Fulham received a wake-up call when West Brom produced one of the shock football results of the weekend in the Championship. Callum Robinson scored the only goal of the game in the 63rd minute. It was the first home win for the Baggies under new manager Steve Bruce. It was just the second defeat for Fulham and their first loss in 10 away games, the last being a 4-1 defeat to Coventry. Fulham failed to score for the first time this year with the last time they failed to do was late December.

Managers Reaction 

West Brom’s Steve Bruce: “We’ve taken seven points out of nine and now the pressure is on all of us at Bristol City on Saturday. Can we repeat that performance? Who knows?” There are probably too many teams chasing but we have to win at Bristol on Saturday before the international break. There have been a few harsh truths spoken. It was not acceptable and I think they realized that too with the performance against Swansea. You can get beaten but it’s the manner of it that counts and since then it’s been better. Maybe that was the low point. I hope it is anyway.”

Fulham’s Marco Silva: “It was not good enough. In the first half, we were not here – it was just our shirts on the pitch. I don’t want to be unfair on West Brom because they were the best team and they deserved to win. We didn’t express ourselves, and they did what we expected. Marek (Rodak) kept us in the game. In the second half, it was a little bit different. We had a big chance with Mitro where we should have equalized. I don’t believe the job is done. I’m sure the players are not thinking this way.”
