Van Dijk of Southampton FC red carded 89 minutes towards the end of the game after having previously picked up a yellow earlier in the game for a foul on another West Brom player.

Despite the home team finding the lead 41 minutes in the first half of the game they lacked the momentum to delight the home fans at St. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton Hampshire as an equaliser by the visiting team’s Matt Phillips in just 2 minutes after Shane Long gave the host team the lead.

Hal Robson-Kanu scored a brilliant goal in the 50th minute of the second half for West Bromwich to add the woes of the home team’s fans.
