west brom players celebrate after victory

West Brom mounted a superb late comeback to beat QPR 2-1 and return to the top of the Championship on Friday night.

Valerien Ismael’s men had the better of the chances throughout the first half, but went in behind at the break, after Andre Gray had given Rangers the lead inside 45 seconds.

For much of the second half the hosts were kept at bay, though when they finally found they way back into the game, the equaliser came in fortuitous circumstances as goalkeeper Seny Dieng failed to hold Karlan Grant’s shot and pushed the ball into the back of his own net.

As the noise from the home fans increased, Grant was the matchwinner in the penultimate minute of the 90 as he finished off a delightfully crafted Baggies move to preserve their unbeaten start to the league season and send them to the summit . QPR, meanwhile, stay eighth after their third defeat of the season.
