After Leeds United’s 1-1 draw with Brentford on Tuesday night, a win against Reading would have taken West Brom six points ahead of their Championship title rivals, and Slaven Bilic’s side managed to get three points in the bag.

The Baggies had to come from behind to claim a 2-1 win at the Madejski Stadium as Matheus Pereira and Kyle Bartley got on the scoresheet to secure a huge victory for West Brom, putting themselves six points ahead of Leeds in the Championship table and firmly in the driving seat for Premier League promotion.
Can West Brom maintain their winning run?
The result made it three wins in a row for the Baggies following a poor start to 2020, but those former woes have now been long forgotten with lots of West Brom supporters taking to social media to celebrate the club’s huge win over Reading last night.
Here’s what plenty of West Brom fans had to say about the result on Twitter…
