West Brom   3 - 1   Derby

West Brom 3-1 Derby

West Brom 3-1 Derby

Chris Brunt scored a brace as West Brom came from behind to defeat Derby and move second in the Championship.

Following an uneventful first half, Derby took the lead early in the second period when Chris Porter slotted home after Paul Green's shot had been saved.

Gilles Sunu blazed over for the Rams but Brunt turned the game around with a low shot followed by a sharp finish after Derby failed to clear a corner.

Substitute Simon Cox fired into the corner to add gloss to the scoreline.


West Brom coach Eddie Newton:
"We know it will be a hard slog because everyone is fighting for something so there are no easy games left.

"We need to try and get away from Forest and keep putting Newcastle under pressure.

"We have to keep concentrating and take one game at a time. That is all you can do. It is in our hands at the moment and we will now try and get on a run."

Derby manager Nigel Clough:
"It is a nearly sort of performance again where we could have come away with the three points.

"We matched one of the best sides in the league, if not the best, for the majority of the game but don't have quite enough at the moment to see it through.

"There are grounds for encouragement in some ways but you have to get a point."
