LONDON: Relegation-threatened West Bromwich Albion fought back to claim a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers on Monday but failure to win the match at The Hawthorns moved them closer to dropping out of the Premier League.
Mbaye Diagne equalised for the home side after Fabio Silva had handed Wolves the halftime lead in a Black Country derby that was hampered by belting rain and swirling wind.
The point moved second-from-bottom West Brom to 26 points, still 10 away from the safety zone with only four games remaining.
Wolves remained in 12th spot with 42 points in a much improved performance after a 4-0 home thumping from Burnley in their last outing.
