#AlbionAdvent: Brunt celebrates promotion

7 December 2015

Day Seven of our Christmas Advent Calendar

It’s a goal which was recently voted one of Chris Brunt’s best by Baggies fans.

By his own admission he’s scored better.

Southampton keeper Richard Wright will also feel he could have saved the Northern Ireland international’s low strike from the edge of the area.

But Brunt’s goal brought jubilant scenes to The Hawthorns as it effectively sealed promotion back to the Premier League.

It moved Tony Mowbray’s men three points clear of third-placed Hull - with superior goal difference also separating the two sides going into the last day of the season.  

The Baggies need not have worried.

A 2-0 win at QPR on the final day - with Brunt netting a spectacular free-kick - saw Albion claim the Championship title and return to the top flight.
