Boss Slaven Bilic insisted West Brom still hold the promotion advantage despite dropping points against Fulham.

The Baggies remain second in the Championship following a nervy 0-0 draw at The Hawthorns.

Albion will see their lead over third placed Brentford cut to a point if the Bees win their game in hand over Preston tonight.

Anthony Knockaert hit the bar for Fulham yesterday and Grady Diangana went close for the hosts and Bilic remained confident despite the draw.

"Everything is in our hands," he said, with Albion two points behind Leeds having played a game more. "We started the restart a bit slower, were a bit unlucky in first couple of games but after that, in last five games, we are creating and dominating.

"We are in good form, playing good football. That's where I have my optimism and belief.

"I'm very proud with the way we played. We defended well and in the second half we kept the shape and composure and created more than enough chances.

"We just couldn't score but the composure, mentality, passion and quality made me really proud. It would be better if we had won the game of course but it's one game less to go and it's in our hands."
