Highlights of the Sky Bet Championship game between Derby and West Brom

Kenneth Zohore scored a late penalty when West Brom defeated Derby 1-1 in a controversial Pride Park clash.

Martyn Waghorn scored an early penalty for Derby before seeing another Sam Johnstone save a penalty before Zohore scored a point late for the baggies in the Sky Bet Championship encounter.

There was some controversy over awarding Waghorn's second penalty and Zohore's equalizer, but the spoils were shared when Phillip Cocu denied Derby's first home win and West Brom remained unbeaten.

Pride Park is punishable

It was a story of two Waghorn penalties in the first half. It was Kieran Gibbs' simple foul on the striker, and Waghorn moved in after six minutes.

Martyn Waghorn and Max Lowe believe the referee felt compelled to give West Brom a 1-1 draw with Derby for a late penalty in the first half.

After 43 minutes, the referee hinted at a handball by Filip Krovinovic, who apparently controlled the ball with the part of his arm right under his shoulder in the penalty area. This time Waghorn went in the other direction and Johnstone parried to his left, but also the goalkeeper of West Brom seemed to be off the penalty spot.

The Baggies had to do better in the first half when Romaine saw Sawyers keep Zohore clean in the penalty area, but Kelle Roos prevented the striker's tame attempt.

And just as it looked as if Derby was headed for victory under Cocu, there were more penalties six minutes from time.

Substitute Matheus Pereira was forced into the box by Max Lowe – although every contact there had to be absolutely minimal – and Zohore competed for the second time in a matter of days to score a late spot for the baggies.

An impressive achievement in both the defense and attack of Lowe as right-back. He caused problems for West Brom all afternoon and is unfortunate that he was penalized for the late penalty that cost his team.

The managers

Phillip Cocu"You know that a moment in football can change the result for you, and I'm very disappointed because I said to the boys at half-time that they should be careful in the 18-yard box, no stopping, no In this situation, you have to remain as a defender on your feet, I have not seen it, but I do not care, you give the referee the solution, if he touches or does not touch the player and stays on his feet, what can It's hard, it's hard for us, but that's why we do not have the three points.

"It's very disappointing, perhaps the worst of all the games, we have an early lead, we're off to a good start and if he scores the second penalty I think the win is up to us and we have three really good scoring chances in the second half but we could not. " do not get the second goal. "

Slaven Bilic: "I do not want to talk much about it, but it concerns my job and anyone who belongs to the West Brom family, so I can give my comments in a nice and polite way." Nothing personal, but not me, I was content with that and gave it to myself It was too many, so I responded a few times, because of the punishment and the corner that was not given to us when it was an obvious distraction.

From their point of view, I have overreacted, but in my view, not, I will have to work on it and master myself, I will have to calm down a bit, but I will always voice my opinion But I never become rude and never personal West Brom expects me to voice my opinion, who will give an opinion if it is not the manager?
