Player ratings v West Brom

Player ratings v West Brom

Harper - 7 - Not much he could do with the goals, some tidy saves otherwise. Not missing Shay, so far.

S Taylor - 5 - A well taken goal but again serious issues with the offside trap and a terrible effort for the first WBA effort.

Bassong - 6 - Given a more torrid time against Fortune than against Kenwyne Jones last week. Two weeks to consolidate is no bad thing.

Coloccini - 5 - Needs, as our record defensive signing, to take control at the back and start organising the offside trap.

Enrique - 6 - Nowhere near as proactive as against the mackems a week ago, but missed Gutierrez in front of him.

Taylor - 7 - Encouraging debut, including some decent delivery from set pieces that we have been really sorely missing.

Butt - 5 - Costly back pass let Fortune in for the first goal and otherwise looked quite off the pace.

Nolan - 6 - Steady without being spectacular, just like against the mackems last week. Will hopefully get forward a bit more against Everton.

Duff - 8 - A miles better performance on the left wing. Leaves us in a massive quandary as Enrique plays better with Gutierrez on the left wing but Duff adds miles more on the left than the right.

Ameobi - 5 - Still can`t trap a bag of cement and offered very little other than a pass for the first goal. Will say he was injured.

Lovenkrands - 7 - Positive stuff, especially when he got a bit of clear green in front of him. Can be a very useful asset during the run in.

Rafa Backs Under-Fire Players

The two players that have had more grief than any other after the Bristol City home draw were Karl Darlow and Aleksandar Mitrovic.

Rafa Still Needs Time

Benitez hasn't been the reactionary manager like some we've had but it still leads to the ultimate dilemma

Vital View - Championship, 24th-26th February 2017

Brighton winning and Newcastle drawing saw Albion return to the top of the table. Huddersfield couldn't close the gap though. Wigan, Blackburn & Rotherham are still the bottom three.
