Tom Rogic continued his excellent resurgence of form with a classy assist in West Bromwich Albion’s 2-0 win at Bristol City on Boxing Day in the English Championship.
Rogic, who came on in the 64th minute, played a neat pass down the inside-left channel for Brandon Thomas-Asante, who still had plenty to do before taking his chance.
The Australian midfielder’s contribution comes after he scored a goal and provided an assist in games earlier this month, as the Baggies have won six of their past eight games under new boss Carlos Corberan
Birmingham Live rated Rogic 7/10 and wrote: “As good as Thomas-Asante’s finish was, it can’t be underestimated how lovely Rogic’s assist was – his third for the club, and all of them coming under Corberan.”
75’ | WHAT AN OUTRAGEOUS FINISH!
BTA is played in by Rogic and he chips a sumptuous effort over the goalkeeper and into the top corner! 🍟
🔴 0-2 💚💛 | #WBA
