West Bromwich Albion manager Slaven Bilic saw his side dig in deep and battle for all three points in Saturday’s Championship clash with Sheffield Wednesday.
Having opened the scoring through Hal Robson-Kanu ten minutes into the tie, the second half was tale of penalties as the visitors equalised from the spot just ahead of the hour mark, before Charlie Austin took his chance from 12 yards to send all the points our way and maintain our position in top spot.
Statistics website Whoscored more than edged the player ratings our way and their star man award went to Mats Pereira with a score of 7.74 for Man of the Match.
Completing the top five best performers in their system were Kyle Bartley (7.57), on loan West Ham United starlet Grady Diangana (7.39), Hal Robson-Kanu (7.10) and Semi Ajayi (7.02).
With results elsewhere meaning we didn’t extend our advantage over the two point gap to Leeds United, we have opened up more of a buffer on third placed Preston North End, which shouldn’t be sniffed at.
