Kenneth Zohore again stepped up to rescue a point for Albion with the big Dane scoring another late penalty to maintain the Baggies’ unbeaten start to the season.

Zohore slotted home in the 84th minute on a controversial afternoon at Pride Park. Albion’s penalty was the third of the afternoon after Martyn Waghorn had been brought down by Kieran Gibbs in the 6th minute.

Derby were then awarded another spot-kick when the ball hit Filip Krovinovic’s shoulder but the linesman inexplicably flagged for a penalty. Luckily for Albion, Sam Johnstone made a fantastic save from Waghorn.

Albion boss Slaven Bilic was then shown his marching orders for dissent towards the officials as the Baggies were again on the wrong of a poor decision when Jake Livermore’s goal-bound effort was deflected over but a goal kick awarded for the Rams.

"A lot of decisions I'm not happy about,” Baggies boss Slaven Bilic said after the game.  

“I don't want to talk a lot about them but they affect my job and everybody that is part of the West Brom family so I can give my comments in a nice way and a polite way.

"Nothing personal, but I wasn't happy. For me, there were too many (poor decisions) of them so I reacted a few times, for the penalty and the corner that wasn't given to us when it was an obvious deflection.

The draw is the third time this season Albion have come from behind on their travels and extended the Baggies unbeaten run to five games.
