However, with no manager lined up as of yet, it seems like he will once again take the reins in the hope of proving it was not just a fluke.
His side does still sit in a precarious position, and with just one point separating them from a return to the relegation zone, they cannot rest on their laurels.
To ensure the best possible chance however, Beale must surely recall Karlan Grant to start instead of Brandon Thomas-Asante.
It seems like the former Salford City striker’s early-season form has dwindled and given the circumstances they would likely be best-served backing experience over the youthful unpredictability of the 23-year-old.
Not to mention the fact that Grant has scored four goals in the last two seasons of facing the Robins.
Once described by Steve Madeley as “pacy” and “ruthless” by Danny Cowley, it is the latter which will arguably be more important as they host a side just four points above them. It is a game they cannot afford to lose.
He is a proven goal scorer at this level, which is exactly what they need during this tumultuous period.
Beale must make the decision to maintain his formation which limited Reading, but trust that the quality from Grant will soon shine through. If he can start to get performances out of him, he could be the man to fire West Brom up the table very quickly.
