The Championship side won with a goal from Britt Assombalonga, which saw them win their second consecutive match.
Their victory saw them move to the seventh position on the table, one place adrift the promotion play-off.
“I think the first half was a really good game.”
“Maybe we could have killed it with one or two more goals.”
“But we had to dig deep, it was one of those where we didn’t play really well but the guys put in a shift and we got the three points,” Mikel Obi told the club’s website.
