(EFE) – Brighton, who missed two penalties, was defeated by The Hawthorns, where West Bromwich met again with the victory (1-0) to feed their hopes of permanence in the Premier.
Sam Allardyce’s West Bromwich had not won since January 16 when they beat Wolverhampton. Seven days without adding the three points that have anchored him in the penultimate position, in the relegation zone.
He broke his losing streak with a goal from Kyle Bartley headed to a pass from Connor Gallagher and thanks to the mistake of his rival from eleven meters. Brighton was able to draw twice. First after a hand from a local defender. The German Pascal Gross failed.
Then, in the second half, after a foul inside the area by Conor Townsend. It was Danny Welbeck who missed from eleven meters.
Between both actions, the VAR annulled a goal to the visitors signed by Lewis Dunk within half an hour. The Brighton footballer took a free kick but the referee overruled it because he had not given the service signal and did not go up to the scoreboard.
West Bromwich are now eight points behind a save that Brighton has yet to secure.
