Revealed: Majority of West Bromwich Albion fans want Gayle back in the first XI

Dwight Gayle was one of West Bromwich Albion’s stellar summer additions following the club’s relegation to the Championship.

Darren Moore managed to recruit the striker from Newcastle United on a season-long loan deal.

Since making the move to The Hawthorns, Gayle has started 12 Championship games and has come off the bench in a further four.

In that time he has scored nine goals and registered one assist, but since suffering an injury against Derby County, the forward has had a spell away from the first XI.

In fact, Moore has kept faith with Hal Robson-Kanu and Jay Rodriguez during Gayle’s absence, but the striker has been included on the bench.

After earning a 2-1 victory over Swansea City in midweek, the Baggies head into this weekend’s action on the back of a three-game winning run in the second tier.
