West Brom 1-2 West Ham: Tomkins seals comeback victory for the Hammers against Albion

West Ham defender James Tomkins got on the scoresheet as the London side came from behind to take all three points at the Hawthorns, reports BBC Sport.

The hosts took the lead inside of 10 minutes through Craig Dawson. The Albion defender headed home from a Graham Dorrans free-kick to put West Brom 1-0 up earn in the first-half.

But his joy was somewhat short-lived with Kevin Nolan levelling the game, after Andy Carroll saw his overhead kick saved by Ben Foster in the Albion goal.

And before half-time, Tomkins scored the decisive goal to put United ahead right at the break. The Hammers centre-back headed home Stewart Downing’s corner in first-half injury time, and that earned West Ham all three points.

West Brom had a total of 23 shots in their clash against West Ham, but only five were on target, which summed up their problem.
