Hegazi eyes shutouts but admits wins triumph

AHMED Hegazi says three points will always trump a clean sheet but admits shutouts are a target for the Baggies.

Albion earned a third-successive Sky Bet Championship victory at Swansea City on Wednesday after going a goal behind. 

Darren Moore’s men remain the league’s highest scorers after Hegazi and Craig Dawson headers took the goal tally to 41 for the season, with Albion climbing to fourth in the table at the Liberty Stadium. 

But the Egypt international has set his sights firmly on recording clean sheets, which he believes will make wins easier to come by.

“It was a tough game and we got the three points which are very important to us at this time of the season,” said Hegazi.

“We need to keep going and I’m delighted to get the winning goal. I’m very happy for the team. 

“We trained a lot on corners this week so we are very happy to help the team to win a tough away game. 

“For sure, we need to get clean sheets in the next few games, but the important thing for us is that we’re winning. I’m not happy with the goal we conceded but we are trying to be more solid at the back. 

“For me the three points is always more important, but a clean sheet for the goalkeeper and the defence would be great for us. It will help us get an easier win.”
