That was a massive result for the Baggies, perhaps even a statement result, as they won away to one of their key promotion rivals.
The Blades may have been found wanting when facing their promotion rivals all season, but after they had started so well, it was a huge performance from the Baggies to come back and deservedly take all three points.
Albion won at Ipswich a fortnight ago and it was the first time they had done so without either Rodriguez, Barnes, Phillips or Gayle scoring. The did it again tonight proving that the goals can come from anywhere.
46 goals from 22 games matches Mowbray’s promotion winning side and, game 22 in Megson’s first promotion season, Albion lost at home to Sheffield United. Friday evening’s result means that Moore’s team have more points than Megson’s 2001 team, but they are still five points behind his 2003 team!
