West Bromwich Albion returned to the top of the Championship after a 2-2 draw with Charlton Athletic at the weekend.
The Baggies prepared to come up against the Addicks at The Valley for the second time in six days, after a 1-0 victory in the FA Cup last week.
Just as he did last weekend, Kenneth Zohore opened the scoring for Slaven Bilic’s side on Saturday, before Josh Davison levelled the scores from a corner just minutes later.
Straight after half-time, West Brom made the perfect start, with Hal Robson-Kanu converting from close-range to put Albion back in the lead.
Can you get 17 out of 17 on this West Brom quiz?
But in the 76th minute, Charlton scored yet another equaliser – Sam Johnstone was unable to keep Tom Lockyer’s header out, and it went down as an own-goal.
It was a shaky performance from Johnstone, who could have gifted Charlton with an opener before Zohore’s strike – a sloppy pass finding Conor Gallagher who shot wide.
Here, we take a look at what Albion fans thought of his performance at the weekend…

Johnstone seems to be getting a lot of stick on Twitter but he wasn’t at fault today. The defensive set up let him massively exposed. If you continually allow free unchallenged headers then you will always give away cheap goals #wba

There are many reasons we didn't win today but Johnstone was not one #wba

– Been very poor for over a month
– Kyle Bartley is the most overrated player in the league
– Conor Townsend belongs in League One
– Semi Ajayi forgets how to play the sport every 10th match
– Matt Phillips is either really good or really bad
– Play Jonathan Bond over Johnstone

Don't get me wrong a think Sam Johnstone has improved hugely in the last few months but for me there is still improvement to be made, as a shot stopper he's fantastic but the commanding of his area still isn't what it should be not in my opinion 🙃 #wba

He is 27/28 if he doesnt command his area now then he never will Sarah. Defenders have to make up for keepers lack of commandment of his area
