Ghanaian Brandon Thomas-Asante praised for role in West Brom's win over Norwich

West Broms faint hopes of making the Championship playoffs were kept alive thanks to a crucial 2-1 win over Norwich City at the Hawthorns on Saturday.However, it was the energy and endeavour of Ghanaian striker Brandon Thomas-Asante that caught the attention of Sky Sports co-commentator Don Goodman.Thomas-Asante played a key role in the lead-up to West Brom’s winner, winning the ball deep inside just past the halfway line before driving forward and playing a timely pass to Conor Townsend.Townsend then delivered a cross across the six-yard box for Jed Wallace to sweep home.Speaking on Sky Sports co-commentary, Goodman said: Its never over till its over but Thomas-Asante plays a massive part in this. I spoke about his decision-making earlier on in the game, taking shots from places that he shouldnt but this time he gets his decisions all right because Townsend the skipper makes him a brilliant offer there and then theyve got bodies, three in the box.The win means that West Brom now need a win against Swansea on the last day of the season and other results to go in their favour if they are to secure a playoff spot.
