The Aston Villa centre-back made his home debut but lost to his old club.
Aston Villa centre-back Joleon Lescott was honoured on Twitter to have completed a boyhood dream after making his home debut for Villa.
But the 33-year-old admitted he was gutted with the result as Aston Villa lost 1-0 to fierce rivals West Brom.
The Baggies so happen to be Lescott's former club, with the experienced defender having left West Brom to move to Villa Park this summer.
His response conveyed his mixed feelings after the 1-0 defeat on Twitter:
Honour to have made my home debut (Boyhood dream) just gutted with the result. No time to mope tho with the biggest game of the season ahead— Joleon Lescott (@JoleonLescott) September 19, 2015
It had to be Saido Berahino who netted the winner for Tony Pulis's side after the summer he has had. Lescott's reference at the end, though, previews yet another Aston Villa derby, with Villa facing Birmingham City in the Capital One Cup.
That's two losses out of two for Lescott's side, however, with things unraveling since they found themselves 2-0 up against Leicester City.
West Brom, meanwhile, will no doubt hope to kick on from here. It seems it was written in the stars for Pulis's side to get one over the man who left them for Aston Villa this summer. Hard luck for the centre-back.
