A number of West Brom supporters have been praising Adam Reach’s performance in the 2-1 win over QPR, claiming he has proved them wrong.
The Baggies were in Championship action on Friday night, looking to put an end to three successive draws in the competition.
A disastrous start saw QPR take the lead through Andre Gray with just 43 seconds on the clock, but Valerien Ismael’s side produced a spirited comeback.
Can West Brom cope without O'Shea?
Karlan Grant equalised with the help of some poor goalkeeping by Seny Dieng in the second half, before the striker clinched all three points with a late strike.
Someone who played well for West Brom was Reach, who beforehand had failed to get going in a Baggies shirt and received some criticism from fans, having joined from Sheffield Wednesday in the summer.
West Brom fans react to Reach display
These West Brom fans took to Twitter to heap praise on the 28-year-old, following his improved showing.
“Reach was class today“
“Yeah 100%. Reach ain’t as bad as I first thought“
“Reach is a handy player to have, good business by us. I don’t think he’s brilliant or even above average. But he does what’s required“
“I rate Adam Reach. Liked him at Sheffield Wednesday he can put a good ball in the box”
“I think Reach has done well overall. Poor at Preston but he wasn’t alone in that, but decent against Derby and again yesterday. Yes, Townsend probably regains the spot when the centre-backs are fit but Reach has done a handy job“
“Really smart play from Reach here. Pulls his marker inside, frees Townsend and gives him time to receive. Also giving Grant and Townsend a 2v1. Drifts into pocket of space between the lines. Good layoff first time. Acts as a blocker to give Grant more time to shoot“
