The Baggies forward and Hawthorns summer signing didn't have a good day at the office against the Cottagers.

A number of West Bromwich Albion fans have taken to Twitter to comment on their side's 1-1 draw at Fulham in Saturday's early Championship kickoff and Charlie Austin was one of several players whose performance came under scrutiny.

The Baggies fell behind in the 49th minute after Anthony Knockaert weighed in with a left-footed cross-shot from the edge of the box which caught out the Baggies goalkeeper Sam Johnstone as it dipped in at the far post.

 

West Brom did not have the best day at the office but they found an equaliser on 80 minutes as a poor attempt from Marcus Bettinelli to get a corner clear saw him palm the ball straight into the path of Semi Ajayi, who headed into the empty net.

Austin laboured for much of the game as he weighed in with a couple of wayward efforts and made a few stray passes as well, although he didn't have much support from his teammates to work with either, with the Baggies mostly playing on the counter.

Here is what some Albion fans said about the forward on social media:

Austin joined The Hawthorns in the summer from Southampton on a two-year contract in a transfer which reportedly cost the Baggies £4million (BBC Sport).
