West Brom got themselves a much needed win with a momentous 3-2 derby day victory over Wolves this afternoon.
Two penalties from Matheus Pereira and a goal from Semi Ajayi were enough to see the Baggies home after they came from 2-1 down to beat Nuno Santo’s men.
The Baggies had led through Pereira’s early penalty but were pegged back just before half-time when Fabio Silva and then Willy Boly netted for the home side to make it 2-1 at the break.
But Sam Allardyce got into his players during the interval and two quick fire goals from Ajayi and Pereira swung the pendulum in West Brom’s favour. It was a lead they would not relinquish as they secured a huge three points away from home.
West Brom fans were all over Twitter celebrating the win but in particular, the display from Ajayi, who impressed a number of Baggies fans with his fine efforts at Molineux.
Knighthood for Semi Ajayi. Thanks @OfficialRUFC 😘

GET IN THERE!!!!! Bartley and Ajayi immense!!! If we can get a centre forward who can hold the ball and another defensive midfielder we may be ok. Tactics spot on today and the game plan worked.
