West Bromwich Albion striker Charlie Austin has taken to Twitter to comment on his debut goal for the Baggies in Tuesday night's Carabao Cup game against Millwall and got a response from WBA fans and Southampton fans alike.

Although West Brom were defeated by the Lions at The Hawthorns in the first-round tie, the Albion summer signing was one of his side's better players on the night and opened his account early on in the game.

 

Austin, who joined the Baggies on deadline day from Southampton for a fee reported by BBC Sport as £4million, headed home from close range in the ninth minute of the game after Luke Steele parried Grady Diangana's shot on to the bar.

The 30-year-old posted the following message on social media, to which a few West Brom fans responded:

Some Southampton fans also took to Twitter to praise their former striker and wish him all the best going forward:

Austin has penned a two-year contract at West Brom following his exit from Southampton after three-and-a-half seasons at St Mary’s Stadium, in which he made 81 appearances and scored 20 goals.

The Baggies return to action on Saturday afternoon as they head to Luton Town for a Championship clash.
