West Brom picked up a much-needed three points as they comfortably swept aside Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough by three goals to nil.
Charlie Austin opened the scoring from the penalty spot, before a Matheus Pereira brace in the second-half saw Slaven Bilic’s side pick up a deserved win on the night.
Austin has struggled for consistent game time with the Baggies this season, with the majority of his appearances coming from the substitutes bench.

The former QPR forward has often been kept out of the starting XI due to the performances by Hal Robson-Kanu and Kenneth Zohore, but was given his opportunity to impress against Garry Monk’s side, and he certainly grasped it with both hands.
It was his tenth goal of the season, as West Brom moved to within a point of league-leaders Leeds United with six matches remaining in this year’s campaign.
Plenty of West Brom fans took to social media to issue their thoughts on Austin’s performance against the Owls.

Get in. Very good result under pressure. Hegazi man mountain, Austin’s best game for us, Sawyers wanted everything second half. #wba

Austin was super , O’Shea brick wall , Hegazi man mountain , Perreira showing he’s quality after a mare of a half , mentions for Robinson and Grosriki from the bench but my M.O.M a rolls Royce of a player Kieron Gibbs 💪 #wba

Huge huge huge win. First half was pretty much as we’ve seen the last 2 games but in the second half we looked so much more like ourselves. Slav you smashed it today 🙌🏻 Hegazi, O’Shea, Gibbs played well but Sawyers ran that game for me 👏🏻 Austin’s fire was massive too #wba
