Three see red as Baggies beat Saints

Referee Robert Madley had a Barclays Premier League debut to remember as he dished out three red cards during West Brom's record-breaking 3-0 victory at Southampton.

Marc Antoine-Fortune opened the scoring in just the sixth minute after Saints failed to clear their lines. Fortune helped the Baggies double their lead after the break, putting through the ever-impressive Romelu Lukaku, but three minutes later Fortune was sent off, having raised his hands to Gaston Ramirez, who also saw red for throwing an arm at Shane Long.

Seven minutes from time Southampton's Danny Fox was sent off for a nasty two-footed challenge on Steven Reid. Long had already made it 3-0 by that point as West Brom set a new club record for Premier League matches won (14) and points gained (48), much to the delight of the bumper away crowd of 3,195.
