West Brom truly announced themselves in the Championship title race with a sensational 3-2 win over QPR on Tuesday, with Jake Livermore scoring his first goal of the season in the fourth minute of injury time to take all three points back to The Hawthorns.
The victory puts the Baggies just one point behind former league leaders Leeds, who will have the opportunity to regain their seat at the top on Saturday against Bolton.
While Livermore stole the headlines, debutant Jefferson Montero, on loan from Swansea, scored five minutes in to give his side the lead but, other than that early show of promise, cut a disappointing figure.

Eventually replaced by Rekeem Harper just before the hour, the Ecuadorian winger looked unfit and will surely be used more as an impact sub later in games from now on, especially considering Dwight Gayle appears likely to be back in contention for the crucial clash with Sheffield United this weekend.
Here’s how Baggies fans reacted to the 5 foot 7 speedster’s performance on Twitter…
Still think he is awful

Not sure if I’m being harsh on Montero but I thought he was awful that first half, so much time and space, surely Phillips could be more useful here

For me the jury is out on all of Murphy, Montero and Johansen #WBA
