West Brom continued their rich vein of form on Tuesday night by making it five wins from six, only bolstering their claim to lifting the Championship title at the end of the season.
The Baggies saw off yet another promotion rival, defeating Preston North End 2-0 at the Hawthorns, which opened up a ten-point gap to the playoffs before the expiry of tonight’s set of fixtures.
Albion’s recent form has left former Express & Star reporter Matt Wilson full of praise for Slaven Bilic’s outfit on Twitter, and even though he’s no longer in the journalism industry, he clearly still holds the west Midlanders close to his heart.
Ten points clear of third, having swept aside two play-off contenders in our slippers. 5 wins in 6, with players to return. New signings making an impact, squad players stepping up, and HRK playing like CR7. We’re on our way, that’s for sure… 😎

Wilson believes the Baggies are ‘on their way’ which would suggest he sees them having a very solid chance of earning promotion come the end of the season.
Hal Robson-Kanu bagged his tenth goal of the season, resulting in the ex-Albion journo claiming he is “playing like CR7” [Cristiano Ronaldo].
With 11 games to go, West Brom could get this one wrapped up early should they keep up this impressive form.
