West Bromwich Albion beat Bristol City 1-0 in FA Cup action last night.
A host of West Bromwich Albion’s players have expressed their delight on social media after they beat Bristol City last night in the FA Cup.
West Brom were handed a tough ask to get past the Championship side at Ashton Gate, but they did so impressively.
The Baggies were the dominant side for much of the fixture, and looked a class above the Robins as they booked their place in the next round.
Although Bristol City had their chances, West Brom were deserved winners.
The Baggies scored their only goal through Salomon Rondon, but the game was also notable as both Sebastian Pocognoli and Ben Foster returned to action.
Pocognoli and Foster have rarely featured this term, but they were delighted to be back on the pitch once again yesterday evening.
