West Bromwich Albion supporters were given a game to really forget last night when they fell to a 1-0 defeat at home to Stoke City despite the fact they could have extended their lead at the top of the table by three points after Leeds United lost to QPR on Saturday.
9’ | Albion 0-1 Stoke.
Goal. The visitors lead through Campbell.

The Potters turned up and overcame the Baggies 1-0 at The Hawthorns, taking the lead early on through a Tyreese Campbell goal, and from then on out the fans were left frustrated as Jack Butland and co played a blinder for the travelling side in Stoke’s own third.
The fans, though, after conceding the goal found themselves slamming both Ahmed Hegazi and Conor Townsend for their parts in the goal, and it seems that the fans are more worried than ever that they could be set to bottle their promotion push.
Will Slav guide West Brom back to the Premier League?
You can read the Baggies’ thoughts on the goal here:
Hegazi is a nightmare waiting to happen yet again, standard clearance messed up and his lack of pace always an issue, never understand why he is rated by so many personally

Townsend should be no where near the starting XI

Oh dear it’s not going well, in fact it’s a bit poor to be honest. Plenty of possession but not actually doing much with it. COYB.

Hegazi at fault again….. never confident when he’s in the team.

Hagazi liability hopeless

The Baggies are desperate to arrest this slump in form, although it seems that they may have to wait a little bit longer for a win.
