‘Our quality shone through’ - Shan

19 April 2019

Jimmy Shan says Albion’s “quality shone through” in the closing moments of Friday’s 3-2 victory over Hull City at The Hawthorns.

Having led 1-0 at half-time the Baggies gave themselves a mountain to climb when a Todd Kane brace put the visitors in front.  

But Dwight Gayle scored twice to earn Shan’s men a fourth successive win on home turf.

“I’m pleased we’ve gone four from four at home, which is a big ask and task,” admitted the Club’s caretaker Head Coach. “We started the first 15 minutes of the second half very flat but testament to the players again.

“They showed character and resilience and again our quality shone through, I think, in the final 30 minutes of the second half.

“I’d like us to have more of a clean sheet mentality, because the two goals were soft.”

He added: “We’ve obviously got one eye on the Play-Offs and the schedule so we have to forward plan. 

“But I’ve said from the get-go that we need a one-game mentality and we’ll do that again on Monday at Reading.

“It’s just maybe a case of making sure that we get as many players peaking as possible, should we enter that Play-Off stage. 

“Momentum and confidence is fantastic. We’re well aware of what our home form was like before the last four home games and we’re well aware of the confidence winning can bring.”
