Guochaun Lai, West Brom’s Chinese owner, was at the match and has dismissed Pulis with the club one place and one point above the relegation zone.

“We are in a results business and over the back end of last season and this season to date, ours have been very disappointing. We would like to place on record our appreciation of Tony’s contribution and hard work during a period of transition for the club which included a change of ownership. We wish him well in his future endeavours.” Lai said.
