FT: West Brom 0-0 Newcastle
Both sides had chances to win the game, but a lack of cutting edge from either team sees West Brom and Newcastle share the spoils.
Best chance of the half for the visitors...
He really should do better there!
HT: West Brom 0-0 Newcastle
Newcastle started the brighter, but in the final 15 minutes of the half, West Brom came into their own and looked the most threatening.
A huge second half coming up!
Joelinton gets through on goal, but instead of shooting, he tries to square it to Fraser - but Bartley gets a vital block on the ball to stop an almost certain goal!
The teams are out!
VAVEL arrive at The Hawthorns...

- Newcastle have beaten West Brom in the last two fixtures between the two sides.
Miguel Almiron gave The Magpies the lead after just 19 seconds, but Darnell Furlong's strike on the 50 minute mark left the two sides level until eight minutes from time when Dwight Gayle's header condemned his former club to defeat in the North East.

Team news - West Brom
Newcastle looking for a return to winning ways
Steve Bruce's side undoubtedly head into their biggest game of the season fresh off a 1-1 draw with Wolves, meaning they have only won two of their last 17 games.
Three points in the West Midlands tomorrow however will give them a six point buffer from 18th placed Fulham.
West Brom seeking a much-needed victory
A win against 17th placed Newcastle tomorrow would move them within six points from safety.
The kick-off is scheduled at 12:00 BST.
My name is Harry Roy and I'll be your host for this game.
