The Hawthorns summer signing is working his way back up to fitness from a calf injury and featured for West Bromwich Albion U23s in the Premier League 2.

West Bromwich Albion have taken to Twitter to show off Kenneth Zohore’s well-taken brace in the Baggies Under-23s win in the Premier League 2 second division last night.

With West Brom’s first team not in action until next Monday, the Baggies took the opportunity to utilise several first-team players recovering from injury or simply seeking more minutes.

Rekeem Harper, Chris Willock, Chris Brunt and Kyle Edwards were also named in the XI by Albion Under-23 caretaker manager Deon Burton in their clash against Swansea, while Ahmed Hegazi came off the bench.


Zohore has been working his way back to fitness following a calf injury and was impressive on the night, finding the back of the net four times, though two of his efforts were chalked off for offside.

The 25-year-old opened the scoring just before the hour mark, heading in a cross from Dara O’Shea, and did not have to wait long for his second, connecting with a neat Chris Willock delivery before slotting into the bottom corner.

Here are Zohore’s goals, as showcased by the Baggies Twitter feed, plus some fan reaction to the clip:

Zohore has made nine appearances for Slaven Bilic’s side since his summer move from Cardiff, scoring two goals (Transfermarkt).
