MILLWALL BEAT LACKLUSTRE WEST BROM

Championship review from weekend 29th of January featuring West Brom and Millwall



One of the biggest headlines from the Championship this weekend was West Brom losing again, this time to Millwall 2-0. Valerian Ismael is under pressure from Baggies fans as he rated at just 4.24. West Brom have now won just one of their last seven matches. However, Millwall put in a dominant display as Mason Bennett and Benik Afobe scored the goals as the duo rated at 7.74 and 6.99 respectively. The West Brom defence couldn’t deal with them as shown by centre-backs Cedric Kipre and Matthew Clarke getting disappointing 4.49 ratings.  

Hull City have a new owner in Acun Illicali and he surprisingly sacked popular manager Grant McCann while the team were in form replacing him with the unknown to English fans Shola Arveladze. However, he got off to the perfect start as the Tigers defeated Swansea 2-0. Target man striker Tom Eaves and talented youngster Keane Lewis-Potter both scored early goals which proved to be enough for Hull to get a big three points. Eaves got a 7.98 rating and Lewis-Potter a 6.98.  
On Sunday, Derby fans staged a protest ahead of their match versus Birmingham against the situation the club finds itself in having had 21 points deducted. In the game, Birmingham were cruising two goals ahead at half-time. Scott Hogan scored one of the goals but missed another two big chances therefore earning just a 5.98. This allowed Derby a chance to get back into the match that they took. Luke Plange, 7.48, scored before Krystian Bielik, 7.48, hit a stunning bicycle equaliser in the 97th minute to rescue a point and spark incredible celebrations at Pride Park. Derby boss, Wayne Rooney, is earning much managerial praise as he rated highly again at 7.48. Rooney revealed earlier in the week he rejected an approach to take charge of his former club Everton.  

We’d like to offer our condolences to the family and friends of Fulham fan Paul Parish who passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest while watching his team at Craven Cottage.
