West Brom emerged 3-2 victors over QPR on Tuesday with a dramatic, injury-time winner from Jake Livermore enough to ensure the Baggies took all three points from Loftus Road and crept to within one point of third-place Leeds.
The Whites have somewhat fallen off in recent weeks having lost their lead at the top of the Championship to Norwich and are now level on points with Sheffield United, although they have a game in hand.
Marcelo Bielsa’s men host Bolton on Saturday and they will be hoping to climb back into pole position, although West Brom’s win means the title race has surely become a four horse race now, making life that little bit more difficult for Leeds.

The Yorkshire outfit cannot afford to drop many more points if they want to secure automatic promotion and they square off with both the Baggies and the Blades in the next month in what will be six-pointers.

Its a very simple equation…. Leeds win all their games we win the league. Its in our hands. Time for glassware to be half full. We play great football with the best manager in the world in charge. We are going to do this. I know it. In Bielsa we trust #Mot

Looking at the next few matches it’s just a matter taking points where it matters – it genuinely is just up for grabs now and we’re still the best team in this league – just got to get it together man! #mot #lufc
