Baggies boss Darren Moore wants more of the same from Sam Field after his first goal of the season helped Albion to a 2-0 victory at Bolton. 

Jay Rodriguez headed Albion in front before half time before Field poked home the Baggies' second with 15 minutes to play. 

Field came off the bench to replace the injured Chris Brunt and impressed alongside fellow Academy graduate Rekeem Harper. 

“Sam’s goal meant a lot to him because he eats, sleeps and breathes this football club," said Moore. 

"That will have been a special moment for him and his family tonight. Long may that continue and long may Sam continue to give that level of performance. 

“For him to come off the bench, step straight in, and perform the way he has - he was a credit to himself. 

“I thought Rekeem took another step in terms of building a platform.”

“I thought both Rekeem and Sam were excellent, as was Gareth Barry, but the two youngsters put in mature performances. 

“We’ve worked with them and it’s a proud moment for the club and the academy. The work they’ve put in, they got their reward today. 

“They’ve been in the first-team squad since the start of the season and we’ve been working with them behind the scenes, alongside the pros. 

“They’re getting their reward now with the injuries that we’ve picked up and they’ve stepped in.

“Both of them gave great performances and showed maturity considering they’re quite young.”
