It was a lovely finish from the striker, and it was well deserved for the performance put in by Tony Pulis’ men.
They were never really threatened, and even losing Chris Brunt in the first-half through injury was not too big a loss.
Brunt was replaced at left-back by Sebastien Pocognoli, who was coming on for just his fourth appearance of the season.
He has been perennially outcast by Pulis since the manager was appointed at the Hawthorns, but has performed when called upon, and he was extremely solid in the defence despite having little first-team football to his name.
Pocognoli's performance might be enough to convince Pulis to give him a run out in the Premier League, especially if Brunt is out of action for an extend period of time, and West Brom fans reacted to his performance in a positive manner.
Pocognoli back and looked good, we're you watching Tony #WBA— Stephen Dyer (@stephendyer57) January 19, 2016
Considering he hasn't had a look in since Pulis arrived, I thought Pocognoli did really well tonight #WBA— Ashley Hill (@AshHillWBA) January 19, 2016
Also, Pocognoli is a true professional. As soon as he is finally called upon, he does a good job!— Tom Cannon (@TomCannon93) January 19, 2016
Big Vic did surprising well in the midfield role as did Pocognoli at full back. Hopefully, Pocognoli will now get some game time #wba— Nathan Lacey (@Nathlacey) January 19, 2016
The return of Pocognoli. We've already won the cup in my eyes. #wba— Davy (@The60ftOctopus) January 19, 2016
Great to see Pocognoli back in an Albion shirt, a great attacking left-back. Its a shame Pulis doesnt seem to trust him.— Nathan Bliss (@Nathan_Bliss14) January 19, 2016
Great to see Pocognoli playing again and playing well, if he could somehow be a foot taller Pulis would make him captain for Saturday #wba— steven prince (@stevenwbaprince) January 19, 2016
They looked a threat down the right, then Pocognoli came on and it all stopped. He played very well. #wba— Dave Worley (@daveworley) January 19, 2016
