West Brom: Journalist hails ‘excellent’ Tom Rogic and Daryl Dike

West Brom: Journalist hails 'excellent' Tom Rogic and Daryl Dike - Championship News

Journalist Lewis Cox has hailed the impact of West Brom pair Tom Rogic and Daryl Dike in the 2-1 win away to Sunderland, calling them both ‘excellent’.

The Lowdown: Big win for Baggies

The Baggies played their first competitive game for a month on Monday night, making the trip to the Stadium of Light for a testing Championship encounter in freezing conditions.

Having trailed at half-time, West Brom produced an impressive and spirited comeback in the second half, with Rogic equalising brilliantly and fellow substitute Dike then scoring the winner.

It was a massive three points that saw Carlos Corberan’s side jump to 17th in the table, as they continue to improve after the sacking of Steve Bruce.

The Latest: ‘Excellent’ duo hailed

Taking to Twitter, Cox hailed the impact of Rogic and Dike from the bench, picking them out as vital figures moving forward:

“Rogic and Dike were excellent goals-aside, too. Corberan’s changes were inspired, as was half-time response. If those two maintain fitness and tonight’s form it clicks wba through gears. This side look a different proposition to Bruce days now.”

The Verdict: Two key players moving forward

Rogic and Dike were both superb on Monday evening, playing such a key role in West Brom’s victory, not just because they found the net.

The former was a classy presence during his cameo, enjoying a 92% pass completion rate and winning seven ground duels, while the latter registered an assist.

As Cox alludes to, the duo do feel like influential figures between now and the end of the season, and Corberan needs to find a regular place for them in his starting lineup.
