Callum Robinson became the 18th different West Brom player to score this season, emphasizing teamwork, placing them four points clearly at the top of the championship table.
“At most clubs you see that a striker achieves 30 percent of the goals, but we’ve been different throughout the season,” said Slaven Bilic, whose party had to accept a draw after a late Forest equalizer.
“We are leaders, but we share the goals.” Van Robinson, on loan from Sheffield United, said West Brom’s manager: “Of course it’s good to score your first for a new club.”
Callum Robinson was on the scoreboard when West Brom signed 2-2 with Nottingham Forest
Robinson, who grabbed the opener but was denied a stop-time winner by the flag of the linesman, had played 16 times in the Premier League this season. But the 25-year-old admitted that the opportunity for regular action at Albion was too tempting to resist.
“I was not out of view at Sheffield United, that’s the weird thing. I was given minutes, but it was still a bit annoying to want to start every game, “he said.
The only disappointment of Robinson was that the 96th minute goal was canceled because teammate Kyle Bartley was offside, lying in the net with his foot stretched out over the goal line.

“I have received many texts saying that Barts was already in the goal when the ball went inside. He doesn’t get involved because he’s in the net, so I don’t understand that, “Robinson said.
It was a fitting dramatic end to a tough match that referee Keith Stroud struggled to control. After Robinson fired Albion 37 minutes ahead, Bartley pierced his own net before the break to improve things.
Forest was furious after 65 minutes when a foul on Sammy Ameobi was not penalized and West Brom took the lead to make the score 2 – 1, giving Forest’s Tobias Figueiredo the final touch.
It spoke volumes to the visitors’ minds that they were able to level in 90 minutes with their first shot at goal – a Matty Cash cracker.

They remain in a play-off position, with skipper Ben Watson paying tribute to manager Sabri Lamouchi, who is learning quickly in his first season in England.
“He was willing to talk to people who have been playing here for a long time,” Watson said.
‘We know that we are not the best team, but in addition to quality we also have a fight and determination and that can sometimes convince you. There are 13 cup finals left. “
The mild Stroud only showed four yellow cards when both managers thought that red should have been embroidered. Watson insisted that players abroad learn something about the championship.
“In other competitions you can be tackled, spin around and get free kicks and bookings,” he said. ‘Sometimes in this competition you can definitely catch someone and nothing will be done about it. That happened a few times today. “
