West Bromwich Albion v Brighton & Hove Albion

West Bromwich Albion ended their 20-match unbeaten run with a 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion at The Hawthorns.

The hosts took the lead after just four minutes when Jay Rodriguez flicked on Matt Phillips’s corner and Jonny Evans rose to convert a far-post header.

West Brom might have been two goals up when Craig Dawson played a one-two with Salomon Rondon, only to be denied by Mat Ryan on 41 minutes.

Dawson got the second 10 minutes after half-time with another header from a corner, this time Chris Brunt’s.

Despite a first victory since a 1-0 win at Burnley on 19 August, West Brom remain 19th but are within two points of 16th-placed Southampton. Brighton are 15th.
