match played in Bristol that ended in a 1-1 draw.

Championship. All the wins came at The Hawthorns.

Two goals in four minutes gave
Bristol City a welcome and surprise win over promotion-chasing
West Brom. Graham Dorrans put the visitors in front when he found space in the box
to fire low past Dean Gerken. But City levelled when Lee Johnson's corner was
helped on by Louis Carey and Chris Iwelumo stabbed home. The home side went in
front when the lively Danny Haynes ran at
West Brom's defence and crossed
for Johnson to finish from close range. Johnson has only just returned from a
loan spell at Derby and provided a telling contribution to help ease the
pressure on his father and manager Gary. It was only their second win in 12
games and could prove a crucial one - helping them move eight points clear of
the drop zone and just seven behind Leicester, who currently lie sixth in the
final play-off spot. The defeat for
West Brom could prove equally important on a weekend when they
slipped out of the automatic promotion places.
They had looked well on course for a ninth away win of
the season at half-time, with Dorrans capitalising on some sloppy play at the
back to fire the Baggies into the lead with his 13th goal of the season.
But struggling City showed
plenty of fight and a no shortage of quality to turn the game on its head early
in the second half. The equaliser was a scrappy one, with Johnson's corner
hitting Carey and falling kindly for the unmarked Iwelumo in front of goal and
he scored his first since arriving on loan from Wolves. But the winning goal
was finely crafted by Haynes, whose pace and willingness to run at defenders
made it a tough afternoon for Baggies full-back Joe Mattock. The winger drove
into the box and picked out Johnson at the back post to apply the finishing
touch. Substitute Andwele Slory wasted a great chance to level when he miscued a
chance in front of goal. But although
West Brom threw men forward in the latter stages, with Roman Bednar
having a couple of late half-chances to salvage a point and extend their
unbeaten run to 11 games, the hosts held on for a deserved win.
Albion boss Tony Pulis spent six months as City boss between July 1999
and January 2000.
Albion goalkeepers Ben Foster and Boaz Myhill both spent spells on
loan at Ashton Gate in 2002, Foster from Stoke City and Myhill from Aston Villa.
