Journalist Joe Chapman was impressed by Grady Diangana in the first half for West Brom v Preston after what he has described as an “erratic” start from the winger.

The Birmingham Live journalist claimed Diangana had a slow start to the game before growing into it slowly, after beating his man on the wing and swinging a cross into the box, causing danger for the Preston defence.

Diangana has been relied upon as a creative outlet out wide in his last couple of games, and his performance today is starting to justify that call, causing all sorts of problems for the defence.
Chapman shared his view via his personal Twitter account on Saturday 30 September, stating: “Lovely from Diangana, who spins his man on the wing.

“Been a little erratic early on but that was more like it. Cross is met by [John] Swift, who heads it up in the air, and Okay [Yokuslu] blasts it over the bar.”

After a difficult start to the season, the winger will need to step up his performances to provide more of a creative impact on the game going forward, with the competition now in the squad to challenge for his place.

Diangana signs permanent deal with West Brom
Rumours suggested he may be sold in the summer in an attempt to raise funds as the Baggies aimed to balance the books in their ongoing financial difficulties, but no move arrived for him and he is now seeing more game time under Carlos Corberan.
The boss has played Diangana wide as he feels he can provide more creativity to the attack rather than Jed Wallace, with his technical ability and quality tasked with creating chances for the side.

His erratic start to the game sums up his time at West Brom as he has failed to make the mark he would have hoped for, but with more game time comes more of a comfortable feel around his game, and he is now beginning to step up for his side.
