Jed Wallace let West Brom down today

West Bromwich Albion continued their miserable form with yet another loss today.

Still without a manager, Richard Beale once again had to command a side that could not buy a result. Despite winning his first match, that marks the only victory for the Baggies in 11 Championship games.

Should Jed Wallace be dropped?

Travelling to an overperforming Millwall with an impressive manager in Gary Rowett, it was never going to be easy.

His ability is outlined in the Midlands club’s reported interest in poaching him to fill their vacancy.

Despite racing into a 1-0 lead, it came crumbling down with a last-minute winner for the Lions, breaking the travelling fans’ hearts.

The performances were a mixed bag, with some impressive displays and some less so.

Out of the latter, Jed Wallace arguably let his caretaker boss down the most.

Despite assisting the opener, he still managed one of the worst SofaScore ratings of his side, with just 6.7. This is testament to his display aside from this contribution.

He was disappointing throughout, making just 13 passes all game with a mere 32 touches. The forward also lost the ball 12 times, meaning he was dispossessed every 2.6 touches.

Creatively inept and defensively unsure, it was a shock to see him complete a full match with Grady Diangana sitting on the bench.

Wallace also competed in 13 duels, winning just four, marking a distinct lack of commitment throughout from the 28-year-old. This was further compounded by his zero clearances and interceptions.

Karlan Grant must have been furious with the lack of service from his wide man, as he did not even attempt a single cross.

First up in this West Brom transfer quiz, which club did the Baggies sign Alex Mowatt from?

It now marks another game that has ended in defeat, and although the Baggies have shown more spirited performances in recent weeks, the incoming manager has an almighty task to turn this sinking ship around.

They now sit even further adrift from safety, with 21st-placed Middlesborough now three points ahead of them. Even Coventry City are above them, despite having played three fewer games.

In a game that was tough but wholly winnable for Beale’s side, he was monumentally let down by Wallace, who has now scored just three times in 16 league games.
