It was another frustrating night for West Brom as they were held to a goalless draw at home to Derby County.
The Baggies were held to another home draw after their stalemate with Millwall at the weekend, and were unable to take their chances last night.
Valerien Ismael’s side produced a dominant display, having 65% of the ball over the 90 minutes and having 25 shots in total.
In the first half, Karlan Grant sliced a relatively easy chance off target following a short corner routine, whilst Kelle Roos produced an unbelievable save to deny Darnell Furlong’s diving header late on.
But in the end, the points were shared, much to the frustration of Ismael and Baggies fans who had attended the Hawthorns.
Grant started in a wide right position, but was replaced at half-time by Jordan Hugill who moved into more of a central role.
Grant struggled to make any sort of meaningful impact, and here’s what Albion fans had to say in regards to his performance…
Grady on the left, Robinson in the middle and Phillips on the right. Grant offers nothing, not impressed with Hugill either. Grady looked superb on the left, play football like the 2nd half and Robinson will score. #wba

Grant showed nothing against Millwall or Derby, I’d rather see Reach play on the left up front than him

Grady Hugill Robbo on Saturday and it should have been those three starting last night. Grant offers absolutely nothing. #wba

Because Grant was absolutely shocking in the first half. Couldn't tell he was even playing. Not so sure on Robbo though.

Unfortunately Grant is looking like a really poor signing for the money we have committed to pay, which despite what some think is actually £15m plus wages.

If somebody can genuinely tell me what Grant brings to the team, and it’s a valid reason, I’ll transfer you £10. Go#wba

Drop Grant Next Game Start Hugil. I'd go Robbo one side and Grady the other. #WBA
