The referee blows the half-time whistle at the Hawthorns and it’s all going to plan for the Premier League outfit.
Long-range strikes from Rekeem Harper and Hal Robsun-Kanu have put Slaven Bilic’s side in front at the break. Simon Weaver’s Harrogate have had chances though…
The League Two visitors nearly had a goal back at the Hawthorns but Scottish forward Mark Beck could only fire straight at Albion goalkeeper David Button.
The Baggies shot stopper has been busy tonight despite the scoreline – he was forced into a stunning one-armed stop from Aaron Martin’s header earlier in the game.
