West Brom fans on Twitter were not happy after their side conceded a late goal to draw 1-1 with struggling Brentford at the Hawthorns on Monday evening, and Manchester City loanee Tosin Adarabioyo took plenty of criticism.
The Baggies missed a hatful of chances in the first-half and had 23 shots on the night, but they didn’t break the deadlock until the 77th minute through loanee Harvey Barnes.
The Leicester youngster took his tally for the season to eight as he fired in a rebound from 12 yards. The West Midlands side were left to regret their poor finishing though as Brentford substitute Lewis Macleod headed in a late equaliser in stoppage time.

The 24-year-old drifted into the Baggies box almost unnoticed, and many West Brom fans felt that it should have been Adarabioyo’s job to pick him up. The 21-year-old was playing out of position at right-back again though, and Scotsman Macleod ended up with a free header that he powered past Sam Johnstone in the West Brom net.
Check out some of the tweets in reaction to Adarabioyo’s mistake and performance.
Where was Tosin in terms of marking? So harsh given our dominance in the first half

Mozza had a great game but should’ve been subbed off after going 1 up. For me by far the worst performance goes to adarabioyo. No matter that it was a foul throw to start with he just stopped in the box and let his man go for a free header to score

Disappointing from West Brom not to win tonight. Should have been out of sight long before the equaliser. Seemed to lack energy in midfield late on & Adarabioyo looked a fish out of water at right back. #WBA

Barry for Mozza was the right substitution after the goal. Tosin switches off again and we concede. God help us Friday. I fear the worst, if we try to go toe to toe with 'em. 4-4-2 for me. Phillips and Barnes down the wings and Barry and Livermore kicking anything that moves #wba

Whilst young tosin has done alright at full back (especially in the away games- as he's not expected to attack) at home him playing right back really stifles our attack. We really need a rb in January #WBA

We need a right back. Tosin isn’t going to get down the wing #wba
