West Brom made a brilliant comeback late in the game to secure one of the favorable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Andre Gray gave the visitors the lead with less than a minute on the clock. West Brom then completely dominated the game but could not find the breakthrough. The visitors defended staunchly until an error by goalkeeper Seny Dieng pushed the ball into his own net. Karlan Grant then scored the winner in the 89th minute after a brilliant move by the hosts to help preserve their unbeaten start to the season.
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “Congratulations to the guys. I think they showed another mentality. It was a difficult game because we conceded a goal early and after we changed the way to have more possession. When you know that you will have more possession, you need more patience. But I think, in the end, we deserved it because we shot 18 times, eight times on target.
QPR’s Mark Warburton: “We had to adopt different tactics tonight. They pressed well and expected us to overplay at the back, so we had to go against what we normally do to frustrate. We felt we could get loads of space down the sides and we did it in a minute; that’s exactly why Andre played tonight.” he added. “We got the early goal then we frustrated them. We wanted to quieten the crowd and not play the QPR way, so to speak. Seny had no great saves to make and then we gave away two individual errors and that’s the frustration.”
