West Bromich Albion made a surprise capture of Reading`s Sam Sodje at the end of last week. Sodje has joined the Baggies on a month long loan deal.
Sodje was drafted in by WBA boss Tony Mowbray as cover after injury ended Curtis Davies`s season and the suspension of Martin Albrechtsen meant that West Brom were short at the back.
'Sam will bring both a real competitive edge and athleticism to the team,' commented Mowbray ahead of Sodje`s move to the Midlands based club, 'He's as big a presence in the opposition box as he is defending in his own penalty area because he attacks the ball exceptionally well.'
And since then Sodje has played his first competitive game in a Baggies shirt. Sodje started the local derby match against Birmingham on Sunday morning. The match was vital to both clubs who are chasing automatic promotion to the Premiership.
The game ended in a draw a 1-1 draw between the two sides but Mowbray was very impressed with Sodje`s performance:
"Sam did very well," he said "I can`t remember him putting a foot wrong."
