Andy Carroll chose a special moment for his first Baggies goal as West Brom fought back from 2-0 down to strike twice in a matter of minutes against Huddersfield

West Brom signalled there is still life in their bid for promotion from the Sky Bet Championship, as they staged a late fightback to hold Huddersfield to a 2-2 draw.

A goal either side of half-time from Danny Ward had put Carlos Corberan’s automatic promotion-chasing Terriers in control of the game, but a controversially-awarded penalty allowed Karlan Grant to halve the deficit against his former employers.

Andy Carroll then glanced in a cross to level within 60 seconds and there was even time for Grant to hit the crossbar in the final minute of normal time.

As a result, Huddersfield leapfrog Bournemouth back into second place – after extending their unbeaten run to 17 matches – with West Brom now up to 12th and seven points off the play-off spots ahead of Saturday’s fixtures.
