Andy Carroll’s run toward a diagonal ball nearly brought danger, but his first touch was tricky.
A pair of West Brom chances followed, including history-making Barry’s attempt at a headed corner diverted over the bar.
Pedro Obiang had the audacity to shoot from 40-plus yards, and saw his curling effort crank off the cross bar.
In a game begging for action, Ben Foster saw yellow for chopping down Javier Hernandez outside the 18.
