Koren claims West Brom could pip Newcastle to Championship title

Dependent on other results, West Brom could clinch promotion from the Coca-Cola Championship on Monday but midfielder Robert Koren has his eyes on the title. But the Baggies believe they can catch leaders Newcastle and deny the Magpies the trophy glory.

Slovenia captain Koren told www.wba.co.uk: "I think the media have always talked about us or Nottingham Forest, but in our dressing room we wanted to put pressure on Newcastle to bring us through.

"And that's why we are where we are now.

"Perhaps with a bit of luck, we can get top spot and get the title.

"We are remaining focused to try and put pressure on Newcastle to see where we end up.

"The title is something we want.

"It's a big difference between first and second."
