West Brom had a decent 1-0 win at home tonight against Coventry City at the Hawthorns, and stay just two points behind leaders Newcastle United.
Steven Reid – scored West Brom’s winner tonight.
The only goal of the game was scored after just 22 minutes by Steven Reid, who is on loan at West Brom from Blackburn Rovers.
The 3 points puts West Brom on 78 points from 39 games, just two points behind Newcastle, who have a game in hand and a better goal difference.
Nottingham Forest are on 70 points from 39 games but the 4th placed side, Leicester City are on just 61 points, after being beaten at home 2-1 by the ever improving Reading side.
Newcastle must still visit Reading on 13th April, so hopefully automatic promotion will already be ours by that time and we’ll just need the win to ensure we finish top of the league. 😀
But with only 3 teams in it for the top two spots, a win for Newcastle next Monday night against Forest at St. James’ Park could almost guarantee that Newcastle clinch a promotion spot.
Then we need to win the Championship.
Howay The Lads!!
