West Brom’s winless run extended to six games after the Championship chiefs endured a 1-0 destruction at home to Stoke. The striker Tyrese Campbell, whose father Kevin played for the Baggies, scored the main objective following nine minutes.
West Brom neglected to constrain a genuine spare from the Stoke goalkeeper, Jack Butland, as their ongoing troubles proceeded. Slaven Bilic’s side have now taken just four focuses from their last 18 accessible yet regardless they lead the table by a from Leeds United.
“It’s a similar gathering of players who even with six games without a success, OK, it’s a small emergency – however we are still over the table,” said Bilic. This gathering of players, together with staff and the fans, have done it. So there’s no enchantment equation – submit yourself more, buckle down, delve in and get it back. It’s a blow for us, obviously, however we can’t rationalize.”
Stir moved four focuses away from the transfer zone in the wake of verifying progressive away successes.
West Brom were managed an early blow when their left-wing, Grady Diangana, making his first beginning since 14 December following a hamstring damage, was left limping in just the subsequent moment and he was before long supplanted.
Scratch Powell sent Tom Ince hustling endlessly and Ahmed Hegazi neglected to clear. This enabled the winger to square to Campbell, who guided the ball in from 10 yards for his fifth objective in nine class games.
Tragically for Campbell that was his last important bit of activity as he turned into the subsequent player to limp off. Lee Gregory supplanted him following 25 minutes.
West Brom had been well worse than average for the initial 20 minutes before Matheus Pereira saw a short proximity header held by Butland at stake. At that point Kenneth Zohore went close with a twisting exertion from 22 yards and Pereira almost scored an equalizer when his twisting free-kick cruised only wide with Butland at full stretch profound into first-half stoppage time.
