The Sunderland goalkeeper ensured that it would be a losing debut for Sam Allardyce at the Hawthorns as Pantilimon's fumble gifted Saido Berahino a goal and West Brom the win.
Sam Allardyce could have used the momentum that a win or even a goalless draw would have provided. It wasn't to be as the goalkeeper's error led to a 1-0 loss. Billy Jones had a very good chance but Boaz Myhill made a great save and Sunderland only managed one other shot on target over the course of the entire match. Allardyce can take heart that his side only allowed a single shot on target and will consider themselves unlucky that that lone shot on target was from point black range on an empty net.
