The visitors were already one goal to the good eight minutes from time when Scott Carson inexplicably headbutted Michael Chopra, earning a red card in the process.

Substitute goalkeeper Dean Kiely saved the resulting penalty from Peter Whittingham although the Bluebirds midfielder pounced on the rebound to register his 12th league goal of the season.

Livewire winger Chris Burke had already capped a man-of-the-match performance with his second in as many games after 18 minutes, although he was helped by a hesitant Baggies rearguard who failed to challenge his roaming run.

It was a bad night for Albion who lost their six-match unbeaten run and did not look a side sitting second in the Championship.
