As West Bromwich Albion maintained their chase for promotion with a resounding 3-0 win over Bristol City on Saturday, many Baggies supporters weren’t impressed with striker Jordan Hugill despite his goal.
Valerien Ismael is looking to guide West Brom straight back into the big time following their Premier League relegation at the end of last season and they are right in contention to go back up.
Should West Brom sign another striker in January?
Yes, need more options
No, we have enough
It will be hard-fought for the second-placed Baggies, though, with the likes of Fulham and Coventry City following closely behind as it stands (BBC).
As such, amid all the fierce competition for an automatic promotion place, the Baggies must show cutting edge in what is set to be a very interesting Championship campaign.
Ismael’s side strolled to a 3-0 victory at The Hawthorns yesterday afternoon courtesy of strikes from Hugill, Kyle Barley and Karlan Grant – but many Baggies fans sought to slam the former despite his opening goal.
Indeed, after he opened the floodgates for West Brom, Hugill wasted plenty of chances to add more to the scoresheet and displayed a real lack of clinical finishing. He missed three big chances in total and finished the game with a 6.3 SofaScore match rating, lower than any West Brom player.
Taking this into account, it’s little wonder some supporters have criticised his display – check out some of their Twitter verdicts below.
West Brom fans slam Hugill…
“Hugill could’ve had 3 already. He’s absolutely terrible”
“Hugill.. Should have a hat trick easy. Terrible finishing”
“Hugill is god awful”
“Hugill could’ve had at least 5 today, not clinical enough at all”
“Hugill should have had 4 within 35 minutes, he’s still poor. Austin every chance he has today, even Kanu gets at least 2 of the 4”
“Far better today from the lads. If Hugill could finish a Sunday dinner we’d have had double figures”
“Hugill finishing was shocking….”
