Albion defender Ben White appeared lucky to escape injury after being elbowed in the face today.

White, on loan at Leeds, was flattened by Aleksandar Mitrovic early in the home match against Fulham.

Referee Tony Harrington and his assistants missed the incident and, with VAR not in operation, any punishment for former Albion target Mitrovic will only be retrospective.

White required treatment but was able to continue.

He went on to give another impressive performance as Leeds won 3-0.



The result leaves them well set to secure promotion although White is expected to return to Albion for next season.
