‘His worst game for us’ – Many West Brom fans react to player’s performance in Swansea defeat
Football League World
West Brom fell to only their second defeat of the season on Wednesday night after losing to Swansea City.
The Baggies travelled to South Wales having returned to winning ways in the Championship against Birmingham City last time out.
But Albion fell to their second defeat of the campaign – their second in three games – after producing a lacklustre performance at the Liberty Stadium.
Karlan Grant got Albion’s night off to the perfect start, with Callum Robinson squaring the ball for the forward to finish emphatically inside the first minute of the encounter.
But Swansea fought back, with Joel Piroe equalising on the hour mark. Piroe beat the offside trap before finishing calmly beyond Sam Johnstone.
On 83 minutes, the Swans turned the game on its head and found a late winner through Jamie Paterson, who netted his second goal in as many games,
Piroe intercepted Darnell Furlong’s poor back pass, playing in Paterson who poked the ball beyond Johnstone and into the net to nick the three points for Swansea.
That summed up a rather lacklustre performance from Furlong, who performed way below his usual standards and looked lethargic on the night.
