Wow! Thanks for all your comments today folks. Don't forget, you can always follow me on Twitter: @RazMirza to send me your views so speak to you all soon!
What a dramatic conclusion at The Hawthorns. Pepe Mel and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shook hands in disbelief after two stoppage time goals. Albion went 2-0 up before Cardiff fought back to level. Then, deep in added time the hosts thought they had won the game through Thievy's close-range finish, but the Bluebirds launched a last-ditch attack and 19-year-old Mats Moller Daehli fired home to grab a point.
NO ... WHAT A FINISH! Mats Moller Daehli scores his first Cardiff goal with the last kick of the game to salvage a quite dramatic point at The Hawthorns. Andrew Taylor knocks the ball back to the 19-year-old who fires into the roof of the net.
SURELY THE WINNER! Thievy bundles the ball home at the near post to hand Albion the lead deep, deep in stoppage time.
Whittingham scored the winner against Albion earlier in the season too. James Morrison's cross is collected by David Marshall.
Peter Whittingham has scored in his last three league appearances against West Brom for Cardiff and he comes on for the injured Gary Medel.
Mats Moller Daehli goes over with a head injury. That means there will be more added time at the end of this game.
Saido Berahino and Kevin Theophile-Catherine are involved in a nasty looking clash, but they're big boys and are soon back on their feet.
Mats Moller Daehli spots a gap and runs straight through. However, his decision making lets him down as he opts to go for goal from an acute angle allowing Ben Foster to make the save.
The Cardiff supporters are making a hell of a noise at The Hawthorns. City are unbeaten in their last five league meetings with the Baggies (W2 D3 L0).
A victory for Cardiff would put them level on points with their hosts, however, an inferior goal difference would see them likely stay in the relegation zone. They're the team looking most likely to snatch this!
WE'RE LEVEL! Steven Caulker climbs above two West Brom defenders to head Gary Medel's free-kick into the far corner. Magnificent header! That's the skipper's fifth goal of the season. What a game he's had today.
Pepe Mel makes a change by sending on Saido Berahino, who hasn't scored since New Years' Day against Newcastle, for goalscorer Morgan Amalfitano.
Since February the Premier League newcomers have lost six of their last nine league games as they are currently placed 19 - three points adrift of safety. They will feel the need to pick up at least a point from this clash.
Graham Dorrans is the first player to go into Michael Oliver's book after a late slidign challenge on Kevin Theophile-Catherine.
Steven Caulker makes a vital block after Albion played the ball out of the back quite superbly, caressing it along the floor.
Jordon Mutch's attempt is well blocked by Morgan Amalfitano. The Cardiff pressure is mounting and Wilfried Zaha is the main man behind much of the attacking play.
Youssouf Mulumbu clearly pulls Wilfried Zaha back but referee Michael Oliver does not see the incident which occured outside the box.
Albion boss Pepe Mel was jumping up and down showing so much emotion after Albion missed that chance to make it 3-1.
GREAT SAVE! David Marshall makes himself big to make a fine save to deny Matej Vydra. Kevin Theophile-Catherine then gets back to make an important block.
JUST WIDE! Youssouf Mulumbu's low attempt from the edge of the area hits Craig Dawson and flies just wide of the far post.
So, the Bluebirds are going for it with Wilfried Zaha and Mats Moller Daehli on for the visitors. Liam Ridgewell's cross deflects away for a corner.
The 19-year-old Mats Moller Daehli has replaced Aron Gunnarsson as Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes his second change of the match.

West Brom are now 2/9 to claim victory with our friends @Skybet, who make Cardiff 12/1 and the draw 4/1. I went for a 2-2 draw before the game. That scoreline was priced at 14/1 and is now just 5/1. Head now to SKYBET to place your bets on this match.
Great opening 45 minutes of action at The Hawthorns. We've had everything in this relegation six-pointer and we still have the second half to come! Albion were two up in 10 minutes. Morgan Amalfitano's improvised lob from the right looped over David Marshall for the opening goal after one minute and 45 seconds before Graham Dorrans bagged a second for the Baggies with a close-range finish. It was the Scotland international's first goal in a year. Jordon Mutch's cross-cum-shot has given Cardiff hope.
