West Brom battled back to earn a point against Reading in the Championship last night, and the Express and Star claims that Slaven Bilic told his players how proud he was at their efforts to come back from behind once again.

The Baggies went behind to the Royals after 71 minutes, before Kenneth Zohore scored a penalty in the 88th minute to level the scores.


West Brom have now come from behind in three of their four opening Championship games, and they sit in sixth spot in the table, having taken eight points from a possible 12.

And the Express and Star claims that Bilic made it clear just how proud he was of the efforts of his players after last night's game against Reading.

The Croatian will be desperate for his side to head into the two-week international break with back-to-back wins under their belts, but that won't be easy.

West Brom play away at Derby County at the weekend before playing host to Blackburn Rovers the following week, and both of those teams will represent really stringent tests for the Baggies.
