In a recent match, Grady Diangana delivered what could be considered his most impressive performance of the season as West Brom secured a 2-0 victory over Queens Park Rangers. The turning point of the Championship game occurred when Jimmy Dunne received a red card around the hour mark. This dramatic turn of events, with the score tied at 0-0, raised expectations among the home supporters at The Hawthorns.
Following Dunne’s dismissal, West Brom capitalized on the opportunity, quickly securing a lead. Brandon Thomas-Asante converted a penalty, and shortly thereafter, Diangana added a second goal to their tally. This crucial win, coupled with a clean sheet, propelled West Brom to fifth place in the league table, with Diangana shining under the management of Carlos Corberan.
Diangana, the standout player, not only scored a goal but also excelled in other aspects of the game. He won all four of his duels with a perfect 100% success rate, maintained an 88% passing accuracy, and even earned a penalty for his team, as reported by Sofascore. Additionally, the 25-year-old successfully completed his sole dribble attempt, delivered three key passes, and contributed defensively with one tackle. To top it off, he came close to scoring another goal but hit the woodwork.
This performance marks Diangana’s first goal of the season, despite having limited playing time in his previous eight matches. With fellow attacker John Swift sidelined due to injury, Diangana now has a golden opportunity for consistent playing time, and he did not disappoint in that regard against QPR.
