Daryl Dike has earned top praise from the manager of English Championship club West Bromwich Albion after he delivered the winning goal against Reading.
Dike’s 60th-minute goal – his first at The Hawthorns a year and a day since signing for £7million – was the only one Albion managed against Reading despite a glut of first-half chances, but was enough to move them within a point of the play-off zone.
West Brom manager Carlos Corberan has described the striker as “a very important” player for his team.
“He had a long-term injury but he’s a very important player for us,” he said of Dike.
“The fitter he is, the better it is for the team. The more he trains, the better condition he’s in to perform.
“So there isn’t any doubt that he’s one very important player for us that we need to keep controlling, because he’s one player that we need in the box.”
Corberan added: “I think sometimes he plays against himself because he tries to do a lot of things.
“In the first half he made a lot of runs but not all in the right areas. But in the second half he was in the areas he needed to be a lot more.”
