A hat-trick from highly-rated West Brom winger Rayhaan Tulloch saw Rovers lose at home to the Baggies at Brockhall Village.

After a fairly even first half, it was Tulloch who handed West Brom the lead on the stroke of half time, slotting home after being found in the box by Jamie Soule.

But Billy Barr's side responded and man in form Kyle Connell headed home a Daniel Pike cross 10 minutes into the second half to level the game up.

But with 12 minutes remaining, the visitors regained the lead when Morgan Rogers fired in a penalty just before Tulloch added his second and his side's third of the day just a minute later.

The attacker completed his treble towards the end as his free kick took a wicked deflection and flew past Jordan Eastham in the Rovers goal to earn the points for the Midlanders.
