West Brom fans have slammed Sam Johnstone for conceding a goal in the first half against Hull City at The Hawthorns on Sunday.

Charlie Austin fired the Baggies ahead after four minutes but just before the first-half drinks break, Hull got themselves back in the game through Kevin Stewart.

Many Albion fans seem to believe that goalkeeper Johnstone could have done a lot more to stop Stewart scoring as, once again, Slaven Bilic saw his side come undone at a corner kick.

West Brom failed to clear their lines and that led to Stewart equalising for the relegation-threatened Tigers.

Johnstone has been regularly criticised by fans this season and he even took to Twitter to respond to critics earlier in the campaign.

And it seems that those who have it in for the former Aston Villa goalkeeper are at it again, even though it was a defensive lapse by pretty much the entire team.

Goalkeepers cannot be expected to claim every single cross that comes into the box – there are more outfield players than there are goalkeepers.

Why doesn’t someone else get the blame? Why does Johnstone get criticised so often for not being superhuman?

It seems that the supporters don’t think that before hitting out at the stop-stopper.

Here is a selection of their tweets:
