  • Six pages of coverage in The Argus on Monday

5:01pm

Rodriguez replaced Lingard in added time.

The Spaniard started the counter attack which led to a delighted FORSTER-CASKEY firing the third with a low drive from the edge of the box.

Final: Albion 3 Charlton 0

4:57pm

Albion sent on Calderon for March for the final minutes.

Calderon took a position on the right of midfield.

There were sarcastic celebrations among Charlton fans when their side won a corner. It came to nothing.

 

4:47pm

It was all quite serene in the sunshine for Albion and their appreciative fans.

Forster-Caskey curled a free-kick inches wide from the edge of the box after Dervite fouled Lingard.

Charlton looked to shake things up a bit by introducing striker Church for midfielder Jackson.

4:42pm

Albion were still playing nice stuff, notably an attack which led to Bruno's low cross being put behind by Solly in front of his own goal.

 

4:33pm

Att: 28,770 (1,869 away fans)

4:30pm

Both teams made a change on 64 minutes. Forster-Caskey replaced LuaLua and Charlton sent on Solly for Reza.

4:29pm

With many fans' attention taken by Mackail-Smith's appearance to limber up along the touchline, Ulloa's super flick sent Lingard clean through but he shot over with just Hamer to beat.

Ulloa and Andrews both had shots blocked as the pressure continued.

4:27pm

Ward got in a good challenge on Cousins to thwart an attack started by Poyet's clever pass.

But Albion were more incisive at the other end and Lingard cut inside for a shot which deflected just wide.

The corner was played back to March, whose chip forced Hamer to take no risks and tip over.

Then Albion should have put the contest beyond doubt.

 

4:22pm

There were two early bookings for fouls - for Harriott and LuaLua. The latter clipped the heels of Wilson on halfway as the right-back sped away on a counter raid.

Charlton got Sordell into a good position on the edge of the box but Bruno earned cheers as he slid in with a perfectly-time tackle.

Then March tugged back Cousins and was shown yellow.

Jackson swung in the free-kick and Ankergren rose highest at the far post to catch cleanly.

 

4:13pm

Charlton sent on Harriott for Ajdarevic at half-time. 

3:55pm

It was a stunning end to an interesting first 45 minutes.

Half: Albion 2 Charlton 0

3:54pm

Albion had a big let off when Reza's shot deflected off Greer, looped over Ankergren and hit the bar.

The Seagulls took full advantage within a minute as Lingard slid in ULLOA to thump an emphatic finish past Hamer as Charlton looked for offside.

 

3:48pm

Wilson at last got in a tackle on LuaLua - only for his subsequent clearance to be half charged down by his tormentor.

That set up the chance for Lingard to let fly from just outside the box and his effort flicked off a defender and wide.

 

3:45pm

LuaLua was looking bright at times although his next run was wasted when March crossed straight to Hamer.

Then Lingard sent LuaLua away on a run outside Wilson but his low cross was well cleared by Dervite under pressure from Ulloa.

 

3:41pm

Charlton countered and got Reza one-on-one with Bruno on the edge of the box. The Iranian pushed the ball past Bruno and went down but ref East waved play on.

3:36pm

Albion's early tempo had dropped now although they were passing the ball around neatly.

 

 

3:29pm

Bruno's poor pass gifted the Addicks a corner but the right-back made amends when he stretched to cut out a dangerous low cross in the immediate aftermath of the flag kick.

Then Greer got across to make a superb tackle as last man when Charlton won possession and sent Sordell racing away towards the penalty area.

The visitors were coming more into the contest.

 

3:26pm

Albion's next threat came on a counter raid. Stephens' clever reverse pass under pressure deep in his own half gave LuaLua chance to run.

He sped outside Wilson after pushing the ball past him but Hamer dived at the winger's feet to smother his shot almost at source. 

 

3:21pm

Deep-lying midfielder Poyet received the ball ten yards outside his own box and was hustled off it by LuaLua.

That gave LINGARD a chance and he took it superbly, beating the last defender and superbly flicking a low finish across Hamer's dive and inside the far post.

3:20pm

Hamer also held the next cross, drilled from the byline by March after Ward had played him in down the left.

But Albion got the early lead they craved after Charlton played themselves into trouble.

 

3:15pm

The game got off to a high tempo start and LuaLua flashed a drive wide from outside the box.

Then LuaLua roamed to the left, went on a run and crossed - but straight to keeper Hamer.

Andrews slid a precise pass to Lingard 25 yards out but his shot sliced harmlessly past the upright.

Still, it was a bright opening as supporters' songs bounced around the stands.

March had a foray down the right and used Bruno's run outside him as a decoy, but his cross was overhit.

 

 

3:10pm

There were boos from Charlton fans for Dale Stephens!

3:09pm

We have just had a minute's silence.

Before that, when the teams were announced, the biggest cheer was probably for Craig Mackail-Smith, who is among the subs.

Albion going North to South in this first half and the atmosphere is vibrant.

3:05pm

It's a big game at both ends of the Championship but, before that, a late start.

The sides are just walking out now for this 3.07pm kick-off as we remember events at Hillsborough 25 years ago.

You'll Never Walk Alone was played a few minutes ago.

There will be a minute's silence ahead of kick-off.

Thanks guys-I go there in the end.
Seeing the match live is so much better.
Positives We won 3-0 should have been 4 when Lingard was through, chipped their goalie but also over the goal as well. Played some decent stuff and dominated the game.
Also very good goal at the end by FK
At last in the playoff zone--even if by goal diff.
Negatives--For me the second half was drab at times, too much getting forward then the ball ending up with our goalie.
Shame ´fans´were leaving the ground in their droves 15 mins before end---is that to do with transport? If so something albion have to look at.
