It looks like it’s going to be one from the play-offs that joins West Brom and Leeds United in the Premier League next season, judging by the current state of play in the Championship.
The Whites and the Baggies have set a fine pace so far in the second tier and have opened up a serious gap to the likes of Fulham and Bristol City in the play-off places.
They’ll both need to keep their respective feet down on the peddle, though, and Slaven Bilic will be looking to get the most out of his side with them currently leading the way.
The Baggies’ boss has been more than willing to mix things up and play the youngsters if needed to keep getting results and he is bound to have had an interest in the young side’s recent game with Manchester United – though they did end up losing.
Let’s take a look at the reaction from Baggies fans to the result:
Had the game on MUTV, we were brilliant in the first half, They made a tactical tweaks at the break and it won them the match, there midfield was out running ours and we had no answer. The few chances we did get including the penalty we just didn’t take well enough, onto Reading
