Barnes praises Baggies approach

HARVEY Barnes pointed to Albion's new-found brand of attacking football after their 5-2 win in the inaugural Regis Shield.

Our Leicester loanee netted twice in the first eight minutes at The Hawthorns against Coventry City, turning provider for Hal Robson-Kanu before half-time, as the Baggies eased past the Sky Blues in a performance of which Cyrille would have been proud.

And though the serious business doesn't start until next Saturday, Harvey was pleased Darren Moore's men set the tone for next weekend's opener against Bolton Wanderers.

"It was nice to get off to a good start," he nodded.

"I think in the first half especially we looked really dangerous, created some great chances and got the goals we deserved.

"For me personally it was a great start to get the two goals and the assist for Hal. But it was about getting my fitness in, too. I've not had many games.

"All the boys out there want to prove themselves to the gaffer and put themselves in his mind.

"Being the last pre-seaosn game it was important to get the win. We've shown some great attacking football.
