Brunt: Old school rules paying off

Midfielder has his say on recent form

OLD school rules are paying off for in-form Albion according to fit-again midfielder Chris Brunt.

Head coach Tony Pulis has named an unchanged XI for the last four Premier League matches in which the Baggies have picked up three wins and one draw.

Scottish duo James Morrison and Matt Phillips came back into the team for the clash with Leicester at the King Power Stadium in the absence of the injured Nacer Chadli and the suspended James McClean, who were both in top form.

Impressive performances and results have done enough to persuade the Baggies boss to stick with the current personnel though, and Brunt believes that method is working.

He said: “We have a good group of lads who work very hard for their results here at the club.

“Obviously there are people who have been in the team and playing really well earlier in the season that aren’t getting in the eleven at the minute.

“They will be desperate to get back in which is a good thing for us.

“The gaffer is old school and I don’t think he likes to change things when the team is winning and that is understandable.

“That method is paying off at the moment and if we can keep the run of results going like in recent weeks we will all be really pleased.

“I’m sure it will be swings and roundabouts for the rest of the campaign though with injuries and suspensions.”
