Albion ended their wait for a goal and another Premier League point after a 2-2 draw at Turf Moor. 

The Baggies were on course to end their winless streak after Salomon Rondon and Craig Dawson both found the back of the net. 

But Albion had to settle for a point after a late equaliser. Here's what the press had to say.

The shares were spoiled at Turf Moor after a lively second half saw Burnley and West Brom share four goals.

Sam Vokes’ double sandwiched an overdue goal for Salomon Rondon and birthday boy Craig Dawson as the Baggies ended their goal drought and run of defeats.

Tony Pulis made four changes to the side that lost to Leicester last time out; Darren Fletcher returned, Marc Wilson made his bow, James McClean was recalled and Sam Field was given a run-out.

Salomon Rondon scored his first Baggies goal in nearly five months, swivelling on the ball in the six yard box in the 66th minute to level the scores after a superb James McClean touch had fashioned the chance.

Birthday boy Craig Dawson looked to have won it with a header from a Chris Brunt corner in the 78th minute, but then Sam Vokes - who had opened the scoring 10 minutes after half-time - added his second with a looping header over Ben Foster four minutes from time.


Tasked with scoring a goal for the first time in nearly two months, Albion, remarkably, responded with two in the 12 minutes, after almost nine barren hours of football.

Salomón Rondón, who has endured his own personal anguish in that regard, restored parity. The Venezuelan had not scored since a hat-trick against Swansea on December 14 but he expertly steered the ball beyond Tom Heaton after James McClean’s elusive running had created an opening.


After a forgettable first half, Vokes' 56th-minute opener ignited proceedings at Turf Moor, with the Baggies scoring twice in 12 minutes through Salomon Rondon and Craig Dawson having previously gone nearly nine hours without a goal.

Yet a first victory on their travels since New Year's Eve would elude them as Vokes capitalised on Ben Foster's poor decision to come for a free-kick to level with four minutes remaining, taking the Clarets to 40 points, which will be enough to secure survival if Swansea fail to beat Everton.
