West Bromwich Albion fans are still drooling over Dara O’Shea’s first goal for the club in Sunday’s 2-0 win against Millwall at The Den.
The 20-year-old right-back did brilliantly getting to the front post to meet Kamil Grosicki’s corner, nodding home in the 84th minute to secure a big win.
The trip to Millwall was the third Championship game running where Slaven Bilic has selected O’Shea over Darnell Furlong at right-back.
With 19-year-old Nathan Ferguson regularly occupying the left-back position in recent weeks, it’s fair to say the Baggies have one of the most exciting, young full-back partnerships in the league.
It’s starting to seriously feel like a breakout campaign in the first team for O’Shea and it’ll be interesting to see if Bilic awards him a fourth start on the spin at Reading on Wednesday night.
Fan Twitter account @WBAReport shared footage of his maiden goal, which sparked plenty of positivity from these West Brom supporters…
