Albion PL2 2 Fulham PL2 1

29 January 2018

ALBION’s under-23s made it back-to-back wins with a 2-1 victory over Fulham at a blustery Palm Training Ground.

The Baggies had the better of the opening period and went close through Callum Morton’s low drive that was deflected over and Alex Bradley’s powerful effort that flew over the crossbar. 

However, it was actually Fulham who took the lead just before the half hour mark when Lucas de la Torre’s long run ended in a shot that was deflected agonisingly past Alex Palmer.

After the break Albion came out firing and could have equalised when Morton found some space inside the area, but his shot from a tight angle was saved by Luca Ashby-Hammond.

James Shan’s side did finally get a goal on 82 minutes, though, thanks to a guided header from defender Kyle Howkins.

And the turnaround was complete just two minutes later when Bradley’s shot from the right hand side of the area squeezed into the bottom corner.

Michael Elstone headed over for Fulham in the final few minutes of the match but otherwise Albion’s defence stood firm to see the game out and claim a fantastic three points.
