West Bromwich Albion were given home soil advantage for today’s Good Friday Championship clash with Hull City at The Hawthorns.

With Jimmy Shan safe in the knowledge he’s in position until the summer on an interim basis, he was joined in training this week by Steven Reid and three points today would top a semi-decent week for the side after all the recent hoopla.

Kieran Gibbs opened the scoring minutes before the halftime break and the second 45 were certainly interesting.

Hull came out the blocks and Todd Kane gave them the advantage with a quick brace but after the hour mark the game turned our way again and Dwight Gayle helped himself to a brace to secure all three points and a 3-2 victory.

It should’ve been a hattrick really but another effort was cleared off the line.

Speaking to the BBC following the final whistle, Shan said of the match.

“Dwight has had two clinical finishes. When he had a dry patch I spoke about how important a player he is for us with his work ethic and appetite. He’s got a great attitude and his scoring record this season has been fantastic. He is a key player but I’m looking at our squad as a whole, they’re all key players and hopefully they will all contribute to this being a successful season.”
