West Bromwich - West Bromwich Albion continued their improved form with a 3-1 victory over Watford on Saturday to climb up to sixth place in the Premier League.

Jonny Evans jumped highest inside the six-yard box to head his team in front from Chris Brunt's corner after 16 minutes.

Brunt's long-range strike from a free kick struck Juan Zuniga and the ball rolled into the net in the 34th.

Christian Kabasele halved the deficit on the hour mark but Watford didn't look like snatching a point, and saw Roberto Pereyra sent off with six minutes remaining.

Matt Phillips sealed the points in injury time as West Brom won back-to-back home matches for the first time since March. They have three wins and a draw in their last four league matches.

Watford are 10th, two points behind West Brom.
