West Brom battled their way to a great 1-0 win over Brighton on Saturday afternoon to once again kickstart their Premier League survival bid.

It was disappointment after the Baggies somehow failed to beat Burnley the previous week, but this win made is four points from two and consecutive clean-sheets.

The Albion are currently nine points from safety, but Newcastle and Fulham both failed to win over this weekend in the Premier League.

Adrian Goldberg shared a poll on his personal Twitter account on Sunday evening, asking Baggies fans about their hopes for survival.

In a snapshot of some fans, 68.8% of the group believed that there is no chance of Sam Allardyce masterminding an escape once again.

Well, it appears as though the three points on Saturday have done much to change our minds in the hunt for survival.

This is the best the Baggies have looked all season, and we can’t believe the huge impact that three loan signings have made.

Okay Yokuslu, Mbaye Diagne and Ainsley Maitland-Niles have transformed our fortunes, and the likes of Kyle Bartley have responded to that magnificently.

This is a realistic view on the matter.

The board simply could have left things too late, and they should have taken action sooner and brought in this calibre of player during the summer, although some of that blame could also go to Slaven Bilic.

  1. we still have a very slim chance of staying up, but the thing is apart from the opening 15 minutes of the Brighton game we were second best in everything we did. It is only down to Brighton woeful finishing and some bizarre refereeing that we ended up with the 3 points. We have to do much better in possession of the ball and not keep passing to the opposition. Sadly Fulham are playing really well at the moment and I can see them staying up so the chances are we have to accumulated enough points to pass possibly Newcastle and Brighton. I can’t see that happening

  2. I think your right. We got lucky and on reflection should have lost. Three or four performances to be proud of but I just can’t see us beating Everton. There”s a chance against Newcastle with their injuries to the players that have the ability to bury us.
    Although it would be good for us a win would actually help Fulham and Brighton more.
