Jack Hinshelwood was goalscorer and goal-saver as he secured Albion the home win they so craved.

The versatile teen headed the winner as his side came from behind to beat Brentford 2-1.

He rose at the far post and nodded home a delicious hanging cross from Pascal Gross on 52 minutes.

Just moments earlier, Hinshelwood had cleared off the line from Yoane Wissa after the otherwise excellent Gross had been beaten in the left-back position.

Simon Adingra might have given Albion the insurance they wanted but his sidefoot volley was well saved by Mark Flekken and a curler drifted inches wide with the keeper rooted to the spot.

But Albion had the organisation and energy to see the result through.

They always score and always concede – and it took 31 minutes for that to continue.

The concession was more of a surprise this time.

After no threat from Brentford – and domination without great menace from the hosts - it was the former who went in front on 27 minutes.

A stumbling Jan Paul van Hecke brought down Vitaly Janelt with a challenge which was deemed just inside the box.

Igor’s covering run probably ensured the card shown to van Hecke was yellow.

Bryan Mbeumo dispatched a perfect spot kick into the bottom corner.

Albion took just four minutes to respond.

Billy Gilmour got them going, there was some good work from Hinshelwood to keep the ball and move it on and then play was switched to the left.

Mitoma pulled the ball back and Gross sent a superb left-foot finish with pace, precision and bit of curl across Flekken and inside the far post.
