West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo has heaped praise on winger Jerome Thomas following his brilliant performance against Reading on the weekend.

The 26-year old former Arsenal youth player netted a double to help the Baggies overcome the Royals 3-1 at The Hawthorns and Di Matteo was happy the August signing was beginning to shine through.

“Jerome was very dangerous. He had looked sharp in training and we were trying to convert that into games," said Di Matteo.

Thomas signed with West Brom as a free agent following stints with Portsmouth, Charlton and QPR.
