ALAN Pardew heaped praise on Baggies supporters after his side’s 2-0 win over Brighton & Hove Albion.
Pardew's team earned an important three points thanks to goals either side of half time from Jonny Evans and Craig Dawson in a bouncing atmosphere at The Hawthorns.
“The stadium was so brilliant for us, it really was. I’ve talked about it and pleaded for it, but my goodness they gave it to me in bucket loads and it helped us,” said Pardew.
“That’s how we’ve got to play and that’s the confidence I expect. We passed it well at times, we created chance after chance and we could have had three or four.
“Obviously a new manager comes in and the set-plays start falling away, so I changed them and we worked hard on them with myself and big Darren Moore - and we got our reward.
“We’ve got good, aggressive players at set-plays and that’s going to be massively important going forward.
“The promise we’ve shown was delivered, and that was great.
“All in all it’s been a great day for West Brom and I’m delighted for the players and the fans."
