Nouble off to a flier

Frank Nouble got off to a winning start for West Bromwich Albion after his loan club moved top of the Coca-Cola Championship with a 2-0 home win against Scunthorpe United.

The 18-year-old forward sealed his month-long switch to the Hawthorns earlier on Tuesday and was then named in Roberto Di Matteo's starting eleven. Nouble played 75 minutes in an attacking role on the left as Roman Bednar put West Brom on their way to victory before Gianni Zuiverloon wrapped up the victory late in the contest. With Newcastle United losing, West Brom have taken top spot.
