Striker reflects on Hammers draw
SALOMON Rondon hailed an “important point” for Albion at West Ham on Sunday afternoon, however the forward admitted they had the chances to take all three.
A Winston Reid own goal early in the second-half secured Tony Pulis’ side a creditable 1-1 draw in their final league visit to the Boleyn Ground.
The Baggies could have returned home victorious, but they failed to take advantage of some fantastic opportunities following their equaliser and had to settle for a share of the spoils.
“We could have won the game in the second-half but the draw is still a good result for us,” said Rondon.
“I had a couple of chances and I think the ‘keeper made a very good save from my header.
“I was really disappointed not to score.
“West Ham were a very good side and they worried us.
“We didn’t do very well in the first-half but we changed it in the second-half.
“Rickie Lambert entered the pitch and the game was different.
“I would have preferred to leave the stadium with three points but the game was very difficult.
“The point is very important for us and we now look ahead to Tottenham.”
