Baggies come from behind to claim three points
A superb individual goal from Jonathan Leko helped Albion’s Under-18 side to a 2-1 victory over Blackburn Rovers in the Barclays U18 Premier League on Saturday.
The hosts opened the scoring in the 12th minute, but the Baggies hit back just ten minutes later when Rahis Nabi smashed the ball home from an indirect free-kick.
The match-winning moment came in the 52nd minute, when England Under-17 international Leko picked up the ball 30-yards from goal, glided past four defenders and fired into the top corner from just inside the penalty area.
ALBION: Ross, Wilson (Piggott 89), O’Shea, Fitzwater, Melbourne, R.Nabi (Dool 89), Smith, Elbouzedi, Leko, Forss, Roberts (Field 78).
Unused subs: Hall, Okoh.
