West Brom beats winless Sheff U 1-0 for first victory in EPL


PTI, Nov 29, 2020, 10:36 AM IST

West Bromwich: It has taken 10 games, but West Bromwich Albion finally has a win in the English Premier League.

Sheffield United is still waiting for one.

West Brom squeezed out a 1-0 victory in a battle of the bottom two on Saturday, which proved enough to climb out of the relegation zone at least until Monday when Fulham plays Leicester.

Conor Gallagher cushioned a shot from the edge of the area into the bottom corner in the 13th minute after Sheffield United failed to clear a corner well.

The visitors started and finished better but continued to lack a cutting edge. The most glaring opportunities fell in stoppage time, when Rhian Brewster miss-hit a shot from the edge of the six-yard box that struck a West Brom defender, and fellow substitute Lys Mousset from even closer to the goal skied the rebound over the crossbar.

We have been desperate for a win this season. A game like this was where we needed to pick up points,” Gallagher said.

The last 10 minutes felt like an hour but the boys dug deep.”
