Beattie strike sinks Baggies

20 October 2009 10:03
Craig Beattie came back to haunt Coca-Cola Championship leaders West Brom by grabbing the only goal of a low-key encounter to secure a shock 1-0 victory for Swansea.

The Glasgow-born striker only managed four league goals during two injury-hit years at Albion, two of which came back in August before becoming the Swans' record signing later that month.

But with his second goal in as many games, he sent the Baggies to their third defeat in five games, although they remain top of the table courtesy of Newcastle's defeat at Scunthorpe.

Beattie lit up a poor clash with the only goal in the 50th minute, latching onto Mark Gower's pass to strike a low effort past Scott Carson and extend Swansea's unbeaten run to seven matches.
