West Brom fans were delighted with 18-year-old Rekeem Harper against Nottingham Forest

West Bromwich Albion drew 2-2 with Nottingham Forest on Tuesday evening in controversial circumstances as Dwight Gayle’s dive provided Jay Rodriguez with the opportunity to equalise from the penalty spot in the 89th minute.

The supporters were feeling rather fortunate to come away with a positive result after a relatively underwhelming display, but there was one bright spark worth noting: the performance of Rekeem Harper.

The 18-year-old played the full 90 minutes in the league for the fourth time in the last five games, showcasing a level of maturity and confidence in his own ability which supporters are naturally drawn towards.

Players of his age seldom slip under the radar of expectant supporters, and Harper has been no exception in the Championship in recent times.

The Baggies faithful are monitoring his development with a keen eye and they were delighted with what they saw from the teenager on Tuesday.

Harper’s stunning long-range effort which crashed off the post in the build up to Jacob Murphy’s equaliser represented a moment of technical genius worth salivating over, but it was the overall quality of his performance which particularly delighted supporters.

Indeed, the academy graduate put in a fantastic all-round display in central midfield and earned gushing praise on Twitter for his efforts.

Here’s what the West Brom fans had to say about Harper’s performance against Nottingham Forest:
