Result: Brown Ideye strikes late in West Bromwich Albion tour win

Brown Ideye scores another late winner for West Bromwich Albion in their pre-season game against Richmond Kickers.

Brown Ideye secured a second pre-season friendly win in three days for West Bromwich Albion after his 89th-minute strike saw the Baggies beat Richmond Kickers this evening.

The game was initially delayed for an hour after heavy rain in Virginia forced the players off in the opening minutes.

Once play resumed, James McLean gave the Black Country outfit the lead when his dipping shot from 25 yards found the back of the net.

On 18 minutes, West Brom almost added a second when Victor Anichebe headed wide from Callum McManaman's cross.

McManaman was in the thick of the action again after the break when his intended cross was headed off the line as the Baggies tried to convert their chances into a comfortable lead.

They were punished five minutes from time when Nate Shiffman netted an equaliser for the United Soccer League outfit.

However, West Brom secured victory in the dying moments thanks to Ideye's bullet header from a pinpoint Stephane Sessegnon's cross.
