Norwich loan officer Daniel Sinani sentenced the faltering West Brom championship contenders to a fourth consecutive loss.

The Terriers forward slid from close range to put Valérien Ismaël’s team eight points away from coveted automatic promotion spots.

The win means Town are five games without losing at Alfred Mcalpine Stadium.

Captain Jake Livermore also received a direct red card on a miserable afternoon for the visitors.

It was Albion’s high defensive line that showed their downfall when the Terriers ripped them apart early on.

Scott High threw a smart ball to free Danny Ward, who rolled the ball through the goal to allow Sinani a tap-in after just six minutes.

Harry Toffolo then threw a narrow left foot when the home team felt blood, and had it not been for a strong touch from Sorba Thomas they would have doubled their lead.

Albion was caught straight from goalkeeper Lee Nicholls clearance, and Sorba Thomas ran clear just for a hard hit to watch the opportunity disappear.

Defender Kyle Bartley was proving to be West Brom’s unlikely dangerous man, and the former Leeds defender had a succession of uncluttered efforts.

Albion settled into the game midway through the half, with Matt Phillips burning well and the hapless Cédric Kipré booked for a late entry to Sinani.

Matt Clarke squandered a great opportunity to equalize when he headed straight for Kipré and then saw his follow-up shot blocked by Matty Pearson.

As the pressure mounted on Town’s goal, Bartley again fired wide from a corner and then climbed higher to meet a cross from Conor Townsend, but his header went straight to Nicholls.

Exciting teen Taylor Gardner Hickman nearly dragged Albion to level after the break with an impressive volley that went wide.

However, as the visitors pressed, the gaps began to open and Ward should have sealed the victory for Town midway through the second half.

Scorer Sinani became a provider, setting out for Ward to approach an open goal from 10 yards.

Sub Fraser Richardson then ran through, but again Bartley eliminated the danger, before the Baggies’ hopes suffered yet another setback.

Captain Livermore, who endured a frustrating afternoon, was shown a direct red card for a high foot and the visitors dropped to ten.

Matt Clarke had one last chance, but his jump header flashed inches wide and Huddersfield held on for another home win.
