Andros Townsend is a bull, and the Baggies couldn’t body him.

[ RECAP: West Brom 2-0 Palace ]

The Crystal Palace man carried the ball somewhere close to 80 yards, marauding down the left flank before uncorking a ruthless left-footed shot.

That beat Ben Foster to give Palace a 2-0 win over hosts West Brom on Saturday. At times, the run resembled that big junior player the other kids can’t handle.

Townsend couldn’t find regular playing time under Alan Pardew despite the fact that he gives defenses fits across from Wilfried Zaha.

Regular playing time for Townsend may be the best move Sam Allardyce makes in Palace’s relegation scrap.
