Carlos Corberan’s West Brom team comfortably held a 2-0 lead, leaving the opposing team struggling to make any significant impact on the match. Despite the apparent dominance, an opportunity to secure a 3-0 lead was missed when Phillips failed to convert from within the six-yard area. This would have effectively sealed the game for Ipswich.

Jed Wallace, with his fourth assist of the season, saw his contribution go unrewarded as Phillips’ attempt went wide. The game analysis on Sky Sports by Hinchcliffe highlighted the miss, attributing it to Phillips’ choice to use the outside of his right boot, suggesting that a different approach could have resulted in a goal.

Reflecting on the situation, Hinchcliffe stated that West Brom should have been “out of sight” with a 3-0 lead. Fortunately for Phillips, Ipswich’s lack of a comeback meant that the miss became a lighthearted moment rather than a cause for significant regret.

Despite the missed opportunity, West Brom secured a 2-0 victory over Ipswich, with goals from Darnell Furlong and Grady Diangana. This win propelled West Brom into the coveted playoff positions, marking it as one of the crucial three points of the season. The victory underscored West Brom’s strong intent for promotion, even in the face of formidable opponents in the division, such as Leicester City, Ipswich, Leeds United, and Southampton. The team remains confident and aims to capitalize on every opportunity to maintain pressure on other promotion hopefuls.
