Disheartening. The Baggies came out for the first half unorganised throughout; the defensive third was in disarray, and the midfield were weak.

It only took two minutes for Bristol City to capitalise on an aimless arrangement of passing. Jake Livermore was dispossessed in front of the back four and left the hosts’ attack with an easy attempt on goal, which proved successful.

Soon after came the second. A header into the box from a City player caused chaos for the Albion defence, and Andreas Weimann got on the end of it.

Three minutes after Conor Townsend lost his man and a lucky Jack Hunt found himself in a free pocket of space at the back post with an easy header to convert. Sam Johnstone was left with no chance.

James Shan made a few changes, and his men managed to snatch a goal back straight after half-time from a Dwight Gayle header, which gave the away fans hope of a comeback.

West Brom then managed to bag a second. Bristol City were unable to deal with a long throw and gifted Jay Rodriguez a shot on goal from three yards out, and he couldn’t miss.

However, it wasn’t to be. West Brom had few chances after that and despite Shan’s efforts to turn the game around at half time, the first 20 minutes of turmoil was enough to seal the game for Bristol City.
