West Bromwich Albion fans have been lavishing praise on Conor Townsend after the defender’s cameo off the bench in the side’s 2-2 draw against Barnsley.
Can West Brom win the Championship?
The 26-year-old was making just his third appearance of the season as he came off the bench to assist Matheus Pereira’s equalising goal on Wednesday.

His appearance against Barnsley was just his second Championship match of the season and his first since the opening day of the season (via Transfermarkt).
After being asked what they thought of the £675k-rated defender’s performance, fans lauded Townsend for his performance as they took to Twitter to react.
Here is a selection of tweets from the Hawthorns faithful:
Absolutely, changed the game completely. Deserves to start on Saturday imo.
