Although it took an 85th-minute winner to seal the three points, it was another solid performance as Carlos Corberan’s side dominated 64% of the ball and had 11 shots, via SofaScore.
This impressive display is highlighted by the average SofaScore rating given to the team of 6.96.
However, this further highlights the outlier for the Baggies, as Jed Wallace recorded yet another disappointing display with his 6.4 rating.
Not since mid-September has he scored; a nine-game barren run.
With the likes of Grady Diangana forced to watch from the bench, it makes his continued inclusion all the more baffling.
This lines up with the simple one-word summation from Lewis Cox on one of the former Millwall winger’s displays this season: “wasteful”.
His poor midweek performance was likely overlooked due to the relief that came with a win at last, but this was not a one-off.
Wallace must improve soon, or else risk being forced to the bench.
With Corberan now at the helm permanently, he will be assessing who in his squad he can trust to perform consistently.