Graham Dorrans curls his right-footer harmlessly wide of the target. That was a little bit disappointing!
Even though they were beaten 6-3 at home by title-chasing Liverpool last weekend, there was enough quality in that performance to suggest Cardiff have a fighting chance of avoiding the drop. They're back in this one after that fluke goal by Jordon Mutch and looking a threat on the break.
Youssouf Mulumbu, who netted the winner at Swansea City recently, has a go from long-range. However, David Marshall gets his body behind the ball and makes a comfortable save.
Fabio looks to have picked up an early injury and he is replaced by Manchester United loanee Wilfried Zaha.
Morgan Amalfitano claims his is pulled down for a penalty. Referee Michael Oliver sees it otherwise and waves play to continue.
The Welsh side have now scored as many goals (8) in their last four Premier League matches as they had managed in the previous 12.
CARDIFF PULL ONE BACK! Jordon Mutch cuts inside just outside the box and definitely looks to find a cross with his left peg, but the ball curls over and beyond Ben Foster into the far corner. Another bizarre goal! That's the midfielder's seventh goal of the season.
Graham Dorrans' cross is a good one and Albion keep the pressure on. There seems to be complete panic in the Cardiff backline every time the ball is played in.
Andrew Taylor is pressed by full-back Steven Reid at the expense of a throw. The home fans applaud Reid for his hard work.
Craig Bellamy's delivery causes problems in the Albion box, but Michael Oliver blows his whistle and awards the home side a free-kick.
This is much better from the Bluebirds now as they keep some sustained possession in the middle of the park.
CLOSE! Andrew Taylor's low ball across is very nearly turned home by Fraizer Campbell. Ben Foster does well though!
James Morrison breaks from midfield and although the ball from Steven Reid is a good one, Cardiff get enough players back to handle the situation.
Cardiff edged past West Brom 1-0 at home back in December with Peter Whittingham scoring the game's only goal. Whittingham has scored in his last three league appearances against West Brom for Cardiff, but he's on the bench today. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may have to contemplate making some early changes because his side are getting a beating.
If Cardiff lose today, it will be the first time they would have lost nine away games in a row in 77 years. They're in big trouble and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer knows it too!
ALBION DOUBLE THEIR LEAD! Graham Dorrans scores his first goal in a year and it was all so easy. Morgan Amalfitano's left-footed cross into the box is knocked down by Matej Vydra for the Scotland international to slot the ball beyond David Marshall.
Cardiff are all over the place at the back and almost concede another with James Morrison coming inches from converting a low cross from the right.
MAGNIFICENT GOAL! Brilliant improvisation from Morgan Amalfitano who hands Albion the lead with a stunning lob from the angle. Gary Medel's poor header falls to the French midfielder who spots David Marshall fractionally off his line and lifts his right-footed effort over his head and into the far corner. That's his first goal since his winner against Manchester United at Old Trafford, but did he mean it as a cross or a shot? I think he meant it!
The home side are on the front foot from the start and are pressing the men in red, who are all behind the ball. Pepe Mel is on the touchline and looks a little nervy...who can blame him?
Both teams are in their home kits while the pitch is in decent condition. The Hawthorns is absolutely rammed. You would expect a few nerves for this one but both teams have to go for it don't they? Referee Michael Oliver gets us underway.
West Brom have won just one of their last 10 Premier League games at the Hawthorns (W1 D6 L3) while Cardiff have lost their last eight away games in the top flight. Who will come out on top this afternoon?

Steve Burrows is the first person to email in this afternoon and he says: "Hey Raz, Just following the commentary over here in Vancouver, Canada. I wish Mel would stop this over the top boasting about winning. He was the same before the Hull game last week and look what happened! It's vital we pick up points today, but without Olsson in the side we never win!" Yes Steve, the Swedish centre-half is still missing with a hamstring injury.
Last five league matches: West Brom D D L W L; Cardiff L L W L L. Top scorers (all competitions): Saido Berahino (West Brom) 8; Fraizer Campbell (Cardiff) 9.
