The trouble with Friday night football is that if the game doesn’t go your way it could ruin the whole weekend. And West Brom fans will have woken up this morning feeling very much the worse for wear after a bruising 1-0 loss to Brentford.

We can’t really have any complaints. Brentford weren’t spectacular but they got the job done and they looked the fittest side on the pitch.

For West Brom, it’s yet another game without a goal, which is a huge worry going into the final seven games of the season.

Hal Robson-Kanu was chosen to lead the line by Slaven Bilic last night and it was a decision that backfired both for the game and with the fans.

He looked heavy and unfit and many fans piled onto him during and after the game, as well as the manager for picking him.

He was hauled off at half-time, with Bilic bringing Kenneth Zohore on, and West Brom looked a lot sharper and more threatening.

Zohore came closest to scoring for West Brom, slamming a shot against the bar, but it left us and other fans wondering why Charlie Austin – our most effective striker off the bench this season – was left in the stands.

It’s a big problem that West Brom need to sort quickly, with Brentford now just five points back.

One point from two games and no goals scored is a big worry going forwards.

Meanwhile, here are the best reactions to Robson-Kanu from the fans…

In other news, fans have said it’s “Berahino all over again” after this player update was announced.
