Villa will be disappointed but must take something from the performance and they're out of the bottom three. If they play like that first half for the rest of the season they'll be way clear of the drop.
its cleared, and now offside is given... looks as though this will end honours even - Villa will climb out of the relegation places
And another chance goes begging, Brunt puts the ball in and Odemwingie should have done better with the header
Jordan Jeffrey : Waiting on a goal from west brom for £270 please! Come on Baggies >>>>Congratulations!!
Terrible defending although the visitors claim a foul - A corner is headed back across by McAulay to Odemwingie who finally has his goal
What a miss from Odemwingie, 12 yards out, central position, hardly any pressure - almost out of the Stadium
Just gone a bit quiet in the last few minutes. But maybe WBA are gathering themselves for a big finish. Villa happy to hang on and who can blame them?!
Think Odemwingie's got lead in his boots!, chance of a cross there but it looked as though the person he spotted was in row C on the far side!!
Suddenly its all WBA.. appeals for handball are turned away, but the clearance is coming straight back... another roar from the crowd as Jones goes over in the area, but there was never going to be a penalty there
Dorrans deflected shot gives WBA a corner... McAulay meets it but its blocked on the line.. eventually Morrison powers an effort over the bar... can they get the equaliser
Benteke's strength wins another corner for Villa.... good delivery from Bannan but West Brom win it in the air
Warren: Villa looking the best I've seen them all season - really notice the difference with concrete Ron back in the Captains roll - we've really missed leadership recently - come on Villa hold it together in the second
This second half is end-to-end... next goal crucial but will Villa start to sit back - must be tempting... another Yellow card here, this time for Dorrans
And Villa's latest break brings a corner.. westwood to N'Zogbia, it's blocked.. the second corner is cleared for a break and that's ended illegally by Lowton... yellow card
Immediately at the other end Lukaku's strength gets him through 2 challenges but he's then dispossessed and to the other end we go....
Agbonlahor gets through and he has two men in support - he opts to go alone...maybe he should've squared it, but his shot is saved and it comes out kindly for WBA
Jason - Villa - Keep it up, we need the 3 points badly today and its about time N'zogbia showed us wat he can do... been very disapointed with him since he arrived and i know he is a class player. Come on me babbys - villa till i die
dean jones - nice to see us score 2 goals in a game. Gotta keep this lead now, another 100% 2nd half, job done and 3pts
Colin in Ireland: Great half from the Villa lads,Vlaar's making a clear difference to the defence.I'd still like to see a third goal go in though!!
Stevie and Colin: Quality from Benteke glad to see n'zogbia playing better. Still concerned Villa don't play a formation with wingers !!
N'Zogbia has led the Baggies a merry dance in the first half - when you see Villa play like that you wonder why they are languishing at the bottom of the table - great 45 for Lambert's side. But can they keep it up?? let me know @1rebs on twitter
What do you think though??? Have Villa done enough? will West Brom come back into it? who's impressed you in that opening half? E-mail me now firstname.lastname@example.org or tweet me @1rebs
Powerful shot by Chris Brunt as WBA try to halve the deficit before half time, but its too close to the keeper - if WBA can get the next goal, this could get interesting
Lukaku has a glimpse of an opening but the blocked shot is prevented from going for a corner by Guzan
and it could and should have been three as N'Zogbia again breaks clear, threads it inside but the shot is blocked by Foster
Nice attack from WBA as they finally put some passes together, ends with a good strike from Dorrans just wide... a bit of encouragement for the Hawthorns crowd who have gone very quiet
West Brom need to get some possession... but a frustrated shot in anger by Dorrans threatens the Villa fans behind the goal more than the net
Villa have another corner through a good run from N'zogbia. Villa getting a lot of joy down their left hand side... the corner comes in and Vlaar gets a glancing header on it, but its not enough contact.
Half way through the first half and its obvious which team NEEDS a result and which team would just like one. Desparation from Villa really
Handbags here between Agbonlahor and Olsson after Agbonlahor claims handball against the WBA defender... the referee pulls the two captains together to calm the situation down
Mick Burton- I can't understand why Lambert never plays his strongest side, we badly need some points.
good save there as the ball bobbles around the box - eventually Lukaku tries an overhead but Guzan clutches it
That corner came to nothing but Villa continuing to look lively. But a break from WBA leads to a corner at the other end - bright start here.. looks like goals in the game
Benteke with his back to goal, shifts it, turns and smacks it into the corner from around 20-yards... fantastic goal!
Jonathan: Think Villa are down, why would you not play Bent when he will score 18 goals a season...we need goals
Dangerous ball in from Lukaku, but strong goalkeeping from Guzan under pressure - he clings onto the ball
WBA eventually take the corner, but it comes to nothing other than a throw in on the far side... which Villa clear
First attempt on goal is from Lukaku, blocked for a corner... but it looks as though Baker may have pulled a hamstring - not the start Villa needed
Ok we're underway here at the Hawthorns, first ball into the box results in a foul and free kick to West Brom
So Villa start tonight's game second from bottom of the table after Reading's win. But they can still get out with a win here.
Chris þ: Can't see past West Brom for this Match. I reckon Villa are for relegation this season. Chris, Liverpool Fan
