Last updated : 23 September 2018 By Iain Bate - Wba-mad Editor

Albion moved to within a point of the Championship leaders after hard-fought 2-0 win over Milwall. 

Second half goals from Dwight Gayle and Kieran Gibbs were enough for Darren Moore's men. 

Here's who caught the eye against the Lions: 

Sam Johnstone: Was lucky to go unpunished in the first half when he went walkabout but will be relieved with his first clean sheet of the season. 6/10. 

Craig Dawson: Looked to enjoy the physical battle against Morrison and won some important headers. 6/10. 

Ahmed Hegazi: Another improved performance who was unlucky not to score from Brunt's corner. 6/10. 

Kyle Bartley: Better from Bartley but will face stronger opposition in the coming weeks. 6/10. 

Matt Phillips: Wasn't as threatening as he has been in recent weeks. Subbed after an hour. 6/10. 

Kieran Gibbs: Popped up with Albion's second and was always willing to push forward where possible. 7/10. 

Jake Livermore: Had a physical battle on his hands and huffed and puffed his way around. 6/10. 

Chris Brunt: Recalled after missing out against Bristol City and set up Albion's first with another tempting set piece. 6/10. 

Harvey Barnes: Struggled to influence the game with little space between Milwall's defence and midfield. Subbed. 6/10. 

Jay Rodriguez: Another who struggled to get into the game and find any real space. 6/10. 

Dwight Gayle: Found himself in the right place at the right time to poke home Albion's first. A real poachers goal. 7/10. 

Subs

Tyrone Mears: Saw his first league action in an Albion shirt and fired in the cross that Gibbs volleyed home. 6/10. 

Wes Hoolahan: Showed some neat touches in his ten minute cameo. Looks to be a decent player for Albion to call upon from the bench. 6/10. 

Tosin Adarabioyoat: Came on for the final few minutes to help Albion keep their first clean sheet of the season. 5/10.
