‘They might get into play-offs’ – These West Brom fans assess Nottingham Forest’s promotion chances



West Brom and Nottingham Forest drew 2-2 at The Hawthorns on Saturday in what was a memorable and controversial clash between the promotion hopefuls. 

Heading into the game, the Baggies sat top of the table – having won three of their last three games, whilst Forest arrived on the back of a midweek defeat to Charlton.

It was the home side who opened the scoring when Callum Robinson netted his first goal for the club after arriving in January on loan from Premier League side Sheffield United.

Robinson’s goal was then cancelled out as Sammy Ameobi’s delightful cross was deflected in by Baggies defender Kyle Bartley.

The second-half continued to be as entertaining as the first as both sides looked to grab a winning goal.

And, it was the hosts who thought they had got that when Jake Livermore’s cross went in the back of the net off defender Tobias Figueiredo.

Despite their lead though, West Brom could do little about Matty Cash’s excellent late strike to see the points shared.

The game would then end with drama after the referee didn’t give a late goal for the Baggies, as Robinson’s effort looked to have crossed the line, although the officials gave offside against the home side.

Following the game, Football League World’s Ben Crump asked West Brom fans via Facebook group WE AM BAGGIES:Do you think Forest will get promoted this season after their performance v us on Saturday?” and below are some of the responses…
