West Bromwich Albion remain the side to catch in the Sky Bet Championship at the moment but they are certainly starting to open the door wide for those just below them.
They and Leeds United were running away with the top two spots and seemed to be in their own battle for the title – guaranteed to be in the Premier League next season.
However, the Championship very rarely allows for sides to run away with things and so that looks to have happened again with the pair now just a handful of points clear.
West Brom are still in a good position but much more stumbling and they will be then playing catch up.
Romaine Sawyers, then, has looked to assure fans that they are still up for the fight but it remains to be seen whether or not that proves accurate, with supporters having plenty to say in response:
Time to prove it on the pitch now!

Midfield has disappeared. Teams are now showing up with a brick wall defence and asking questions of our attacking style and skills. Still hopeful but we need something new. More creativity, more energy. Come on boys, wake up. You're still top with everything to play for!

We’ve been hearing this since we lost to Middlesbrough, things need to change, playing pereira on the left is a waste, formation isn’t working, where’s plan B? It’s vital we get a left back and left winger abs and maybe a midfielder and striker, just to give us all a boost! #wba

Stop talking and start performing "The Albion Boy".

Would help if you stepped in from midfield rather than going sideways, look unreal when you step in, look like an average championship player when you go sideways or backwards.
