The Baggies remain clear of West Ham and Sunderland, however manager Gary Megson will be disappointed his side were not able to close the gap on Bolton.
Following a tight first half in which Jason Koumas and Steed Malbranque went close The Cottagers burst into life in the second with three goals in a five minute spell.
Firstly Louis Saha headed home a pin-point Malbranque cross from the left and just moments later Pierre Wome thundered home a superb drive from 35-yards to double their advantage.
With The Baggies still reeling Jean Tigana's side put the final nail in the coffin when Malbranque converted from the spot, after Neil Clement fouled Saha in the box.
