West Bromwich Albion required penalties to beat Peterborough United in the FA Cup last night.
West Bromwich Albion supporters have praised the performance that Christian Gamboa put in for them against Peterborough United last night.
The Baggies were short of their best at the ABAX Stadium, as they required penalties to knock the League One side out of the FA Cup.
Many of Tony Pulis’ side’s players failed to show their top form, but Gamboa’s tireless energy did catch the eye.
The Costa Rica international had played just two times for West Brom this season, prior to last night’s contest, but he did not look short of match sharpness.
The 26-year-old performance was arguably better than all of his West Brom teammates’ showings, and he will have given Pulis a selection dilemma for the weeks ahead.
West Brom fans certainly want to see him involved more regularly - and they moved to praise the rapid full-back on social media site Twitter after last night’s match. Here is the best reaction.
Gamboa had a great game, McLean looked lively as always, still lacking that threat up top, Lack of firepower from Rondon again #WBA— Rob (@Robyeye) February 11, 2016
It was okay beyond Fletcher's goal. Before that, not worth mentioning. I thought Gamboa and Chester were just about the pick. #WBA— Joe Chapman (@ChapmanJ92) February 10, 2016
Chester looked good at CB. Gamboa played well. Although he has pace and gets forward so Pulis will drop him. #wba— Adam Heal (@heal1979) February 10, 2016
Whens the last time u saw anyone provide as much threat as Gamboa from the back? #wba— Luke Mason (@jastle68) February 10, 2016
Credit where it's due, I thought Chester did very well. Poco was sound, again and Gamboa gave good option. Sess changed the game. #wba— Criso Reilly (@CrisoWBA) February 10, 2016
Only Chester Gamboa and Sess come out tonight with any credit. Job done tho. mozza 95th min v BC, Pens v PB - are FACup gods shining on #WBA— Calum Scriven (@RealCalScriven) February 10, 2016
Gamboa and Pocognoli played well today, they both proved why we should play proper fullbacks but the centre of midfield was poor again #wba— Barton (@Barton97wba) February 10, 2016
West Brom will now take on Reading in the fifth round of the FA Cup at the Madejski Stadium in two weekends' time.
