West Bromwich Albion moved six points clear at the top of the Championship last night, after defeating Reading by two goals to one at the Madejski Stadium.
The Baggies capitalised on Leeds’ defeat to Nottingham Forest with a win over Millwall at the weekend, and after the Whites’ 1-1 draw with Brentford on Tuesday night, Albion had another opportunity to take advantage.
Reading did go a goal ahead on the night, though, with George Puscas scoring from the penalty spot after only 11 minutes.
Slaven Bilic’s side did come back fighting, though, with Matheus Pereira striking an equaliser just before the half hour mark to score his sixth goal of the campaign.
It didn’t take long for the Baggies to take the lead, either, with Kyle Bartley heading a looping effort home right after half-time, and that proved to be enough for Albion.
Can you get full marks on this West Brom quiz?
Callum Robinson produced arguably his best performance in a West Brom shirt so far, producing a wonderful cross to set up Pereira for Albion’s equalising goal.
He has really impressed since joining on loan from Sheffield United, and here, we take a look at West Brom fans’ reactions to his latest outing…
Need to say it again but #wba we’re awesome last night, deserved another 2 or 3 goals. Looking very good. Livermore & HRK playing their best football, Robinson’s directness has made a big difference, Perreria 🔥🔥

Can’t tell you how much work Robinson did with and without the ball tonight. He deserved a goal which will come if his performances stay like this. #wba

Results have gone our way and we’ve capitalised on it with huge away wins on the bounce. Thought we were brilliant for two thirds of the game tonight. Robinson MOTM for me but Pereira superb again, as was Livermore. Some lovely football too #wba
