West Brom fans laud Nathan Ferguson after scoring his first goal for the club

Championship Picks

West Brom extended their unbeaten run in the Championship to a ninth straight game as they defeated Queens Park Rangers 2-0 in Saturday’s early kickoff.

Versatile defender Nathan Ferguson, who continued to deputise at left-back having begun the season on the other side of defence, opened the scoring in the second half with a sublime solo goal.

He carried the ball all the way from his own half before striking from 25 yards out in front of the Baggies’ support.

Matheus Pereira doubled the lead with less than ten minutes to go by firing home a low freekick, taking advantage of QPR centre-back Yoann Barbet’s red card.

Albion’s academy graduate picked up the Man of the Match award for his performance and also earned glowing plaudits from the travelling faithful.

One supporter believed the 18-year-old was unbelievably good again while another claimed that if Aaron Wan-Bissaka was worth £50m last summer then their full-back is worth ten times that – at £500m.

Several fans want Ferguson to sign a new contract as soon as possible with one pleading that he is signed up long-term.

Here’s the best of the reaction:
