WBA star Romaine Sawyers makes promotion vow despite Swansea draw

West Brom midfielder Romaine Sawyers has insisted promotion is still in their hands, despite Saturday’s 0-0 draw against Swansea which caused Albion to concede top spot to Leeds United.

Sawyers returned to the side for the first time since he was sent off in West Brom’s 3-0 win over Bristol City last month. He helped his side dominate possession at the Liberty Stadium but Albion lacked a cutting edge up front – just one of their 10 shots were on target.

On the Championship table, Sawyers had this to say: “People are looking at everybody around us but we just have to focus on ourselves.

“It’s ours to lose shall we say. There is a gap there that we have created through our standards.”

West Brom sit second, six points clear of Fulham in third. The Cottagers failed to make up ground on the top two this weekend though, as they drew 1-1 with play-off hopefuls Bristol City.

 

“If we do our job it is irrelevant what anybody else does. We have got to keep focused on us and us only.”

Albion face Birmingham City on Saturday and will be looking to extend their impressive run against their West Midlands rivals; the Baggies are unbeaten in the last seven competitive meetings between the two, winning five and drawing two – including a 3-2 win at St Andrews in December.
