Charlie Austin's last-minute penalty sent West Brom back to the top of the Championship.

Despite enormous appeals from the home side, referee Oliver Langford pointed to the spot after keeper Declan Rudd was ruled to have brought down West Brom’s Kyle Edwards in the box.

Austin, who had just come on as a substitute, sent Rudd the wrong way to end a night of frustration for Slaven Bilic’s side.
