West Brom: Adam Reach let down the team against Luton

West Brom have conceded their fourth defeat in five league games, with new manager Steve Bruce only picking up one point out of a possible nine, as his side took a 2-0 defeat yesterday away to Luton Town.

The Baggies were able to hold off their hosts in the first half, but despite dominating possession throughout the game, the side conceded two goals in the second half after Cameron Jerome and Allan Campbell found the back of the net to deny West Brom any chance of taking anything from the game.

The story of the season for Albion has been their inability to pose a clinical attacking threat in the final third, by wasting hundreds of chances over the last few months that has cost the side the opportunity to challenge for automatic promotion and now they are battling for a place in the play-off positions in the final months of the season.

One player who let down the team today was Adam Reach, who was relied upon to create chances, cause problems for the Luton defence and find the back of the net, all of which he completely failed to achieve throughout the game.

According to SofaScore, the West Brom winger failed to record a single shot on or off target, lost possession of the ball in every three of his 47 touches, made no attempts to dribble the ball, lost 60% of his duels and only completed 24 passes throughout his 90 minute performance.

In fact, it’s a surprise that Reach was picked for the starting eleven by the manager in the first place, considering the forward has played 26 games and registered not a single goal in the Championship this season, with 0.2 shots on target per game, it leaves a huge question mark over the manager’s judgement of the player.

Can Bruce save West Brom's season?

Yes

Yes

No

No

The ex-Newcastle manager was clearly brought in to solve the issues that Valerien Ismael failed to resolve in his tenure, but it doesn’t seem that there are any improvements of note in the three league games that Bruce has taken charge of, which will surely be a huge frustration for the Baggies fans who were hoping a new manager could inspire change for the club.

West Brom have now fallen to 11th in the Championship table, with the side facing a huge challenge against 7th place Middlesbrough on Tuesday evening, and Bruce must identify the right players to assemble his attacking line quickly, with the current selection failing to respond effectively.
