West Brom ensured they stayed top of the Championship for the next two weeks as they beat Hull City 1-0 at the KCOM Stadium in a hard fought game.

The game was on a knife edge as both teams had great chances to score but it was the Baggies who scored the only goal of the game, from former Hull man Jake Livermore who smashed the ball into the top corner from the edge of the box in the 28th minute.

Before that, Kamil Grosicki put wide a glorious chance after being slipped through in acres of space from 12 yards out.

After Albion’s opener, Josh Bowler’s cross was deflected by Jake Livermore and it fell into the path of Jackson Irvine, who diverted the ball towards goal, but Sam Johnstone made a terrific reflex save to palm it into the path of Jarred Bowen who tapped the ball in the net but he was offside.

The Baggies should have really grabbed a second goal with 10 minutes remaining as Grady Diangana dragged his shot wide after being put through by Romaine Sawyers.

Unfortunately, both Romaine Sawyers and Jake Livermore will be out for the visit of Sheffield Wednesday in two weeks time as they have both collected 5 yellow cards after each were booked in the win.