West Brom are 4/5 to claim victory with our friends @Skybet, who make Cardiff 100/30 and the draw 13/5. Matej Vydra is 6/1 to score the opening goal of the game for Albion while Stephane Sessegnon is priced at 7/1. Frazier Campbell is the first Cardiff player to head the betting at 7/1. The Bluebirds have managed three goals in two of their last three matches and are available at 11/1 to score three plus goals, while a West Brom win with both teams to score is 5/2. The Baggies are without a win at The Hawthorns since a New Years' Day success over Newcastle, but they have drawn four of their last five home games 1-1, a repeat of this scoreline is available at 5/1 here. I'm going for a 2-2 draw and that scoreline is priced at 14/1. Head now to SKYBET to place your bets on this match.
WEST BROM TEAM NEWS: Albion are without injured striker Victor Anichebe. Baggies boss Pepe Mel brings Morgan Amalfitano and Matej Vydra back into his starting line-up as he goes in search of his first home win since taking charge.
CARDIFF TEAM NEWS: Looking to end a run of eight straight away league losses, Cardiff boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer makes three changes following his side's 6-3 thumping by Liverpool, with Ben Turner, Andrew Taylor and Aron Gunnarsson all starting.
WEST BROM (4-3-1-2): Foster, Reid, McAuley, Dawson, Ridgewell, Morrison, Mulumbu, Dorrans, Amalfitano, Sessegnon, Vydra.
CARDIFF CITY (5-3-2): Marshall; Fabio, Turner, Caulker, Theophile-Catherine, Taylor; Medel, Mutch, Gunnarsson; Bellamy, Campbell.
Albion boss Mel is convinced his side can win this huge clash on home soil because they will be able to create more opportunities from the middle of the park. "We're very capable of creating scoring opportunities and we're convinced, if we don't concede, we'll be able to win the game. It's obvious if we concede fewer goals we'll have greater opportunity because we're a team from midfield going forward that create opportunities and are successful in that." Do you agree with his comments Baggies fans? Email Raz...that's me! at email@example.com or Tweet me: @RazMirza and I'll publish the best.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits 19th-placed Cardiff have a vital 10 days ahead of them as they take on West Brom today and then Crystal Palace at home next Saturday. "The next two games will be massive because they're against the two teams directly around us. It's going to be a vital 10 days coming up. Saturday is a massive game for both teams. We go there to win the game but we can't be as open as we were against Liverpool, although we'll of course want to push forward when we get the opportunity. We're concentrating on ourselves, making sure we get what we need. We can get the points and results we need, we all share that belief; we know what we have to do. Looking at the next two games and then to April it's a month that we have the chance to get some good points from." Can you pick up the points today Cardiff fans?

So, the Baggies and Bluebirds go head-to-head in this massive Premier League relegation six-pointer at the Hawthorns or as Albions boss Pepe Mel would say ... "seis puntero". A win for Albion would send them six points clear of the Welsh side in what promises to be a nerve-wracking afternoon in the Midlands. The Welsh club knowing they realistically require maximum points, both this weekend and against Crystal Palace in eight days' time, to ignite hopes of staying up. A victory for the visitors would put them level on points with their hosts, however, an inferior goal difference would see them likely stay in the relegation zone.
EARLY WEST BROM TEAM NEWS: Albion striker Victor Anichebe faces a fitness test on a hamstring problem. Gareth McAuley (ankle) should feature, Morgan Amalfitano and Diego Lugano (both knee) are back in training and could play, but Claudio Yacob and Billy Jones (both hamstring) are out. Jonas Olsson completes his two-match ban, while captain Chris Brunt (knee) remains out.
EARLY CARDIFF CITY NEWS: City hope winger Craig Noone could be available for this relegation scrap. Noone failed a fitness test ahead of last weekend's 6-3 home defeat against Liverpool, and assistant manager Mark Dempsey says he will be "looked at" on Saturday morning. City boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could decide to retain the team that started the Liverpool game, especially after an outstanding first-half display when they twice led the title-chasers through goals from Jordon Mutch (two) and Fraizer Campbell.
