West Brom compound Bolton misery as league's top scorers climb to third

But Bolton threatened an equaliser with Sam Johnstone making terrific saves to deny Sammy Ameobi and Jason Lowe as Albion kept just a fourth clean sheet in the league.

West Brom were denied a penalty when Mason Holgate’s cross struck Andrew Taylor’s arm while Dwight Gayle clipped the bar. The substitute Field, on for the injured Brunt, clinched victory by scoring his second first-team goal after a defence-splitting pass from Rodriguez.
