West Bromwich Albion lost heavily to Derby County yesterday evening in our midweek Championship clash.
Jay Rodriguez’s late 83rd-minute goal was only a consolation in a 4-1 defeat by Frank Lampard’s side and although there wasn’t a lot between the sides statistically, they did edge the game but whether they edged it by four goals is open for debate.
It was a poorer showing once again though but we’ll have days like that.
A noticeable omission from the starting lineup was Ahmed Hegazi and it had been confirmed shortly before the game that he would be missing with a hamstring injury.
Hegazi has a tight hamstring by the way. Interesting to see which CB plays the sweeper role in his absence.

I'm told Heagazi misses out tonight with a hamstring injury. No indication yet if he'll be fit for Saturday. #wba

With no clear indication yesterday evening on how long the Egyptian international could be missing, short of the line that he was a speculative doubt for this weekend’s tie against Blackburn Rovers, despite being on the end of criticism for his defensive performances so far this year, there will be a number of West Brom fans hoping he makes the game in time purely on the back of last night’s showing given the scoreline.
