Is the English Premiership Relegation Battle Over?
Is the relegation battle over now that Middlesbrough defeated West Brom yesterday?
Middlesbrough’s win moved them five points away from West Brom. Now Sunderland and Portsmouth look destined for the drop. The only question is whether West Brom or Birmingham will end up in that final third from bottom place. Only three points separates both sides.
Saturday, March 11 may be the day when we find out which of those clubs gets relegated. Birmingham play West Brom at 7am ET.
