The two struggling sides locked horns at the Hawthorns on Saturday, with the relegation six-pointer ending with no victor, no vanquished
Four players of Nigerian descent were on the starting team sheets of both clubs as West Brom played out a thrilling 2-2 draw with Fulham at the Hawthorns.
Fulham boss Scott Parker deployed both Tosin Adarabioyo and Ola Aina at the centre of a three-man defence and set attacker Ademola Lookman in the left-wing forward role.
West Brom manager Sam Allardyce also called on Super Eagles defender Semi Ajayi to man a defence that also had Kyle Bartley and Dara O’Shea.
The day started horribly for the Baggies after the home side fell to a 10th-minute opener from Bobby Reid, only to lose O’Shea to an injury 15 minutes later.
But the hosts fought back admirably to level proceedings shortly after the interval through Kyle Bartley.
Matheus Pereira then pounced on a pass from substitute Mbaye Diagne in the 66th minute to hand Allardyce’s men the lead for the first time in the game.
Six minutes later, the match was back on levelled terms. Harrison Reed sent in a great cross, which Ivan Cavaleiro met with a fine header to drag the visitors back in the clash.
