West Brom's faltering push towards the Premier League stalled again on Friday when they lost to promotion rivals Brentford for the first time since 1948.

Ollie Watkins's 23rd goal of the Championship season allowed Brentford to move into third place, five points behind West Brom and Leeds who currently occupy the two automatic promotion spots.

Brentford struck the only goal at Griffin Park on 16 minutes when Watkins scored from close range after good approach work from Tariqe Fosu, Josh Dasilva and Said Benrahma.
