Kenedy looked to have leveled the score in the 34th minute, trading passes with Ayoze Perez but dinking his shot off the outside of the post.
Mo Diame had a close shot deflected over the bar, and Newcastle were refused shouts for a penalty kick off the ensuing corner kick. Foster also made an outstanding in-tight save prior to the uncalled foul.
The counter attack saw Martin Dubravka make a fine save on Jay Rodriguez.
West Brom stayed stingy in the second half, hoping to avoid formalizing its Championship status for another week.
