sport news Preston 1-0 West Brom: Bruce on the brink after Riis' seventh minute strike ... trends now
West Brom paid a heavy price for starting yet another game slowly as defeat by Preston at Deepdale left them languishing in the Championship relegation zone, with just one win all season.
Before the game, under-pressure boss Steve Bruce described their unwanted record of going a goal down within the opening 15 minutes in eight of their last 11 games this season as ‘ludicrous’.
