West Bromwich Albion drew 2-2 at Sheffield Wednesday on Wednesday night.
West Bromwich Albion produced a rousing fightback to draw 2-2 at Sheffield Wednesday last night, having been 2-0 down at Hillsborough.
Goals are flying in at both ends when the Baggies play this season, and just days after a 3-2 win at Preston North End, there were more goals on Wednesday night.
Just days after scoring a stunning half volley against Leeds United, Adam Reach was at it again, smashing home a long-range strike into the top corner of the net.
Fernando Forestieri made it 2-0 before the break, leaving West Brom with a huge mountain to climb – but climb it they did with a superb second half display.
Harvey Barnes pulled one back, and the Leicester City loanee then grabbed his second by dancing through the Wednesday defence and smashing into the net.
West Brom will be delighted with a point having trailed 2-0, and there is a strong belief that the introduction of playmaker Wes Hoolahan played a key part in the fightback.
The veteran Irishman came on for the final 25 minutes having signed for the club on a free transfer last month, and the ex-Norwich City man certainly impressed fans.
Many took to Twitter to suggest that Hoolahan changed the game and made a real impact for West Brom, getting on the ball and creating in the final third whilst keeping possession ticking over too, with some keen for him to start despite being 36.
Barry & Hoolahan changed that game. Got the midfield going and gained some momentum. Defensively we look worse as the weeks go by! Take the point and move on to Reading where Barry and Field need to be involved id even consider Livermore for Bartley? #WBA— Matt Wheatley (@WBA1878) October 3, 2018
