Ajayi Stars As West Brom Suffer Promotion Blow In Brentford Loss

Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi was on for the entire duration as West Bromwich Albion  suffered a slight setback in their quest for automatic promotion to the Premier League, following a 1-0 loss at Brentford in Friday night’s Championship game.




The game which was Ajayi’s 37th league appearance of the season  saw Brentford holding on to a 16th minute Ollie Watkins which was enough to separate both sides.


The defeat means West Brom are winless in back-to-back games since football returned in England with the baggies temporarily remaining on top with 71 points same as second-placed Leeds, who could jump to the top of the table with victory over visiting Fulham today.

This weekend games in the Championship will see seven round of fixtures left before the regular season ends.

Meanwhile in the Turkish 1st Lig  (second division), Shehu Abdullahi helped promotion hopefuls Bursaspor beat Adanaspor 1-0.

The Super eagles defender made his 28th league outing this season against Adanaspor and has scored four goals so far.

He was replaced with seven minutes remaining in the game which was Bursaspor’s 30th of the campaign with four games left to play.

Tayfur Bingol’s eight minute strike was enough to secure the win for Bursaspor who took part in their second game since football resumed in Turkey.

Bursaspor are third ( promotion play-off spot) on 49 points in the 18-team league table.
