New West Bromwich Albion head coach Slaven Bilic has already seen his side return four points from an available six in the early stages of the 2019/20 Championship campaign, and with plenty of improvements still to be made as newbies settle in, he would’ve been hopeful of adding another three points to our tally as we travelled to Kenilworth Road earlier today to face newly promoted Luton Town.
Although the hosts took advantage in the 15th minute, West Brom’s biggest disappointment was we only got three efforts on goal from a whopping 24 shots. However, a quick second half brace from loanee Grady Diangana makes that a moot point for tonight, as he secured all three points in a 2-1 victory.
Having come off the bench at the break, Bilic will have been thrilled with his impact.
Speaking to the BBC following the full time whistle, the Croatian gaffer said of the game.
“A great three points. Luton are a good team, with a brave manager who likes to play football. We weren’t brave enough in the first half, The final ball and the movement was not there. We needed a bit of spark and we got one from Grady. We had help from a deflection for Grady’s second goal, but you have to be there to benefit and in the first half we weren’t. Grady did exactly what I wanted. He helped the team and the team helped him.”
