WBA can reduce the deficit on Leeds to just a point against Sheffield Wednesday after Marcelo Bielsa’s side were held to a draw by lowly Luton

West Bromwich Albion have been given renewed hope in their Championship title bid after Leeds United slipped up against Luton Town.

Leeds were held to a 1-1 draw against the division’s basement boys in a shock result at Elland Road on Tuesday night.

The Whites required a Stuart Dallas equaliser to earn a share of the spoils after Hary Cornick had given Luton an unlikely lead.

Leeds could have opened up a six-point advantage on Albion with a win but the Baggies can now reduce the deficit on first place to just one point if they beat Sheffield Wednesday.

Slaven Bilic’s side are in action at Hillsborough in a 7:45pm kick off on Wednesday evening.

And West Brom fans think Leeds’ setback is just the motivation their side need as they aim to secure their first win since the reason restarted.

One said on social media: “A point for Leeds is the inspiration we needed. 3 points tomorrow a MUST, no excuses. No “we tried hard”, “onto the next game”, “we were unlucky”. 3 points only.”

“Leeds fail to beat 24th placed Luton Town, meaning they’re still very much within Albion’s reach,” another pointed out. “Leeds United – 75 points (27 GD). West Brom – 71 points (26 GD). We face Sheffield Wednesday tomorrow…”

A third said: “If the Leeds Luton result doesn’t light the fire for Albion tonight, god knows what will.”

“Well out of despair comes hope,” added another supporter. “Win tomorrow and within a point of Leeds and all to play for, if that result doesn’t motivate us for tomorrow then not sure anything can. But we will turn up, we will be counted and we will get this bandwagon rolling again.”
