Callum Robinson made his West Bromwich Albion debut as they moved back to the top of the Championship table after beating Luton Town 2-0 at the Hawthorns on Saturday evening.
A busy deadline day for the Midlands club included Robinson signing for the club from Sheffield United on a loan deal, and the attacker was handed a start by Slaven Bilic.
After a rather poor couple of months, the Baggies knew that they had to seal a win over Luton, hoping to end their run of seven games without a win.
Bilic’s side look to take the lead early on and they did after a touch of fortune saw Donervon Daniels put the ball into his own net.
With a slender 1-0 lead heading into the final twenty minutes of the game, West Brom looked to score a second and they did through an unlikely source in centre-back Semi Ajayi.
The win ensured that the Baggies moved back on top of the league table and ended their run of seven games without a win.
Leeds United, who were top heading into Saturday, lost to Wigan Athletic at home – whist third placed Nottingham Forest lost 2-1 to Birmingham City.
Following the game, plenty of West Brom fans took to social media to give their thoughts on Robinson’s debut.

Robinson linked play up today which we have missed of late and worked his socks off.
Also Townsend had a good game as well.
just the odd dodgy moment which we brought on ourselves again but 3 x points and the rot is stopped #WBA

Ground out a win finally and a much needed clean sheet! Robinson looks lively and added another dimension. Corners are getting worse though, Johnstone can’t kick and Krovinovic is awful #wba
