West Brom fell to a 1-0 defeat at Leeds United last night in what was a very good game between two of the favourites for promotion in the Championship.
There was a lot of quality on show from both teams, with the Whites dominating the first-half and they deservedly took the lead in the 38th minute through Ezgjan Alioski.
However, they somehow failed to double that lead just before the break, with Albion keeper Sam Johnstone making a terrific double stop, firstly from Patrick Bamford and then Helder Costa.
The club shared a clip of the save on their Twitter account this afternoon and even though the Baggies didn’t go on to get a point from the game, it ensured they could have a real go in the second half as they didn’t trail by two.

As you would expect, the save went down well with the fans who were delighted to see their stopper in such good form last night.
Here’s some of the reaction from Twitter to the moment…
