J-Rod: We gave it everything

JAY Rodriguez was proud of his Albion side after their Old Trafford triumph.

The Baggies gave it everything, according to the man himself, who netted the winner in the 72nd minute. 

“Towards the end I think you could see the work that we had put in, but the lads stuck in, gave it everything we had and we got the win,” he said.

“We had a game plan to keep tight because we know how good they are and their players.

“But we knew we had to come here and impose ourselves. I thought we did the counter attacks really well, broke things up and created some chances.

“I don’t mind where they come from, I’m really not bothered, as long as they go in and help the team that’s the main thing.”

Special praise was reserved for Craig Dawson, whose imperious display at centre-half was epitomised by his involvement in the match-winning goal.

“When you have Dawson in your team, he’s an unbelievable header of the ball because he works on it and he’s really determined,” added Jay.

“You have to gamble every time. I think I missed a chance in the first half as I didn’t gamble, but luckily the second time I did.”
