Former West Brom striker Kevin Campbell has said that Baggies manager Slaven Bilic would have been feeling sickened after the weekend defeat to Tottenham.

The Croatian is coming under increasing pressure, with the Baggies failing to pick up a single Premier League victory so far this season.

A decent performance against Jose Mourinho’s Spurs side last weekend saw them come close to earning a draw but Harry Kane’s late strike consigned them to their latest defeat.

With the former West Ham defender reportedly under pressure to keep his job at The Hawthorns, Charlton Athletic manager Lee Bowyer has emerged as a potential replacement.

Looking at West Brom’s defeat to Spurs, former Baggies striker Campbell said that Albion were unfortunate to lose and insists that the 52-year-old is the right man for the job.

“I think Bilic is doing a good job,” Campbell told Football Insider. “They did not deserve to lose against Spurs at the weekend.

“It was the way that they scored which will be the real sickener for Slaven.

“It was a ball in the box that should really have been dealt with. When it does not get dealt with, the likes of Harry Kane will punish you.

“It really is a sickener for West Brom because they frustrated Spurs and at times they were in the ascendancy in the second half. One slip gave Spurs the three points.”

The international break could act as a good thing for Bilic in order to buy himself some more time.

The performance against Spurs was good for the most part and, if Bilic can instil a similar confidence and effort when his team are back in action, that vital win could finally arrive. An upcoming home clash against rock-bottom Sheffield United could provide the ideal opportunity to get that monkey off their back.
