West Brom’s hopes of ending the season on a positive note continued as they produced one of the narrow football results of the weekend in the Championship. In a drab affair, Karlan Grant scored the only goal of the game for the visitors in the 78th minute. They move up to 10th place on the league table despite being higher on the table for much of the early season. Reading on the other hand will finish the season just one place above the relegation zone despite having points deducted this season.
Reading’s Paul Ince: “I suppose it was a bit of an end-of-season game. It kind of had that feeling to it. It’s never nice when it’s your last game at home for the season. The fans came along to show their support and, when they do that, you want to try to get a good result for them. When you have two teams who are safe, I think that, subconsciously, it can all pan out that way.”
West Brom’s Steve Bruce: “I thought we were comfortable in the match. At the start, it was a bit like a testimonial. There was nothing really on the game and it was a nice sunny day. In the second half, we were also comfortable and maybe should have put the game to bed earlier. We’ve had three or four chances after we’ve gone 1-0 up. But there were a lot of things I was pleased with.”
