Albion climb to eighth
TONY Pulis watched his side keep a sixth Barclays Premier League clean sheet of the season - but it was his forward players who earned special praise.
The Baggies won 1-0 at Norwich, thanks to Salomon Rondon's second-half goal.
His performance, along with those of Stephane Sessegnon and James McClean particularly caught the head coach's eye.
On Albion's ATTACKING PLAY, Pulis said:
The players do a lot of work on the training ground and work hard on certain aspects.
We talk about clean sheets more because of the record I've got but we did well going forward and got our rewards. I'm a manager who likes to play wide players - Sessegnon and McClean did that, both did well. McClean was outstanding and is getting better and better now.. The quality of our play going forward was good.
On RONDON, he added:
I've said it before. Next month we'll be into our fourth month of the season yet we'll have had them away for internationals for two months.
Salomon spends 22 hours flying to Venezuela, he's a national hero over there and I just don't think he's had the time to rest and pick up his performances.
You only have to watch him in training how good he is. He will score goals.
On the overall display, Pulis continued:
First quarter of an hour Norwich did well. Their support was sucking the ball down their end.
But as the game wore on we got a grip of it and we're disappointed not to be ahead at half-time. Dawson and Salomon missed chances, we should have had a penalty from a free-kick and we played well in the second half.
