cook and hands West Brom a cheap free-kick inside Bournemouth's half. The Baggies have the chance to push numbers forward now. 
D. Fletcher
Yellow Card
West Bromwich Albion
Fletcher talks his way into the referee's book as he fumes at Stanislas following an earlier collision with Gardner. The Bournemouth winger gets his ankle clipped but the West Brom skipper shouts at him to get up to his feet sooner, receiving a caution as a result. 
Stanislas asks for a free-kick as he collides with Gardner but the referee waves away his appeals. The Bournemouth winger gets his ankle trod on by the West Brom midfielder as he latter tries to play a long ball forward. 
Stanislas curls a corner from the left towards the near post but Myhill punches clear for West Brom. The replay shows that Rondon hits the floor painfully as Murray accidently charges into the back of him when trying to get away from McAuley.
Sessegnon, who has been bright since coming on as a second-half substitute, checks infield inside his own half past Daniels and threads a cracking through ball forward towards Rondon, but Cook clears the ball out for a West Brom throw-in. 
Surman plays a short free-kick towards Ritchie who wins Bournemouth a corner as his driven shot deflects behind off Brunt. Stanislas bends in the resulting set play towards Cook but the defender fails to make good enough contact with the ball at the back stick.
Ritchie collects a pass from Smith just outside the penalty area and as he looks to get a shot away, Evans puts his two hands on the Bournemouth winger's back and sends him tumbling to the floor. Free-kick to the visitors. 
A. Surman
Assist
AFC Bournemouth
Surman grabs the assist for Smith's opener for Bournemouth. The midfielder sprays a cracking cross-field ball from the left flank to the right and his team mate does the rest with a superb finish past Myhill. 
A. Smith
Goal
AFC Bournemouth
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAALLLLL!! It's 0-1 to Bournemouth! Smith chests down a cross-field ball from Surman and drives infield from the right onto his left foot beyond Evans, before he smashes a low shot past Myhill into the bottom corner. 
Stanislas tries to play a one-two with Murray as he drives a through ball forward towards the Bournemouth striker, but Gardner prevents the reverse pass with a good interception. Terrific anticipation from the West Brom man. 
WEST BROM ALMOST TAKE THE LEAD! Dawson plays a long pass forward towards Rondon, who takes advantage of Cook misjudging the flight of the ball by chesting it down and forcing a superb save from Boruc with a powerful shot. Top-drawer goalkeeping. 
S. Sessègnon
J. Morrison
West Bromwich Albion
Pulis makes his first change of the game for West Brom this afternoon as he takes off Morrison, who went close with a half volley in the opening period, and replaces him with Sessegnon. 
Welcome back! West Brom get us under way again for the second half here at the Hawthorns. 
West Brom, for how good they were at staying solid defensively despite having a man sent off, were unable to create much in attack in the first half. Rondon barely had a sniff up top due to Bournemouth's dominance, even before McClean's dismissal. 
The biggest talking point of the first half was the referee's decision to send off McClean following an ugly challenge on Smith. West Brom fans were clearly unhappy at the decision but the Irishman was wild and out of control. 
It's honours even here at the Hawthorns after the first 45 minutes comes to an end. Bournemouth dominated the possession and also the chances for most of the opening period, but they couldn't break the deadlock against a well-organised West Brom side. 
HALF TIME: WEST BROMWICH ALBION 0-0 BOURNEMOUTH
The fourth official on the touchline has indicated that a minimum of two minutes are being added onto the first half here at the Hawthorns. Bournemouth are still piling on the pressure but West Brom are showing great resilience at the back. 
JUST WIDE OF THE NEAR POST! It's great play again from Bournemouth as Stanislas receives a pass from Daniels down the left flank and crosses towards Ritchie, who just fails to find the bottom corner with a low header inside the penalty area. Unlucky. 
Surman picks up the ball from Daniels in the middle of the park and tries to play in Smith inside the penalty area, but Brunt cancels out his looped pass with a good headed clearance for West Brom. 
Daniels continues to cause West Brom's backline all sorts of problems as he plays a one-two with Murray down the left and bursts into the box, but as Olsson slides in towards the Bournemouth left-back, that puts him off getting a shot away. Goal kick to the Baggies. 
J. Evans
Yellow Card
West Bromwich Albion
Evans gets his name taken by the referee as he brings down Gosling. The Bournemouth midfielder tries to surge forward into West Brom's half but he gets clipped from behind by the former Manchester United man, who receives a caution as a result. 
