West Brom fans react to Sam Johnstone's display in loss against Leeds United

West Brom came away from their Championship heavyweight clash against Leeds United with nothing last night, suffering their first defeat of the league season.

The result is vastly improved from the 4-0 drubbing they got last term at Leeds and the display contained plenty of strong individual performances, and arguably should have earned a draw.

There’s a feeling that if West Brom can keep this up then they will have every chance of getting back to the Premier League this time around and Johnstone put in a display worthy of a top flight goalkeeper last night.

The fans loved it and there was plenty of love for the stopper on Twitter despite West Brom bringing no points back from Yorkshire…
