West Brom’s hopes of staying in the Premier League took a big late blow as Keinan Davies scored a last-gasp equaliser in a 2-2 draw.

The Baggies remain in 19th after the draw, behind fellow strugglers Fulham. However, Sam Allarcyce’s side now sit nine points adrift of safety with five games left.

Both sides exchanged penalties in the first half, with Anwar El Ghazi putting Villa in front before Matheus Pereira responded.

In the second half, Mbaye Diagne’s deflected shot got the better of Emiliano Martinez.

Deep into second-half stoppage time, Davies popped up to snatch a late point for Dean Smith’s men, with West Brom hanging on.
