Pulis pleased with Sess display

17 October 2015

Head coach happy to claim home victory

MORE consistency is the key for Stephane Sessegnon - after Tony Pulis lauded his performance in the hard-fought 1-0 victory over Sunderland.

The Baggies boss recalled the Benin international for his first Barclays Premier League start of the campaign.

He was arguably Albion's best player.

On Sessegnon, Pulis said:
"I fancied him because he was playing against his old club. 
"I had that in the back of my mind and he came in and did brilliantly. We need that consistency from him now."

About the actual result, which came courtesy of Saido Berahino's second-half goal, Pulis added:
"Our first home win, and we needed it 
"It was hard fought, a tough game. The main thing for us was to get the result, especially after the kick in the stomach we had in our last home game against Everton. We needed this for confidence.
"It's been a messy start in lots of respects. We've had several of our players wanting to get to the Euros and that has obviously been a big thing for them. Without question that takes a bit away from it.
"It's nice to get those players back...only for us to lose them again for another week in November."

On Berahino's goal, Pulis said:
"I've not seen the goal. Saido said he run across the goalkeeper, not into him. I don't know. But there is one person who thought it was a goal - that's the referee. And that's all that matters."
