Ireland midfielder Jayson Molumby played a pivotal role as West Brom kept their Championship play-off dreams alive at the weekend.

The Waterford man who is from Cappoquin scored a brace as the Baggies came from behind to beat Stoke City 2-1 away from home.

Molumby scored the equaliser just before the hour break and added his second just ten minutes later as his side secured a first away victory in eight matches on their travels.

The win leaves West Brom 11th in the table but just three points off sixth place Blackburn Rovers. They also have a game in hand on the teams between them and the former Premier League winners, with just five games left of the season.


Saturday marked Molumby's first start since Ireland's Euro 2024 qualifier at the Aviva Stadium against France last month after picking up an injury and boss Carlos Corberan heaped praise on his performance and character as he took a painkilling injection to alleviate ankle pain prior to the game.

“I think the personality and the goals that he has are very huge,” Corberan told reporters.

“The commitment that he has with himself, with the club, with the team, he was playing today with a lot of pain in the ankle.”

“He was having to have an injection to play today, yesterday he couldn’t complete training, only half, but he is going to make a career because he has the determination to make it.”

“Some people with adversity — they give up! And Molumby is not going to do that.”

The importance of Molumby's goals were also highlighted by the Spaniard.


“The most important goals we have scored so far are the ones we scored on Saturday,” he said.

“Because for me, this win means a lot, we stopped one momentum that was not the best momentum.”

While Molumby has returned to action with a bang, West Brom are still without the services of fellow Irish international Dara O'Shea who picked up a season-ending knee injury while on international duty last month.


West Brom are back in action on Tuesday night when they face relegation-threatened Blackpool.
