Journalist says Jed Wallace was a ‘bright spark’ v Burnley
West Bromwich Albion drew 1-1 with Burnley on Friday evening and Jed Wallace was one of a few players to put in a good performance. The 28-year-old started on the right wing and was the Baggies’ biggest attacking threat with numerous shots at goal while putting balls into the box for his teammates.
Wallace hasn’t made an assist since West Brom’s 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough in July, but he did everything in his power to deliver. Joseph Chapman of Birmingham Live gave him a player rating of 7/10, saying the wide-man was a ‘real bright spark’.
Against Burnley, Wallace played for 90 minutes, had 64 touches, won one aerial duel, completed 72.7% of his 33 passes, created one chance, had five shots with 60% hitting the target, whipped in 10 shots with 20% finding a teammate, made one interception, had one dribble and won one free kick.
The 28-year-old has made nine appearances in all competitions since joining West Brom, scoring two goals with one assist. Wallace had a hand in 18 goals from 38 Championship games last season, but he’s not been as consistent since leaving Millwall.
Wallace did well against Burnley though, so he will hope to impress against Coventry City on Saturday.
