West Brom took another huge stride towards automatic promotion from the Coca-Cola Championship with a comfortable 3-0 victory over a Leicester side in freefall.

In-form Albion are now 12 points clear of third-placed Nottingham Forest, who only have another 18 left to play for, and could even be promoted on Easter Monday should results go their way.

Having seen Jonas Olsson's header clip a post, James Morrison fired the home side into the lead with a sweetly struck half volley - making him the 19th different scorer in the club's league campaign.

Robert Koren doubled the advantage in first-half injury-time as the Foxes failed to see off a Chris Brunt ball into the box.

And Koren grabbed his second and Albion`s third late on as he latched onto a Morrison through-ball and rounded Chris Weale before tapping into an empty net.

It was an unhappy return to The Hawthorns for former West Brom assistant and caretaker manager Nigel Pearson, whose side enjoyed a lot of the ball but only registered their first shot on target in the 82nd minute.
