    Background: AFTER CHELSEA HAD TAKEN A DESERVED LEAD IN THEIR SIXTH ROUND FOOTBALL ASSOCIATION (FA) CUP-TIE TODAY (SATURDAY) CHELSEA'S LONDON GROUND AT STANFORD BRIDGE, BAD DEFENSIVE WORK ALLOWED THE CUP HOLDERS, WEST BROMICH ALBION TO EQUALISE AND THEN TAKE THE LEAD IN THE SECOND HALF.

    CHELSEA STARTED WELL, PINNING THE WEST BROMICH TEAM DEEP IN THEIR OWN HALF. AFTER TEN MINUTES, TAMBLING CURLED IN A FREE KICK FROM THE RIGHT AND SCORED A GOAL FOR CHELSEA. DESPITE CONTINUING DETERMINED OFFENSIVE PLAY FROM CHELSEA, WEST BROMICH EQUALISED AFTER THE TWENTY SEVENTH MINUTE, WITH A GOAL SCORED BY BROWN.

    IN THE SECOND HALF A BALL FROM A CORNER KICK BY WEST BROMICH'S MARTIN WENT OVER THE LINE INTO THE CHELSEA GOAL, BUT THE REFEREE DISALLOWED IT AND AWARDED A PENALTY KICK.

    BROWN OF WEST BROMICH THUMPED THE PENALTY REALLY HARD, BUT BONETTI THE CHELSEA KEEPER MADE A TREMENDOUS SAVE, DIVING TO THE LEFT TO PUSH THE BALL WIDE.
