West Bromwich Albion strolled past West Ham United in the FA Cup thanks to a brace from Brown Ideye and goals from Saido Berahino and James Morrison.

The home side looked strong from the start as James Morrison got forward inside the opening 10 minutes to cause Sam Allardyce’s side danger.

Following a spell of dominance from Tony Pulis’s side, Brown Ideye would give the hosts the lead when he turned in a low cross.

Craig Gardner almost made it two when he unleashed a powerful drive from 30 yards out, but his effort smashed off the crossbar.

The Baggies did double the lead just before the break when Morrison did well to beat Alex Song, before firing a 25-yard effort into the top corner.

The second half saw West Brom further extend their lead when Stephane Sessegnon found Ideye, who doubled his account for the day.

Any hopes of a comeback from West Ham were ended when Morgan Amalfitano was sent off against his former club for shoving Chris Brunt in the face.

West Brom capitalised on their man advantage almost straight away as Saido Berahino made it four and secured their passage to the next round.
