Pete Sixsmith begins another round of instant seven-word verdicts on the games he sees – which is most SAFC games; supersubs stand in if he’s absent – with today’s 2-2 draw at the Hawthorns. He saw Lee Cattermole’s excellent long-range shot beat Ben Foster after five minutes only for SAFC to repeat old bad habits of defending far too deep for the rest of the half, which ended with a Baggies equaliser from a debatable penalty. A lead for Albion on the 74th minute seemed likely to decide the game but Seb Larsson scored a fine late equaliser afetr great work from Jordi Gomez and Patrick Van Aanholt. Jack Rodwell? A debut to forget…
