Coventry City 0-2 West Brom: Carlos Corberan’s Baggies ease to derby win

Jed Wallace lifts Grady Diangana to acclaim his second goal in successive matches
Albion skipper Jed Wallace was on hand to celebrate Grady Diangana’s second goal in successive matches

West Bromwich Albion climbed back into the Championship top six as they scored a goal in each half to win a Midlands derby against lacklustre Coventry City.

Grady Diangana put the Baggies ahead on 17 minutes when he slid home from close range after Coventry keeper Ben Wilson parried the ball to him.

Matt Phillips then brilliantly set up Brandon Thomas-Asante for a superb second goal as Albion went route one to finish off the hosts.

Coventry striker Haji Wright had earlier wasted a great chance to equalise when through on goal, but there was nothing else left in the tank from the Sky Blues as they slid to a third straight league defeat.

It leaves Mark Robins’ side still 20th, although only eight points behind fifth-placed Albion in table that remains tight.
