"I just think there's certain areas of the team where we make mistakes and get punished". When Craig Dawson felled Joshua King 25 yards from goal, Stanislas stepped up to sink Albion with a peach of a free-kick.

Pardew's side face a crucial game against Bournemouth tomorrow, and nothing less than a win will do, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of avoiding the drop this season.
