huddersfield-v-west-brom:-championship-– live!

90+1 min: Semi Ajayi and Hegazi have gone up front as unorthodox strikers. West Brom need one goal, but probably two to resuscitate their hopes of automatic promotion. And now O’Brien lures a silly foul from Charlie Austin.

90 min: Pereira wins a corner … there will be SIX minutes of added time.

Updated

89 min: Leeds United are one minute from the Premier League.

88 min: Darnell Furlong is booked.

GOAL! Huddersfield 2-1 West Brom (Smith Rowe, 86)

Well, then … Emile Smith Rowe slots home with a beautiful finish after latching on to a fine through ball by Lewis O’Brien, who did magnificently to surge forward through the spine of the West Brom midfield. That is an enormous goal not just for Huddersfield and their survival hopes, but Leeds, who are heading up, and Brentford, who now have everything in their own hands …

Updated

85 min: Lossl is booked for time-wasting.

Updated

83 min: A massive chance goes begging for West Brom! Robinson fails to properly connect with the ball after carving an opening – and Lossl gathers. It was a powder-puff finish, much to the frustration of Slaven Bilic. Huddersfield are living dangerously but West Brom are guilty of getting jittery in the final third.

Updated

82 min: Grosicki slips in Robinson but, instead of taking aim, he looks for Austin and Huddersfield intercept! It is getting a bit dicey back there for the Terriers. How are you feeling, Leeds fans? Leeds are eight minutes from the Premier League …

80 min: Krovinovic is booked for a painful dive 30 yards from goal! Meanwhile, Elias Kachunga replaces Chris Willock.

79 min: Lossl gather after Grosicki attempts a cheeky shot with the outside of his right boot! In the end it is a simple save. It stemmed from Krovinovic fetching a cross at the back post, bamboozling Chalobah, who tried to rake the ball away.

Updated

78 min: Pereira, West Brom’s go-to player, swivels just inside the Huddersfield box and takes aim – but Huddersfield get another body in the way. They’re attempting to turn the screw but they are making life difficult.

77 min: West Brom seem to be losing their rag a little, and understandably so. Bilic is urging calm on the touchline but it’s easier said than done. They have had little to shout about. At least Brentford and Leeds will be enjoying this.

75 min: Callum Robinson replaces Diangana, who has flitted in and out of the game. West Brom are not short of guile and attacking ability – but they desperately need one of them to stick the ball in the back of the net.

Updated

74 min: West Brom are heading for a third successive draw, while Brentford have won seven on the bounce since the restart.

Updated

72 min: Pereira is penalised for pulling Hogg down to the ground. Bilic looks supremely anxious. West Brom are struggling to penetrate Huddersfield, despite the hosts’ seeming to give up the ghost in terms of winning the game.

71 min: Pereira jinks inside Jonathan Hogg and has a pop from 25 yards – it sails over. Meanwhile, Huddersfield freshen things up, with top scorer Karlan Grant and Arsenal loanee Emile Smith Rowe arriving off the bench.

Updated

70 min: Bilic is pacing the technical area. He is not exactly calming any West Brom nerves. Leeds, as it stands, are 20 minutes from the top flight.

Updated

68 min: Drinks break II!

Updated

67 min: … it skims over the head of Ajayi and West Brom cannot keep it alive at the back post. Huddersfield look to counter but Mounie is painfully isolated and just about everyone else is entrenched inside the Huddersfield half.

Updated

67 min: Pereira earns a free-kick 30 yards out …

Updated

65 min: Grosicki crosses from the left but Huddersfield cut it out to prevent the ball running through for the lurking Austin. Then Ajayi makes a marvellous intervention to kickstart another attack. West Brom are probing. But they need something more tangible.

Updated

64 min: If things stay like this, Leeds will be a Premier League side in 30 minutes’ time. West Brom have found it tough to trouble Huddersfield.

