3 things we clearly learnt about West Brom after their 2-1 win at Reading

Published

on

West Brom made it three wins in a row as they came from behind to beat Reading 2-1 at the Madejski Stadium last night.

George Puscas put the Royals ahead from the spot after Kyle Bartley inexplicably handled in the box but Albion gradually began to take control and dominate the game.

And, they were back level in the first-half when Matheus Pereira scored before Bartley made amends by heading in what turned out to be the winner.

Whilst there were a few nervy moments at the end, the Baggies were brilliant for much of the game and really should have won by a few more goals to reflect their superiority.

Here we look at THREE things we learnt from the win…

They are a class above most in the league

As mentioned, the overall feeling following last night has to be positivity. Albion are six points clear at the top and they played some outstanding football, with the blip over December and January well and truly behind them.

Slaven Bilic’s men moved the ball well, they created chances and they were a constant threat. If they maintain this level moving forward then they will win the title.

They have a spirit within the group

Over the course of a Championship season you have to respond to setbacks and different challenges. On Sunday, Albion battled the elements to win convincingly at Millwall and they made it successive away wins in Berkshire.

To do that from a goal down was impressive. They could have felt sorry for themselves after Reading’s opener but instead they raised their game and responded emphatically.

What season did Igor Balis score this crucial penalty?

Callum Robinson is the perfect Grady Diangana replacement

West Brom’s struggles over the past few months came after they lost Grady Diangana to injury. Not only was he a top player and a goal threat but he had the pace to stretch the opposition, which helped Pereira and others in the final third.

And, Albion had no one like the West Ham loanee until they completed a loan move for Robinson. The Ireland international has come in down the left flank and has stepped up immediately. He is quick, direct and a quality player at this level.
