West Brom   3 - 2   Blackpool

West Brom 3-2  Blackpool

West Brom 3-2 Blackpool

Graeme Dorrans
Dorrans scored his 14th goal of the season from the penalty spot

West Brom closed the gap on league leaders Newcastle as a controversial late penalty from Graeme Dorrans gave them victory over Blackpool.

In-form Blackpool took the lead through Charlie Adam's long-range strike before Ishmael Miller levelled for West Brom.

Robert Koren put the Baggies ahead with a superb drive but Blackpool substitute Brett Ormerod headed an equaliser.

Dorrans scored the winner from the spot, though it appeared Giles Barnes had been tripped just outside the box.

The result was the second time that West Brom have claimed a 3-2 victory over Blackpool courtesy of a Dorrans penalty.

And it means the Tangerines remain just outside the play-offs in seventh place, two points behind sixth-place Cardiff.

But it was a good day for the Baggies, who are now only four points behind Championship leaders Newcastle following their 2-2 draw at Middlesbrough

Di Matteo's men are also five points clear of third-placed Nottingham Forest, who fell to a 3-2 defeat at Preston.


West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo:
"Graeme is quite a composed person when it comes to taking penalties and he is quite cool.

"We are in a good position now but there are still so many games left to play. I will just settle for promotion whether it is automatic, play-offs, whatever it is.

"But as you could see against Blackpool, every game is tough to win. Blackpool played some excellent football and they made it very difficult for us."

Blackpool boss Ian Holloway:
"It was a foul but Giles Barnes said to Joe Martin that it was outside the box. But he gave it, so you have to get on with it.

"We showed terrific belief to come back from 2-1 down against a very good side and I thought we looked a good side as well.

"I think that games should be played by both sides looking to win the match, not shut up shop looking to nick it, and that is that is what we did."
