This match is listed in all known record books etc. as being an away game at The Hawthorns which West Brom won 4-2. Having been advised by a fellow researcher they'd found the match programme and confirmed via contemporary newspaper articles, it is now known that this was in fact a home game at Stamford Bridge. The result/scorers are all as previously known. Just the venue has changed from away to home. Attendance changed from 36365 to 32800 (with gate recepts of £2193) as per contemporary news reports
