West Bromwich Albion’s run up the English Football League championship table continued on Saturday, when Daryl Dyke led Carlos Corveran’s side to a come-from-behind victory over promotion rivals.
Dyke scored his third league goal of the season in West Brom’s 3-2 win over Luton Town at Kenilworth, moving the Baggies to sixth in the league standings. The US men’s national team striker made the most of his chances by starting in place of suspended Brandon his Thomas his Asante.
West Brom got a lifeline as Dyke scored past USMNT teammate Ethan Horvath despite Luton Town leading 2–0 early on. Embankments were played behind Luton Town’s back line in the 39th minute, beating Horvath to a loose ball before fending off the rushing goalkeeper.
West Brom put the pressure on in the second half and eventually turned the momentum completely in their favour. Jason Morumby equalized in the 65th minute and Conor Townsend finished close in the 67th minute to give the Baggies a 3-2 advantage.
Dyke scored 90 minutes in victory, winning five duels, hitting the crossbar once and drawing one foul. This marked Dyke’s latest impressive performance since returning to his club activities.
West Brom are now on a four-game winning streak in the league and will host Chesterfield in the FA Cup replay on Tuesday. The Baggies will also visit his championship leaders Burnley on Friday.
