It was a case of two points dropped for West Bromwich Albion on Tuesday night, with the Baggies being held to a 2-2 draw at home to Barnsley.
The visitors hadn’t won since their opening day victory over Fulham, and sat rock bottom of the Sky Bet Championship table heading into Tuesday night’s clash.
But the Tykes gave the table-topping Baggies quite a scare, storming into a 2-0 lead courtesy of a quickfire Cauley Woodrow brace.
Slaven Bilic’s side, who defeated Middlesbrough by a goal to nil at the weekend, did eventually bounce back and bring themselves level.
An own goal from Bambo Diaby and a strike from Matheus Pereira completed the turnaround for West Brom, but they were unable to grab the winning goal.
The night also saw Kyle Edwards make only his fifth league start of the season, but the young midfielder flattered to deceive upon his return to the starting line-up.
After being taken off at half-time, we take a look at Albion fans’ reactions to his performance in midweek…
Edwards and Austin both had stinkers. I am beginning to think with Charlie its a bit like when we signed Lambert. Two seasons too late

I appreciate massively that Kyle Edwards is a young player but after he scored that great goal against Brentford he doesn’t seem the same player. Not just him below par though tonight!! #WBABAR

Ref bottled it tonight he should’ve booked the keeper in the first half for time wasting then sent him off in the 2nd half. Edwards was poor don’t rate him imo, krovinovic changed the game when he came on. Onto the next game #wba

Not many words from me other than point is least Barnsley deserved we just wasn’t at it looked fatigued but missed Phillips a lot tonight and I trust Bilic will not accept a performance like that For Charlton I’d make one change and bring Phillips in for Edwards #wba

Will Chris Willock force his way into Bilic's plans at West Brom?
