Field delighted with ‘special’ moment

Sam Field says celebrating a goal in front of Albion’s travelling supporters at Bolton Wanderers was a moment to savour.

The 858 Baggies fans who battled miserable conditions to be at the University of Bolton Stadium were rewarded for their efforts when the young midfielder sealed all three points late on.  

And Field, who netted just his second goal for Albion after replacing Chris Brunt early on, admits he’s “delighted” with his goal and the three points. 

“Brunty going down wasn’t a great start but I didn’t really have time to think about it," he said.

"I tried to slot into what was a dogged game. 

“The ball happened to fall to me and I did my best toe-poke and it went in. I’m delighted obviously but the main point is to get the three points. 

“It’s not an easy place to come, and with all the stuff that was going on in the crowd, it was a difficult evening. 

“I’ve got a way to go to catch J-Rod and Dwight up but I’m delighted to be on the pitch - to score is an added bonus. 

“I managed to score last season but that was just as special, if not a bit more. There was great support there so I’m delighted.”
