An incredible second-half turnaround fired Albion to a 4-1 win at Huddersfield on Sunday afternoon.

Following a tough opening 45 minutes, the Terriers held a narrow advantage via Delano Burgzorg’s effort.

However, Carlos Corberán’s men came roaring back after the interval, as Mikey Johnston (2), Okay Yokuslu and Kyle Bartley scored four excellent goals, securing three huge points.

The boss made two changes to his starting XI, replacing Erik Pieters and Tom Fellows with Kyle Bartley and Andi Weimann.

His side found it difficult during the first half, though, and went one down through Burgzorg’s 30th-minute finish.

In truth, they were fortunate not to be two behind at the break - Bartley coming to the rescue by putting in a superb goal-saving tackle when Jack Rudoni looked like netting.

But a quite sensational second period really began six minutes after the restart, Weimann cleverly evading offside to set-up Johnston, who equalised from close-range.

And Albion soon edged ahead. Alex Mowatt’s dangerous corner caused utter chaos and Bartley was there, scrambling home for 1-2.

They did not stop there, either. The best of the lot arrived on the 66-minute mark - Yokuslu letting fly 25-yards out and finding the top corner with an absolute screamer.

The Baggies then completed an eye-catching scoreline at the same time as Johnston secured his brace, the winger running free down the left, coasting past Huddersfield’s defence and sliding a wonderful finish between Lee Nicholls’s legs.
