West Bromwich Albion loanee Grady Diangana has taken to Twitter with a message for the Baggies fanbase - plus a tribute to teammate Matt Phillips - following the Hawthorns side's victory on Monday night and return to the top of the Championship table.
The Baggies had to sit and wait on the weekend of matchday 15 as they were knocked off top spot following the other teams fulfilling their fixtures but Slaven Bilic's charges got the job done on Monday night by running out 2-0 winners at Stoke City.
It took West Brom just eight minutes to break the deadlock at the Bet365 Stadium, a one-two between Diangana and Jake Livermore allowing Phillips to weigh in with an unmarked, close-range finish.
Diangana was also involved in creating the opportunity for the second goal, being brought to ground by Cameron Carter-Vickers in the Potters box for a penalty which Hal Robson-Kanu converted, sending Jack Butland the wrong way.
The 21-year-old West Ham man posted the following message on Twitter and a number of Albion fans took the time to respond - amid reports claiming his parent club has a January recall clause (Football London):
