Super Eagles defender, Semi Ajayi and his West Brom teammates has been warned by manager Slaven Bilic that the pressure to gain promotion will only grow following their 4-2 victory over Hull City.

Former Southampton striker Charlie Austin, Ahmed Hegazi, Kamil Grosicki and Grady Diangana scored in the Baggies win as they go one point behind Leeds United on the Championship log.

Hegazi was sent off in stoppage time after two yellow cards while Ajayi was benched for 90 minutes.

Bilic said: “The teams who are below us, Brentford, Fulham and Forest are doing well but they are hoping. We have to cope with the pressure. We wouldn’t swap with them and we have to cope with it. The pressure will only get bigger. It doesn’t mean we would swap with them.

“We have to continue being brave and relax in a positive way. Today was a game to enjoy. It was a very frantic match, the stage is frantic. It was a very open game, we didn’t want it to be open when they were getting the ball.

“On the ball we were excellent but they put us under pressure with a very simple way of football. We were a little afraid they were going to hurt us. We are back on track and I’m really pleased with that.”
