West Brom mind the gap

Newcastle kept up their impressive home record tonight with a 2-0 win over Nottingham forest.

In the end, the result means that Albion maintain a 9 point gap ahead of third place Forest, and even though this means that the Championship title is a little further away, automatic promotion is certainly closer.

Roberto Di Matteo`s men need ten points from their last six matches to guarantee promotion; with our superior goal difference perhaps nine points would be enough.

James Morrison said before the game: "Most people will see it as a big game and it`s definitely a big game for us.

"Forest are nine points behind us now and we don`t want them any closer, so I think a few of the lads will be sitting down in front of their televisions and cheering on Newcastle.

"I think most people would like to go up as champions because we`ve experienced it once, but if we go up in second place it`s still a great achievement. After getting relegated it`s not always easy to bounce straight back up.

"We just need to get that 'P` for promotion next to our name in the league table and then concentrate on pushing Newcastle all the way."

This victory takes Newcastle four points clear of Albion and with a game in hand, but really it is the gap between second and third that counts.