JUST OVER! Daniels steams forward into the West Brom penalty area and powers a shot towards goal, but it flies over the crossbar and into the stands behind Myhill's goal. Bournemouth can smell blood now the hosts are down to 10 men. 
Smith gets greeted by boos every time he receives the ball now from the West Brom supporters after McClean's sending off. The Bournemouth full-back gets played in by Ritchie inside the penalty area, but Olsson steals possession off him and makes a clearance. 
J. McClean
Red Card
West Bromwich Albion
HE'S OFF! McClean receives his marching orders as he dives in recklessly on Smith. The West Brom winger gets wound up after losing possession to the Bournemouth man earlier and lunges in on him straight afterwards. 
Stanislas dips inside from the left past Dawson but as he uses Gardner as a target to bend a cross around towards Murray, his ball towards the box carries too much weight and goes into the arms of Myhill. 
Pulis cuts a frustrated figure on the touchline as his side continue to offer little threat when they move into Bournemouth's half so far. The visitors are winning possession back rapidly when they lose it, ensuring West Brom can't build any attacks. 
McAuley gets hold of the ball after a misplaced Bournemouth throw-in but he cheaply blasts a pass out towards Rondon bounds for a goal kick to the visitors. West Brom are clearly second best at the moment. 
Ritchie gives the ball away down the right and that allows McClean the chance to break forward on the counter attack. But as the West Brom man looks to get a head of steam, Smith brings him down and the referee awards the hosts a free-kick. 
Francis feeds a through ball towards Murray who plays a quick, first-time flicked pass around Olsson towards an onrushing Gosling, but McAuley smells the danger and clears the danger for a Bournemouth throw-in. Good defending from him. 
It's still all Bournemouth at the moment as they play their way out from the back confidently following a West Brom set play. Surman dictates their approach superbly just in front of his side's two centre backs. 
Gardner bends in a free-kick from the right towards Olsson at the back stick but the gangly West Brom defender fails to make contact with the cross. Brunt keeps the hosts in possession down to the left-hand side. 
Ritchie chests down a cross-field switch from Stanislas and as he dips infield from the flank, he plays a reverse pass down the line to Smith but the Bournemouth full-back's ball in flies into Myhill's arms comfortably. 
Rondon gets towards the byline and scoops a cross in towards the penalty area but Cook heads away the ball. As Fletcher latches onto the spillage, he misplaces a pass straight into the path of Arter and sets up a Bournemouth breakaway. 
It's delightful passing and moving from Bournemouth as they interchange neatly down the right-hand side. Ritchie collects a pass from Smith and feeds in Gosling, but the central midfielder puts too much height on his cross into the box and hands the hosts a goal kick. 
Daniels powers forward past Dawson again and as he opens up his body to shoot, Olsson just about deflects his effort behind for a Bournemouth corner. Ritchie bends in the resulting set play towards the middle of the box but Brunt heads away the danger. 
Bournemouth, as expected, have had the lion's share of possession so far as West Brom look to remain compact and deny them space. Howe's men have been particularly impressive when they have lost the ball, pressing quickly to win it back. 
Gosling presses Fletcher in the middle of the park and sets up a Bournemouth counter attack through Stanislas, who stabs a pass through towards Murray but the Bournemouth forward sees his shot towards goal deflected behind by McAuley. 
Stanislas curls in the resulting free-kick from the left-hand side towards the middle of the penalty area, but Myhill rushes off his line and makes the save with a consummate ease for West Brom. 
Daniels tries to maraud forward down the left-hand side but Gardner pulls him back and hands Bournemouth a free-kick as a result. Stanislas stands over the ball at the moment as the visitors pile men forward for the set play. 
JUST WIDE! West Brom fly straight up the other end and have a chance of their own as Morrison scoops the ball past Cook inside Bournemouth's half and smashes a lofted effort just wide of the far post from distance. What a goal that would have been. 
EARLY SAVE! Stanislas sets up a one-two with Murray just outside the penalty area and as he receives the reverse pass from the Bournemouth striker, he drives a shot towards goal which Myhill parries away well. 
Bournemouth get us under way here at the Hawthorns. The man in charge of the cards for today's encounter is Mike Dean. 
We are hearing that there has been a last minute change in the Bournemouth starting lineup for today's game. Joshua King has dropped out after picking up an injury during the pre-match warm-up and coming into the first eleven in his place is Glenn Murray. 
Both sets of players are now stripped and raring to go as they leave the tunnel and enter onto the field here in the Midlands. We are just moments away from seeing the action start to unfold.
