Grady Diangana equalised just before half-time when he fired in after Callum Robinson set him free.

- West Brom joy - Brentford, who missed a chance to go second when they lost at Stoke on Saturday, found themselves trailing when Barnsley's Callum Styles struck in the 40th minute.

Kenyan left-back Clarke Oduor came off the bench to score the victor as Barnsley beat Brentford 2-1 to ensure they remain in the English Championship in a match played at the Griffin Park in Brentford on Wednesday evening.

Clarke Oduor's stoppage-time goal snatched the three points for the Tykes, setting off celebrations in West Brom.

The centre-back was one of the stand-out performers for Rotherham in the 2018-19 season as he scored seven league goals in 46 appearances but his efforts were not enough to help the club avoid relegation.

"I thought Brentford would have pressure in today's game".

"I was very vocal when I said I would always like to manage in the Championship because it's especially hard".

The victory first meant that Barnsley survived relegation from the Championship on the final day of the season.

A win for Brentford would have sent it into the top division for the first time since 1947.

No wonder Brentford's Danish manager Thomas Frank said: "Football is 80 per cent suffering and 10 per cent".

Hull propped up the table after a 3-0 defeat at Cardiff City, while Luton Town stayed up thanks to a rallying 3-2 success at home to Blackburn Rovers, aided by two own goals.

Elsewhere at the Madejski Stadium in Berkshire, Kenyan global winger Ayub Timbe Masika was an unused substitute as Reading suffered a 4-1 loss to Swansea City.

Troubled Wigan are relegated following the end-of-season deduction of 12 points for going into administration earlier this month.

"I feel physically sick for everyone. But I think over the season we deserved to go up".

Former Croatia coach Slaven Bilic has led West Bromwich Albion back to the Premier League tonight.
