Andy Carroll scored his first goal for the Baggies as they produced one of the close football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Danny Ward gave the visitors a two-goal lead with goals in the 24th and 74th minutes respectively. Karlan Grant grabbed a goal back in the 84th minute from the penalty spot before Andy Carroll equalized five minutes from the end. Grant came close to grabbing the winner when he hit the crossbar in the last minute.

Managers Reaction 

West Brom’s Steve Bruce: “There were a couple of minutes where we might have nicked it! I didn’t think there was much in it. We gifted them a goal and we are in a difficult place at the moment, so you could see the confidence drain away a little bit with the run we’ve unfortunately been on. Hopefully we’ve shown a spirit and something about them to get themselves back in. Andy gave us something a bit different, which was good to see. All in all, it was typical Championship game, where – for me – there was nothing in it, but it could have gone either way.”

Huddersfield’s Carlos Corberan: “It’s clear the penalty changed the dynamic of the game. I haven’t watched the action back, but from where I was watching, it’s an action we need to avoid. The games are 90 or 95 minutes; for me, we were excellent for 80 minutes and even good in the extra time of the game, but the game changed in five minutes.”
