Albion’s Promotion Challenge Season Comparison – 25 games

They left it late, but Albion did manage to score in every home league game of 2018 thanks to Chris Brunt’s effort that apparently deflected in off Wednesday’s David Jones.

For a change, Leeds did not produce a late comeback and Norwich conceded an injury time goal which meant that the point for the Baggies narrowed the gap with both clubs above them.

Tony Mowbray’s title winning team had one more point than Darren Moore’s side after 25 games, the only time this century that a Baggies team has had more points at this stage, and Big Dave takes his side to Mowbray’s current team on Tuesday looking to extend a nine match unbeaten run.
