West Bromwich Albion dropped two points in the Championship promotion race at Blackburn Rovers. They were just two points ahead of third-placed Brentford before kick-off at Ewood Park after the Bees marched to their seventh successive win against Derby County. Albion played a 1-1 draw with the Rovers, as Filip Krovinovic and Joe Rothwell both scored for their sides.
And while the Baggies will need maximum points against Fulham on Tuesday to ensure Brentford aren’t afforded a way into the top two, the draw also means Leeds remain top of the table on goal difference. The Whites could create a three-point gap at the top of the division when Marcelo Bielsa’s side face Swansea City on Sunday.
Many Leeds United fans have come up with theories for West Bromwich. Here is what they had to say:
One supporter said: “Finally something has given. That five goal victory has proved to be very useful for us. If we win tomorrow West Brom will be very nervous.”
“Win tomorrow and we gain two points on West Brom, we play Barnsley midweek, West Brom play Fulham and Brentford play Preston, a win tomorrow would be massive,” said another.
The third one said: “We win tomorrow then the pressure is massively on West Brom with them having Fulham next.”
“GET IN BLACKBURN! Finally a favour, massive pressure on West Brom now with Fulham to play next,” posted another supporter.
One fan claimed: “West Brom are wobbling.”
“Fulham to beat West Brom, us to beat Swansea and Barnsley, then promoted with a point at Derby. Very nice,” added a sixth.
