House ‘eager’ for Reading PL2 clash

5 January 2020

Brad House is excited to get back into the thick of the action for Albion’s PL2 side when they take on Reading at Aggborough Stadium on Monday night (ko 7pm).

The young goalkeeper who arrived at Albion’s Academy in 2015 following his release from Arsenal is ready to be called upon against the Royals, who Albion lost to earlier in the season at the Madejski Stadium.

But House says the Baggies are keen to avenge their previous defeat and continue their good form in the Premier League 2 Division Two.

“I can’t wait to back into the swing of things,” said House. 

“It’s been a nice break away from football but I’m more eager than ever to get going again and get three points to keep us in the running for a chance of promotion this season.

“Reading are always a good side, they’re always physical and athletic so we have to be on the front foot right from the first whistle to make sure we are first to every ball and out work and out fight them in every battle.

“The season so far has been successful in my opinion. From the first game losing to Man United 5-0 to now being sat third in the league, it’s shown that we’ve grouped together and bonded well and in quick succession as well. 

“For me personally I think I’ve grown as a player again and feel as one of the older players becoming more of a leader on the pitch as this time of the season younger lads will be coming through and they’ll always need someone to help and guide them through the game and hopefully I can assist that matter.”

Match Reports

Albion PL2 4 Reading PL2 2

6 January 2020

Albion’s PL2 side came back from two goals behind to beat Reading in a thrilling encounter at Aggborough Stadium on Monday night.

The visitors opened the scoring when Oliver Pendlebury cushioned a cross into the path of Adam Liddle, and doubled their advantage just before the break through Thierry Nevers.

But the Baggies would fight back in the second period. Rayhaan Tulloch’s side-footed strike provided the platform for an impressive comeback, with Chris Willock chopping into the box and curling an effort into the top corner to level the scores.

Willock would then provide the lofted through ball for Tulloch to fire in his second as Albion took the lead for the first time. 

With less than ten minutes to play, the visitors had the chance to equalise from the penalty spot after Willock was adjudged to have tripped Ryan Crooks. Yet Brad House made an impressive low save from the spot to keep out Liddle and mantain the advantage for the Baggies.

With just minutes to play, Willock secured the points for Albion by cutting inside once more and lashing a left-footed strike past Coniah Boyce-Clark.

ALBION: House; White, Martinez, Shotton, Harmon; Azaz, Solanke; Clayton-Phillips, Tulloch, Willock; Soule.

Substitutes: Cann, Dyce, Brown, Wilding, Morton.
