Unsung hero: Sam Field the man to thank as West Brom win at Loftus Road

Unsung hero: Sam Field the man to thank as West Brom win at Loftus Road

Thanks to a last gasp Jake Livermore winner for West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night, the top of the Championship table is beginning to look very interesting heading into the business end of the season.

Every three points counts now, and Darren Moore can be extremely proud of his men for the way they battled against a resilient Queens Park Rangers.

On loan Swansea forward Jefferson Montero opened the scoring in the first five minutes of the game with his first touch of the ball, before Luke Freeman equalised for the hosts just before the break.

Jacob Murphy, who’s hit a patch of form in front of goal, scoring two in three now, put his team back into the lead just before the hour mark, only to see Tomer Hemed convert a penalty 15 minutes later to level things up.

A soft penalty but a penalty nonetheless after veteran defender Craig Dawson raised his foot in the area to deny onrushing QPR.

One of those moments that make or break a season.

Madness ensued as both teams looked to secure the winner. QPR stopped Lumley did well to save another effort from Jacob Murphy before West Brom’s Johnstone did the same at the other end to deny Ebere Eze of glory.

Darren Moore can be extremely proud of his team’s efforts. Pressing on into the dying moments of the game, unlikely source Jake Livermore met a ball from Holgate, who’s now provided two assists in two games, to knock home a priceless goal in the Baggies’ bid for promotion.

We’ve got to say it was a very decent performance from Sam Field last night.

The 20-year old was deployed a fairly new role deep-lying playmaker role and performed his tasks capably.

Defensively he was solid, putting in a number of tackles to break up QPR’s play and his distribution was also very sound.

Handled the game well, deserves credit.
