West Brom   4 - 2   Newcastle

Jonas Olsson
Olsson's opener set the tone for a superb afternoon for the Baggies

West Brom sealed their place in the last 16 of the FA Cup with a comfortable win over 10-man Newcastle.

Jonas Olsson headed in Chris Brunt's corner before Graham Dorrans scored from the spot after Tamas Kadar was adjudged to have fouled Roman Bednar.

Andy Carroll's volley gave the visitors hope before Ryan Taylor saw red for a challenge on Jerome Thomas in the box.

Dorrans converted the penalty and Thomas tapped in a fourth, with Carroll firing home a late consolation.

It was a home win that rarely looked in doubt, even before the Magpies' hopes were effectively ended by Taylor's red card and the subsequent penalty from Dorrans.

The two clubs battling for promotion back to the Premier League had drawn both their league meetings this season, most recently a 2-2 draw at St James' Park on Monday.

But the managers' respective approach to this game was very different, with Baggies boss Robert Di Matteo naming an unchanged line-up while Newcastle's Chris Hughton replaced five players.

The home side's greater fluidity was clear from the start and they took a deserved lead when Olsson, who opened the scoring in the sides' previous meeting six days ago, repeated the trick on 17 minutes.

Brunt whipped in a corner and the Swedish defender was allowed a free header that crawled over the line despite the despairing efforts of Jose Enrique to clear it.

With the visitors looking disjointed, West Brom's dominance continued and they soon doubled their lead, albeit in controversial circumstances.

The Magpies' Hungarian centre-back Kadar was involved in a seemingly innocuous tangle with Bednar just inside the 18-yard box, but the referee's assistant flagged for a penalty, much to the dismay of the Newcastle defenders.

Dorrans showed little sympathy with an emphatic finish from the penalty spot that was too good for Tim Krul, who had dived the right way.

Hughton brought on Shola Ameobi at half-time and the forward had Newcastle's first meaningful chance, seeing his shot well parried by Scott Carson.

His strike-partner Carroll then dragged his side back into the game. Jonas Gutierrez broke down the left and cut the ball back for Carroll to hammer an unstoppable volley past Carson.

The Magpies looked rejuvenated but just as they began to push for an equaliser, their hopes of a comeback were swiftly ended.

Ameobi was denied a penalty after being sandwiched between two defenders and the ball was hoofed straight upfield, where Taylor hauled down Thomas in the box.

Referee James Linnington sent Taylor to the stands and Dorrans calmly tucked away his second spot-kick of the game, despite keeper Krul again diving the right way.

Minutes later, Thomas capitalised on the uncertainty in the visitors' back line and tapped home a fourth goal from inside the six-yard box.

There was still time for Carroll to notch his second of the game, twisting and turning before firing past Carson in injury time - but it was not enough to preserve the Magpies' 14-game unbeaten run.


Newcastle manager Chris Hughton:
"The first goal, I can't for the life of me see how a linesman can rule that over the line.

"The first penalty was soft - if the referee gives that he has to give the two for (fouls on) Taylor and Ameobi.

"For the sending off, we are led to believe he was going to give a yellow card and changed his mind to a red one - I think that is incredibly harsh."

West Brom coach Eddie Newton:
"If you are on the losing side, people might start staying 'referee this and referee that'.

"The referee has a hard job, it is easy to look back and say 'he should have done this or that'.

"He has got to make split-second decisions and he's seen it as he has seen it - it has gone for us and not for them. It happens."
