Jason Davidson makes EPL debut

Australian left-back Jason Davidson made his English Premier League debut overnight, coming on as a second-half substitute in West Bromwich Albion's 0-0 draw away to Southampton.

Davidson, who signed for West Brom after moving from Heracles earlier this month, replaced the injured Sebastian Pocognoli on the hour-mark.

He played a major part in keeping the side's first clean sheet of the season and certainly impressed manager Alan Irvine. 

The 23-year-old's father, Alan Davidson, played for Nottingham Forrest in the 1980's which now makes them the first Aussie father-son duo to play in the English top-tier.

Australian football statistician Andrew Howe said Davidson is the 49th Socceroo to play in the English top-tier, the first being Joe Martson in 1951.

West Brom's next assignment comes in the Capitol One Cup against Oxford United before a trip to Swansea for match-day three of the Premier League next weekend.
