Football Results: Birmingham 1-0 West Brom


Football Results: Birmingham 1-0 West Brom

Birmingham City dented West Brom’s playoff hopes as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. Lyle Taylor scored a penalty in the 67th minute for the only goal of the game. It was the first win for Birmingham over West Brom since 2006. Andy Carroll came on for the visitors but failed to cause too many issues as they failed to register a shot on target throughout the game.

Managers Reaction

Birmingham boss Lee Bowyer: “It wasn’t pretty. In the first half, both teams didn’t put two or three passes together and there was nothing in the game. They edged it in the first half without creating anything. In the second half, we did the same as them, we were on the front foot and were better with second balls. I like to look at the positives. We got a clean sheet, they’ve got a lot of players who can hurt you and we stood up to it.  I’m pleased and proud of the players. It’s been a long time since we beat West Brom so thankfully we’ve stopped that rot and it’s something the players can be proud of today.”

West Brom manager Steve Bruce: “It’s got to be the worst game of football I’ve seen in a long time. We didn’t possess any real quality on the top end of the pitch. We had some moments but it lacked quality on both sides. After being here for seven weeks, we go up and down. The reason why we’re in the middle of the pack in the Championship is because of that. We can play really well against Fulham and that’s my biggest disappointment, it’s not acceptable. For a team that should be, or supposed to be, at the top end, we go up and down far too often.”
