Daryl Dike strikes late on to complete West Brom’s comeback win at Sunderland | Championship

West Brom’s substitutes came out on top as second-half goals from Tom Rogic and Daryl Dike secured a 2-1 victory over Sunderland at the Stadium of Light.

Sunderland took the lead in the first half when Amad Diallo scored from the penalty spot, but Albion manager Carlos Corberán made a number of changes in the second half, bringing on both Rogic and Dike in an attempt to turn things around.

Rogic equalized when he fired home from the edge of the area and Dike headed home a West Brom winner from Jed Wallace’s cross in the 83rd minute.

Sunderland already had one World Cup win at kick-off, having seen off Millwall nine days earlier, and the hosts began in confident fashion.

They were ahead inside the first 20 minutes, with Amad claiming his fifth goal in the last seven games. The Manchester United loanee won the own-kick via a slick one-two with Luke O’Nien creating space in the area and resulting in West Brom full-back Conor Townsend collecting him from behind.

With Sunderland’s regular penalty taker Ross Stewart still recovering from a long-term injury, Amad stepped up and confidently slotted his effort into the corner.

The Black Cats almost scored a second two minutes after breaking the deadlock, but while Ellis Simms’ flick released Alex Pritchard into the box, Albion keeper Alex Palmer was quick to save the midfielder’s shot.

Coventry have announced they have signed an agreement to continue playing home games at Coventry Building Society Arena that runs to the end of the season

Earlier this month, the Sky Blues were handed an eviction notice by Frasers Group, owned by former Newcastle owner Mike Ashley, which took over the stadium in November.

A statement on the club’s official website on Monday said: \”Coventry City Football Club is pleased to confirm that it has signed a new licence agreement with Frasers Group in order for the club to continue to play home games at the Coventry Building Society Arena.

\”This represents a positive step forward for the club and its fans and we now look forward to establishing a constructive working relationship with Frasers Group.

\”The licence that we have today signed will run until May 2023 and is subject to EFL approval, which we expect to be granted on Tuesday. Coventry City will now commence amicable talks with Frasers Group with a view to agreeing a longer-term licence for the club to play at the Arena.\”

Prior to Frasers Group’s takeover, Coventry had an agreement, signed in March 2021, to play at the ground running to 2031. The Sky Bet Championship outfit last Monday said they had received the eviction notice and been told they must agree a new licence, having previously believed the existing terms would continue unchanged following the Frasers Group takeover.

Frasers Group said that before acquiring the stadium it had issued a new licence mirroring the terms Coventry had agreed with the old owners, that the club chose not to sign it at that time, and that a revised proposal and new licence had been issued.

Thank’s for your feedback.

West Brom hadn’t created a chance at that stage, but the visitors felt they should have played against 10 men shortly after the half-hour mark.

Danny Batth conceded possession to John Swift deep in his own half and reacted by pulling the Baggies back to prevent him breaking free. Swift and his teammates demanded a straight red card, but referee James Linington chose to show a yellow instead.

The visitors continued to press after the break and came close to equalizing eight minutes into the second half. Matty Phillips met Swift’s low cross from the right with a first-time effort from the edge of the six-yard box, but Sunderland goalkeeper Anthony Patterson denied him with a save.

West Brom were the dominant side in possession for much of the second half, but as Townsend pounced on a loose ball after O’Nien cut a through ball, he fired a first-time effort wide.

Patterson tipped Rogic’s long-range shot over the bar as West Brom continued to press, but the Sunderland goalkeeper was unable to prevent an equalizer with 20 minutes remaining. Wallace’s cross was cleared into Rogic’s path, and the Australian pulled home a first-time effort from the edge of the 18-metre area.

West Brom scored their second with seven minutes remaining thanks to another of their substitutes. Wallace swung over a cross from near the right touchline and the onrushing Dike powerfully headed home.
