West Brom: Ajayi, Furlong and Clarke struggle in draw with Huddersfield

West Brom: Ajayi, Furlong and Clarke struggle in draw with Huddersfield -West Bromwich Albion News

Semi Ajayi, Darnell Furlong and Matt Clarke all struggled in West Brom’s dramatic 2-2 draw with Huddersfield Town on Friday evening.

The Baggies faced another important Championship game at the Hawthorns on Friday but key points were again dropped, even though it could have been worse.

Steve Bruce’s side found themselves 2-0 down late in the day, only for Karlan Grant’s penalty to reduce the arrears and Andy Carroll to equalise just moments later.

According to Sofascore, these three players stood at West Brom’s worst on the night, of those to have played at least 45 minutes of action – could they now be looking over their shoulders regarding their places in Steve Bruce’s first XI?

Semi Ajayi – 6.3

The Baggies didn’t cover themselves in glory defensively against Huddersfield and Ajayi was one of those who had a poor evening.

The 28-year-old didn’t make a single tackle or interception at the Hawthorns, not to mention he won only one out of six ground duels overall.

Ajayi also lost possession nine times for good measure.

Will Johnstone leave West Brom?

Darnell Furlong – 6.4

Up next was Furlong, who failed to make a significant impact out of the right flank.

He was guilty of giving the ball away a sizeable 21 times, making Ajayi’s tally look minuscule in comparison, and he also won just one ground and aerial duel apiece out of seven in total.

Like Ajayi, Furlong also made no tackles or interceptions, in what was a timid showing.

Matt Clarke – 6.5

Clarke was deemed West Brom’s third-worst player, as their Championship promotion hopes took another hit.

The Englishman failed to complete three of his seven long balls attempted, as well as playing no key passes from defence, even if it isn’t his primary job.

Clarke lost possession on nine occasions, too, playing a part in the Baggies struggling to control the game.
