WBA-MAD Player Ratings: Ipswich 1 Albion 2

Last updated : 25 November 2018 By Iain Bate - Wba-mad Editor

Albion made it back-to-back wins after goals from Jay Rodriguez and Harvey Barnes earned a 2-1 victory at Ipswich. 

The Baggies looked comfortable throughout but made it difficult for themselves after conceeding a sloppy late goal. 

Here's our player ratings: 

Sam Johnstone: Looked comfortable throughout and had very little to do. Commanded his area well late on when Town pushed for an equaliser to ease the pressure. 6/10

Tosin Adarabioyo: Did well but his performance will be remembered for his terrible defensive error that led to Ipswich's goal. Looking more settled now at right back. 6/10

Ahmed Hegazi: Amazing the turnaround in Hegazi since switching to a back four. Looked rock solid throughout and more at ease when he's not asked to play out from the back. 7/10

Craig Dawson: Another who is benefiting from defending rather than having to build attacks. A comfortable evening for Dawson, who is building a solid partnership with Hegazi. 6/10

Kieran Gibbs: Really solid from Gibbo. Defended really well and pushed forward when possible. 7/10

James Morrison: Not as influencial as he was against Leeds but still a solid show from Mr Albion. Seemed to tired towards the end and was replaced late on. 6/10

Jake Livermore: Another who seems more comfortable in a more conventional formation. Kept everything neat and tidy and was always in the right place to break up Ipswich's attacks. 6/10

Matt Phillips: Worked hard in Albion's engine room but his final ball wasn't quite right against the Tractor boys. 6/10

Hal Robson-Kanu: Another who didn't hit the heights as he did against Leeds, but did OK up top. May be disappointed not to find the back of the net with his opportunities. 6/10

Jay Rodriguez: Seemed to drift in and out of the game but his excellent movement helped Albion open the scoring and net his 100th career goal. 6/10

Harvey Barnes: Didn't influence the game much until his fine goal in the second half. However, it's a welcome habit of him popping up with a goal despite him not playing well. 6/10. 


Dwight Gayle: The game may have been well out of reach had Gayle had some of Albion's chances in front of goal before his introduction. As it turned out, he didn't have one chance in his 15 minute cameo. 6/10

Gareth Barry: Brought on in the final minutes to try and see out the game. Made a couple of important headers and clearances. 6/10
