Baggies beat Watford, climb to 6th in EPL

Press Association logoPress Association 3/12/2016

It was business as usual for West Brom head coach Tony Pulis as his side continued their improved form with a 3-1 victory over Watford to climb up to sixth place in the Premier League.

The High Court this week ruled Pulis must pay former club Crystal Palace GBP3.7million ($A6.3 million). The 58-year-old must also pay costs and interest on the fine which comes from him walking out on the Eagles in 2014.

An expensive week might have felt even more costly had Watford repeated their win at The Hawthorns in last season's corresponding fixture but first-half strikes from Jonny Evans and Chris Brunt gave West Brom a cushion.

Christian Kabasele halved the deficit on the hour mark but Watford never really looked like snatching a point, and their cause was hindered further when Roberto Pereyra was sent off with six minutes remaining.

Matt Phillips sealed the points in injury time as West Brom won back-to-back home matches for the first time since March.
