It was a disappointing Tuesday evening for West Bromwich Albion fans as we again welcomed Millwall to The Hawthorns, but this time for our first round EFL Cup clash.

Having been held to a point in the weekend’s Championship action, deadline day signing Charlie Austin got off to a flying start in our shirt as he found the back of the net after just nine minutes of the tie being played. With us unable to make more of our better control of the game, Millwall hit back twice to take the win and dump us out of the Cup.

With some positives, and again negatives coming from the game, at least seeing 30-year-old Austin get off the mark in his debut was something that gave the fans a reason to smile. There’s a big weight on the former Southampton man’s shoulders when it comes to replacing the goal threat of Jay Rodriguez and Dwight Gayle, so that goal should certainly help him settle in.

Contrary to some of the comments coming from Southampton fans when he signed, some fans of his former side were happy to congratulate him for getting off the mark as well.