Updated

63 min: Mounie replaces Fraizer Campbell.

Updated

62 min: Lossl repels Pereira! He smashes a volley at goal but it is struck right at him, to give the Huddersfield goalkeeper a helping hand. Pereira then heads over the rebound, overcooking it.

Updated

61 min: No Championship player has scored more goals as a substitute this season than Charlie Austin, who has six off the bench. Oh how West Brom would welcome another one, which would surely be his most important one yet.

Updated

60 min: And now Fraizer Campbell is booked. John Brooks has been very busy popping his cards in and out of his pocket.

Updated

60 min: Charlie Austin replaces Robson-Kanu and Darnell Furlong is on for Conor Townsend, who recently picked up a booking.

Updated

59 min: Huddersfield make a mess of it clear but clear their lines. Meanwhile, West Brom are readying changes.

Updated

58 min: Campbell fouls Ajayi, just inside the Huddersfield half. West Brom will launch the free-kick into box. Pereira to take …

Updated

56 min: West Brom go close! Diangana’s teasing ball lures Lossl out of goal, with Stearman also diving to meet it. Panic ensues and the ball drops to Pereira, but his volley is blocked by a flurry of blue-and-white shirts. The corner comes to nothing. A whiff of goal, but West Brom require more.

Updated

55 min: Sawyers is penalised for a shove on O’Brien on halfway. The second half has been very stop-start thus far.

Updated

54 min: … it is a gorgeous ball in; it arcs into the six-yard box but none of Campbell and co can latch on it on the stretch.

53 min: Bacuna will whip a free-kick in from the right …

Updated

52 min: Bilic is geeing his team up. They have fallen a little flat after rousing towards the end of the first half. Campbell has bought a couple of cheap fouls out West Brom defenders, with Conor Townsend the latest to go into the book. The referee John Brooks does seem quite card-happy.

50 min: Grosicki fouls Toffolo after failing to make the move of an incisive break down the right. It stemmed from good work by Pereira but West Brom are packed full of flair players, and not too many who want to put their foot in, Sawyers aside. Huddersfield are attempting to suffocate West Brom’s creative threats before they get chance to wreak havoc.

Updated

49 min: … West Brom clear but fail to counter.

Updated

48 min: Huddersfield win a corner after another raiding run by Chris Willock, whose cross is cut out by a West Brom block …

Updated

47 min: Surely West Brom cannot start this half as badly as they did the first? Krovinovic and Grosicki should ensure plenty of craft.

Updated

46 min: Krovinovic and Grosicki replace Matt Phillips and Jake Livermore, both of whom were off-colour in a first half which seemed to pass them by. It’s a positive step by Slaven Bilic, taking off his defensive-minded captain.

West Brom are making a double substitution, with Filip Krovinovic and Kamil Grosicki entering at the break. Second half up next.

Leeds fans, you are 45 minutes away …

Jude Bellingham is heading to Dortmund:

Half-time: Huddersfield 1-1 West Brom

Leeds are going up as it stands. Meanwhile, Danny Cowley leads away Andy King and Bacuna from the officials as the referee, John Brooks, blows for half-time. They’re not happy about something.

45+3 min: West Brom are finally playing some nice stuff. But they surely need to win to keep Brentford, who face Stoke on Saturday, at bay.

45+1 min: We are into the first of five minutes of stoppage time.

45 min: Diangana surges towards the six-yard box but Robson-Kanu cannot latch on to his cross. A golden opportunity. A penny for the thoughts of Charlie Austin, who is warming the bench. That goal has done West Brom wonders because Huddersfield are suddenly on the ropes.

GOAL! Huddersfield 1-1 West Brom (O’Shea, 42)

Dara O’Shea heads in the rebound! Pereira whips in a delicious left-footed cross, it bounces in front of Lossl, who can only palm it into the path of the West Brom defender, who piles in at the back post. O’Shea heads in, though Huddersfield believe he was offside.
