West Bromwich Albion’s hopes of automatic promotion will remain in their hands heading into the final game of the season, despite a shock 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield Town at The John Smith’s Stadium.

Goals from Chris Willock and Emile Smith-Rowe were enough to grab the Terriers three points and guarantee their Championship status despite an equaliser earlier on from Dara O’Shea.

Slaven Bilic made two changes to the side that drew 0-0 to Fulham, which saw Hal Robson-Kanu and Matt Phillips replace Charlie Austin and Kamil Grosicki.

The pressure clearly overwhelmed Albion throughout the game and within four minutes it showed, as they fell behind. 

A needless foul from Dara O’Shea allowed Juninho Bacuna to fizz a low delivery into the penalty area, which was poorly saved by Sam Johnstone and quickly snapped up by former Albion loanee Chris Willock.

The Baggies then responded towards the end of the first half in a fortunate manner with Matheus Pereira’s teasing free kick headed home from close range by Dara O’Shea, who appeared to be offside when the ball came into the box.

The pressure then ramped up from the Baggies in the second half with the Huddersfield keeper Lossl keeping out a strong effort from Pereira, who headed the rebound over the bar.

Callum Robinson then spurned the best chance of the evening as his close range effort was easily kept out by Lossl after some nice build up play by Pereira and Krovinovic.

However, in the final five minutes of the game, the hosts snatched a surprise victory after Lewis O’Brien’s bursting run was latched onto by Arsenal loanee Smith-Rowe, who sharply controlled and finished past Johnstone to condemn Albion to their seventh defeat of the season.
