“They’ve been higher than us all season and were flirting with going

West Brom Albion 0-0 Southampton: Saints battle to first-leg draw

By Total Football News

On a sun-kissed afternoon in the Black Country, fuelled by an outstandingly passionate atmosphere at kick-off time, Albion made a very lively start.

But it was quickly clear that, in such stifling conditions, they could not keep up that same sort of frenetic pace against a side as defensively well marshalled as Southampton.

By Total Football News

West Bromwich Albion manager Carlos Corberan is well aware of Sheffield Wednesday’s threat in Saturday’s trip to Hillsborough, despite their lowly league position.

Wednesday are deep in the Championship relegation battle, one point and a place above Birmingham City outside the bottom three.

Danny Rohl has reinvigorated the Owls’ season since arriving at the club in October as the youngest manager in the league, aged just 34, and Corberan
