West Brom draw again as Jed Wallace equals Tino Anjorin’s brace at Huddersfield

Tino Anjorin and Jed Wallace shared four goals as Huddersfield drew 2-2 at home to West Brom.

A fourth stalemate of the season for Steve Bruce’s Baggies saw them stay mid-table while his former club dropped a place in the bottom two.

Anjorin’s brace came in the first half hour and both were fine finishes, the first a curling effort from the corner of the box and the second after his powerful runs on goal.

West Brom struggled early on but Wallace pulled one back with an easy finish less than 10 minutes into the first half.

Wallace’s second after 56 minutes was another effort from close range as Huddersfield again looked shaky at the back.

The home side started well and when Anjorin turned midway and ran into the box his square ball was cleared by Semi Ajayi on his own bar under pressure from Danny Ward.

West Brom cleared the corner at the expense of another and when it was played by Sorba Thomas to Anjorin in the corner of the box, the Chelsea man curled a delicious right-footed shot into the top corner to give Town a deserved lead with 11 minutes. faded away.

West Brom needed an answer and a fine reaction from Lee Nicholls kept Huddersfield’s lead intact when he ducked to their right to deny a close-range shot from Okay Yokuslu on 20 minutes.

Nicholls was called on again to block Karlan Grant’s shot from a Wallace ball into the box as the half-hour mark approached.

Anjorin then doubled the lead by winning a run with Dara O’Shea for a loose ball down the right before running and beating David Button at his near post.

West Brom were back eight minutes before the break as Wallace was left unmarked in the area to slip past Nicholls after a reduction from Grady Diangana.

The visitors started the second half stronger and they leveled when an unmarked Wallace volleyed after John Swift created the chance with a dinked pass.

The home side lost Anjorin, making his comeback in that game after a leg injury, shortly after the goal as he limped off and West Brom pressed again as Nicholls beat another effort from Grant before that Diangana does not steal a good opportunity.

Huddersfield needed a spark as West Brom took control of midfield but after a Thomas corner kick saw the ball bounce into the area the visitors broke and nearly claimed a third as Yokuslu was rising unmarked in the area but headed for the bar.

Substitute Jordan Rhodes then headed the wide goal when he should have done better and Josh Ruffels fired against the post in the dying minutes as Huddersfield searched in vain for a winner in a frantic finish.
