Romaine Sawyers progresses in EFL Football Manager Cup

23 April 2020

Albion midfielder Romaine Sawyers passed his first challenge on the virtual touchline confidently on Wednesday night, beating Coventry City 5-0 in the EFL Football Manager Cup.

The victory means Albion are through to the next round of the knockout tournament on computer game ‘Football Manager’, with the second-round draw to take place this Sunday, April 26.

After an impressive first half, in which Jake Livermore and Kamil Grosicki netted to put the e-Baggies two ahead, technical issues meant Coventry City manager Ryan Lawrence couldn’t access his tactics, causing the game to be temporarily halted.

However, after a short pause the match continued, playing the first 45 minutes of a new game as the second half - and Romaine’s men wrapped-up the tie in style.

Callum Robinson bagged a brace and Grosicki netted a second to confirm a 5-0 victory and a place in the second-round for Albion.
