James Morrison was twice denied by the crossbar as West Bromwich
Albion was forced to settle for a 0-0 draw against West Ham in the
Premier League on Sunday, dashing its hopes of jumping into the
Champions League positions.
The hosts at least ended a run of three straight losses, but it
could have been much better had Morrison found the net instead of
the goal-frame with a flicked shot early in the second half and
then a header in the 74th.
West Ham’s best chances in a dire game fell to Winston Reid and
Gary O’Neil, but Sam Allardyce’s team will be happy to have come
away from the Hawthorns with a point.
West Brom stayed sixth, but the point moved the team level on
points with Everton.
