West Bromwich Albion misplaced but once more in the present day, in a recreation that can depart Steve Bruce livid that his facet couldn’t maintain out and declare a outcome at dwelling to Swansea Metropolis.

Regardless of falling behind early on, two targets for the Baggies after the restart meant they held a 2-1 lead with simply 25 minutes to go. Unsurprisingly, the lead slipped away with an equaliser on 71 minutes, earlier than Michael Obafemi’s 89th-minute strike gained it for the guests.

This marks the Baggies’ sixth recreation and not using a win within the Championship, as they did not beat a facet that began the day inside touching distance of them within the league, however now discover themselves now 5 factors away from Albion.

David Button dropped a horrible efficiency, because the shot-stopper conceded 3 times while making solely one save. His SofaScore ranking of 5.2 was horrendous, however it was Darnell Furlong who most upset on Saturday.

His SofaScore ranking was solely marginally higher than the goalkeeper’s at 6.0, nevertheless, the defender was a legal responsibility on the again and provided little when venturing ahead.

The total-back didn’t make a single interception or deal with and gained simply one of his six duels – an 83% failure charge.

He managed this while dropping possession 11 instances, outlining simply how toothless he was offensively. His contribution to Bruce’s staff was decidedly damaging, and his 39 touches show that he was largely a passenger within the match.

Neither of his two crosses discovered his supposed goal, and to cap his efficiency off he was booked simply earlier than half-time for a cynical foul.

Button could steal the headlines for one more invisible efficiency between the sticks, however it was Furlong who actually stunk out The Hawthorns.

It will likely be all of the extra disappointing given how he was dubbed “integral” to the facet not too way back.

This recreation in opposition to the Swans was one which Bruce would have marked as a improbable alternative for them to get their season again on observe, so to see one other defensively questionable show should disappoint him.

Who was the worst performer in the present day?

Maybe to forestall this he’ll look to alter among the personnel. If that’s the case, following in the present day’s efficiency, Furlong’s place within the staff might be in jeopardy.
