Strugglers West Brom and Newcastle share goalless draw

Newcastle United's Irish defender Ciaran Clark (L) vies with West Bromwich Albion's Senegalese striker Mbaye Diagne (R) during the English Premier League football match between West Bromwich Albion and Newcastle United at The Hawthorns stadium in West Bromwich, central England, on March 7, 2021.

West Brom and Newcastle battled to a goalless draw at the Hawthorns that will do little to ease either side's Premier League relegation fears.

The Magpies had the better opportunities in a game lacking attacking fluency, but West Brom goalkeeper Sam Johnstone was alert to deny Jonjo Shelvey and Joe Willock either side of half-time.

Mbaye Diagne had the best chance for the Baggies when his header was tipped behind by Martin Dubravka, while Matt Phillips fired over when well placed early in the second half.

The draw means West Brom stay 19th and are now eight points from safety. Newcastle move above Brighton into 16th, four points clear of the bottom three.
