Adam Lallana had stunned the home fans by putting Southampton ahead with just 13 minutes of this Championship match to go – temporarily taking the relegation-threatened Saints out of the bottom three.

But fellow substitute Brunt drilled a low shot under the body of goalkeeper Richard Wright six minutes later to spark off scenes of wild celebration amongst the Baggies fans.

It means Tony Mowbray’s side move ahead of previous leaders Stoke on goal difference with just one game remaining.

The Baggies would have to lose at QPR while Hull, the only side who can deny them promotion, would need to win at Ipswich and manufacture a 12-goal swing to deny them.
