West Brom kept up the pressure on promotion chasing sides with a hard-fought 3-2 win over QPR on Tuesday evening.
The result sees the Baggies move to within touching distance of the automatic promotion spots, and they’ll certainly be in the mix by the end of the season.
The game also marked a return to action for winger, Matt Phillips who made his return from injury.
The Scotsman was last in action on New Year’s Day, when the Baggies were defeated by Blackburn Rovers.
His return will provide Darren Moore with a welcome selection headache for the remainder of the season as they look to return to the Premier League at the first time of asking following their relegation last year.
Phillips has five goals and seven assists to his name and will be eager to make up for lost time.
The 27-year-old was evidently delighted to be back, and took to Instagram after the win over QPR at Loftus Road.
Phillips faces a tough battle ahead of him to force his way back into the starting XI, with the likes of Jefferson Montero and Jacob Murphy challenging him for a start now.
But this is a welcome selection dilemma for Darren Moore and he’ll be hoping to see the best out of his players as the season heads towards it’s finale in May.
His return is huge for West Brom.
Phillips has been excellent this season, and he could arguably be playing Premier League football.
He’ll be a crucial player for the Baggies, and could play a starring role in their promotion bid in this year’s campaign.
