At last, a point - away to The Baggies


Although we should have been 3-0 down at half-time with us giving them so much room on their left flank, we went in goalless. For some reason they decided to change their tactics after the break and the second half was quite evenly balanced although they were always the side more likely to score. They took the lead about 12 minutes from the end and I was then convinced they would get another couple but in the 91st minute their defence switched off and Lewis MacLeod headed our equaliser from an Emiliano cross. I thought Chris Mepham and Dan Bentley played well but we picked up some injuries with Rico Henry going off and this was his first start in 14 months. The last 5 minutes was quite exciting as Emiliano was stretchered off (I even agreed with the West Brom fans that I thought he was making a meal of it) so we were down to 10-men as we had used up all our subs. I will take a point although I was praying for a victory. Also, it wasn’t too cold compared to the last time I watched them in the Black County against Wolves in January when I was freezing and my fingers and toes nearly fell off.
