West Bromwich Albion: Fans celebrate Charlie Austin’s first goal for the club

West Bromwich Albion fans were celebrating Charlie Austin’s first goal for the club after the striker scored in the 4-2 win over Cardiff City.

Can West Brom win the Championship?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Before Saturday’s win over the Welsh side, Austin had failed to score in the Championship, only scoring one goal in the 2-1 loss at home to Millwall in the Carabao Cup (via Transfermarkt).

Austin joined the club from Southampton for a mere £4m on a two-year deal (via BBC).

The £7.2m-rated Englishman revealed his relief at getting his first league goal for the club and lauded the West Brom fans, who he said played a big part in his maiden strike (via Birmingham Mail).

Despite Austin’s lack of league goals, the Baggies sit top of the second-tier ahead of Nottingham Forest on goal difference.

Fans showed their support for Austin after his goal against Cardiff on the weekend as they took to Twitter to react.

Here is a selection of tweets from the Hawthorns faithful:
