Semi Ajayi's West Brom Took Ebere Eze's QPR to the Cleaner

Nigeria defender, Semi Ajayi was defensively solid as Albion extended their unbeaten start to the Sky Bet Championship campaign as they saw off Eberechi Eze's QPR 2-0 courtesy of maiden goals from Nathan Ferguson and Matheus Pereira.

Baggies Academy graduate Ferguson, 18, netted a superb solo goal - carrying the ball from his own half before drilling a fierce 25-yard strike into the bottom corner and celebrating in front of the 2,124 Baggies faithful at Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Summer loan signing Pereira then made sure of all three points late on when he sent a low free-kick under the wall and into the back of the net, coming after Yoann Barbet had seen red for bringing down substitute Hal Robson-Kanu when clean through.

The Baggies pair picked the perfect moment to open their accounts for the club, ensuring Slaven Bilić's side have now gone their opening nine league matches without tasting defeat - only the third time in the club's history.

It was also a maiden clean sheet for Albion this season, coming in a game which saw them open the scoring for only the second time this term.

Semi Ajayi was on display from start till finish while the subdued Eberechi Eze was replaced by another Nigerian, Bright Osayi-Samuel in the 70th minute.
