'It was some feeling' - J-Rod

19 February 2019

Jay Rodriguez feels Jake Livermore's stoppage time winner against Queens Park Rangers added another memorable moment to a season of growing excitement.

Albion's top scorer was for once left admiring his teammates' goals as Jefferson Montero struck with his first kick of the game, Jacob Murphy added a wonder second before captain Livermore brought a dramatic night to a thrilling conclusion with a brilliant stoppage time winner.

It sent 1,500 Baggies fans delirious as they saluted a vital victory, Albion's eighth win in nine away games.

"It was some feeling," said Rodriguez.

"That's what you work hard for. Those feelings in game and that moment, everyone is buzzing.

"It's a weird one because now we've got to go for recovery and get ready for the game Saturday. That's where the focus is now.

"The lads dug in well, every person in the squad, the staff, everyone sticks together here and that is the outcome that we want.

"That's what football is about.

"Those hard days and those tough training sessions that you work on. Things didn't go right for us sometimes in the game but to have that belief it means more to us. We have just got to carry on now and really step it up.

"It's not good for the heart, but that feeling. You're just elated and so happy that you have got the three points. QPR made it really difficult for us tonight. It's an absolute buzz.

"We appreciate how much they travel and support us and you could hear them. We were shooting towards them in the second-half and they really dragged us in.

"Now to send them back home with the three points buzzing makes us all feel proud and that is what it is about. I hope we can do that on Saturday now, that's where the focus is now."
