Last updated : 30 September 2022 By Wba-mad Editor

Albion won their first game of the season after finally finding their scoring boots as they beat Hull City 5-2 at The Hawthorns. 

Following a disappointing 0-0 draw, Albion opened the scoring when Darnell Furlong's dangerous cross was turned home for an own goal. 

The lead was doubled after the break when Jon Swift got his first goal in front of the Hawthorns crowd when he fired home with this left foot from the edge of the area. 

The Baggies were looking threatening every time they went forward and Darnell Furlong fired an unstoppable shot from outside the 18-yard box to make it three. 

Karlon Grant got in on the action when he scored a penalty after former Hull City defender Conor Townsend was tripped in the area. 

The visitors got one back when the impressive Oscar Estupinan scored his first of the afternoon. 

Albion hit back almost immediately when Dara O'Shea helped to bundle the ball home for a fifth for the Baggies before Estupinan scored a late consolation for the visitors.
