West Brom beat Reading 1-0 in the Championship this afternoon.
West Brom welcomed Reading in the Championship today, with the Baggies starting the day in 3rd-place of the Championship table and the Royals in 20th.
Valerien Ismael has been come under scrutiny in recent weeks but in the previous outing v Coventry City and in the opening hour of today’s game, the Baggies looked much better.
And they were eventually rewarded with the opening and only goal of the game soon after the hour mark – Callum Robinson scoring with his fourth league goal of the campaign.
Though it was Taylor Gardner-Hickman who once again stood out. The 19-year-old started his second game in a row and thoroughly impressed.
See what these West Brom fans had to say on Twitter about the Englishman’s performance today:

Gardner-Hickman is simply quality.

Seems a cliche, but its the fact Gardner-Hickman is comfortable with both feet that makes him stand out…
