A Battling Display
It wasn`t the prettiest of matches today, up at The Hawthorns, but fair play to the lads for battling away when in the past we might have buckled.
The central defensive partnership of Collins and Reid were inspired whilst Cole battled away like a Trojan up front.
After the game, Big Sam commended his team remarking to the media,
'Today we were a very well organised, solid and hardworking team who have shown very good defensive qualities."
'Even though West Brom had a lot of territorial advantage we have come off with Jussi only having to have made a couple of saves."
'It is a really good result for us. Under the circumstances with our injury list, we are very pleased. When you pick up a point with seven of your first team missing that is very pleasing. The lads who went out there did us proud and picked up a precious point.'
They certainly did.
