Ipswich Town took a deserved point off of promotion-chasing West Brom at the weekend, with Jon Nolan’s header proving to be enough to salvage a point for the Tractor Boys.
The draw proved to be Darren Moore’s final game in charge for West Brom, as he was sacked shortly after the game concluded on Saturday evening.
Nolan is the subject of our FLW Spotlight this week and we look into his performance on the day in more detail.
You wouldn’t have thought that it was West Brom that were challenging for promotion in this game, as Ipswich more than matched the Baggies for the majority of the game.
Nolan was at the heart of everything they did right during the match and he had three shots in total, with his header scoring Ipswich’s only goal of the game.
He surprisingly won two aerial duels and made two key passes which is impressive for an Ipswich side that have previously looked void of ideas going forward in recent matches.
The most impressive statistic for Nolan on the day was his passing though and it’s clear to see why.
He attempted 51 passes and with a pass success rate of 82.4%, those numbers speak volumes about how good of a performance this was for the winger.
The 26-year-old has been a regular for the Tractor Boys this season since arriving from Shrewsbury Town in the summer and will be hoping he can lead from the front as they look to retain their Championship status this season.
