Defender Jonas Olsson scored in the 53rd minute as a young and inexperienced back four held strong against today's continuous Boro attack. West Brom's players enjoyed their first away victory of the Premiership season. 23-year old goalkeeper Scott Carson performed admirably throughout the match.

Right back Gianni Zuiverloon (21) came over this season from Dutch club SC Heerenveen and controlled Stewart Downing for most of the match. Centre back Ryan Donk (22) on loan from Dutch outfit AZ almost scored in the 36th; centre back partner Jonas Olsson (25) did find the back of the net in the 53rd. He cam to the Baggies via Dutch side NEC. Rounding out the club's defense was left back Paul Robinson - the only experienced member of West Brom's back four.
