West Brom defeated Leeds 4-2



West Bromwich beat Albion League Leaders United by one point, beating Hull City 4–2 in a thrilling match at the second-tier championship at Hawthorn on Sunday.


Leeds topped 78 points with a 3–1 win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday, while West Brom's win was 77 in five games.

Slaven was worked by Hull on Bilic's Albion side and had to take the lead three times before the sealing victory, the losers were one step above the charged area.

West Brom's Charlie Austin celebrated his 31st birthday in style and cheated across and threw the ball home in the fourth minute when goalkeeper Sam Johnstone failed to clean up before Kevin Stewart equalized from a corner 20 minutes later.

Home defender Ahmed Hegazi took a 2–1 lead before the break, powering a header home from one corner for his first goal in almost two years.

In the second half, Hull equalized for three minutes through Mallick Wilkes, but West Brom did not celebrate a minute later with Camille Graski scoring with his former club.

Alternatively, Grady Dylanaga put the last goalkeeper George Long on his dance shoes 4-2, killing two defenders from the edge of the area and giving West Brom some breathing space.

But when the hosts lost a second yellow card for a foul on Wilkes during the match, the hosts suffered a setback. The center-back will lose the game at home to Derby County on Wednesday.

Earlier, Swansea City maintained their hopes of staying in the playoff position, beating Sheffield 2–1, scoring the second half with Ryan Brewster and Andre Aliyev.

They are now eighth with 60 points, four behind fellow sixth-placed Welsh club Cardiff City.

Queens Park Rangers won the first-half lobe 1-0 from Jordan Hugill at third-bottom Middlesbrough, who had 44 points and was one point outside the safety zone.
