WBA-MAD Player Ratings: Forest 1 Albion 1

Last updated : 08 August 2018 By Wba-mad Editor

WBA-MAD editor Iain Bate rates the Albion players as Darren Moore gets his first point of the season. 

Sam Johnstone: Made a couple of important saves. Should've done better with Forest's opener .6/10

Kieran Gibbs: Looked shakey at times but a much better performance than against Bolton. Set up Albion's equaliser. 6/10

Ahmed Hegazi: Constantly gave the ball away and had to rely on last ditch tackles and blocks after his mistake put Albion under pressure. Doesn't look comfortable with the faster pace of the Championship. 5/10. 

Kyle Bartley: Albion's best defender at the City Ground. Tried to build from the back and had to cover Hegazi all game. 6/10.

Tosin Adarabioyo: Given his league debut at right back. Had a difficult evening but was reliable enough when called upon. 6/10. 

Harvey Barnes: Struggled with his defensive duties in the first half when Forest pressed down Albion's left. Came into the game more when pushed into the middle. Should've scored late on when his shot hit the crossbar. 6/10

Chris Brunt: Worked tireless to keep Forest out and then to get Albion back into the game. Still too deep to affect the play. Always a threat from set pieces. 6/10

Jake Livermore: Back, sidewards, back, sidewards. Somebody tell Jake he can pass the ball forward. Looked really flat-footed as Forest's midfielders danced around him. Always competitive but had zero impact. 6/10. 

Matt Phillips: Again was Albion's biggest threat. Scored a brilliant volley to rescue a point and set up Albion's best chance in the first half with a wicked cross. 7/10. 

James Morrison: His first game back in forever and it showed. The game passed him by and is clearly lacking match fitness. Needs games to settle back in. 5/10. 

Jay Rodriguez: Worked tirelessly in the first half and should've given Albion the lead from close range on the stroke of half time. Drifted out of the game after the break. 6/10. 


Dwight Gayle: Came on to help drag Albion back into the game. It worked as the Baggies finally looked threatening up front. Will be disappointed not to score when his shot hit the post. The bright spark Albion needed on a difficult night. 6/10. 

Hal Robson-Kanu: Brought on in the final seconds. Fell over a few times. No chance to make an impact. 5/10.
