West Brom returned to the top of the Championship with a relatively comfortable 2-0 win over struggling Stoke City at the bet365 stadium.

Goals from Matt Phillips and Hal Robson-Kanu were enough to secure three points and make sure that Albion leapfrog Leeds United, Swansea City and Preston North End into the top spot.

The game started perfectly for Albion as they got the lead in the 8th minute as Jake Livermore neatly slipped in Grady Diangana who swept the ball across the face of goal to be blasted in by Matt Phillips, who scored his sixth goal of the season.

The Baggies let the Potters back into the game but they were handed a 69th minute penalty as Cameron Carter-Vickers took out Grady Diangana in the box, which probably should have been a red card.

Robson-Kanu from the spot calmly rolled the ball into the net past Butland for his third goal of the season to make sure Slaven Bilic’s men returned to winning ways and returned to the summit, two points clear.
