PHOTOS: West Bromwich Albion's worst moments of 2014

West Brom - The Hawthorns

We take a look at the moments West Bromwich Albion fans might like to forget from the last 12 months.

West Brom 3-3 Tottenham

This match could so easily have gone in the best moments, rather than the worst, but it is here for the simple fact that West Bromwich Albion lost a three-goal lead to drop two valuable points against Tottenham Hotspur.

Matej Vydra, Chris Brunt and Stephane Sessegnon scored before the interval to put the hosts in control, but a Jonas Olsson own-goal changed things slightly, and Harry Kane and Emmanuel Adebayor ultimately ensured Spurs took home a share of the spoils.

Aston Villa 4-3 West Brom

Another example of West Brom throwing away a lead, the Baggies lost 4-3 to fierce rivals Aston Villa after initially going 2-0 up in the first nine minutes.

By half-time it was 3-3 and Christian Benteke gave Villa the win in the second period, leaving West Brom to bemoan their failure to hold on to leads.

Bournemouth 2-1 West Brom

This season has not been one to write home about for the Baggies, but this was a particular low point with the Premier League side crashing out of the League Cup to Championship side Bournemouth.

West Brom failed to score themselves, with their goal in the 2-1 defeat coming courtesy of an own-goal from Tommy Elphick.

QPR 3-2 West Brom

Arguably the beginning of the end for Alan Irvine at The Hawthorns, West Brom lost 3-2 to fellow strugglers Queens Park Rangers despite – you guessed it – taking a 2-0 lead early on.

Joleon Lescott and summer signing Silvestre Varela scored for the visitors but a Charlie Austin hat-trick changed everything and saw the two sides go level on points.

Stoke 2-0 West Brom

The straw that broke the camel’s back was the 2-0 defeat to Stoke City, a match that proved to be Irvine’s final game in charge.

A seventh loss in nine games meant something had to change, and this match will always be remembered as sealing the fate of a man who deserved a little more luck than he got.
