Clinical Phillips has goals on his mind

Matt Phillips says he’s hitting his pre-season target of adding more goals to an unbeaten Albion side improving by the game.

The Scotland winger fired a brace as Albion twice came from behind to beat Huddersfield Town 4-2 at The Hawthorns - taking his total to four goals from eight games so far this season.

And Phillips believes Slaven Bilić’s side will be a force to be reckoned with once they’ve cut unforced errors from their game.

“We weren’t happy with the first half,” he admitted. “If we can eradicate the mistakes we’ve made then we’re going to be a really good side.

“First and foremost I’ve been trying to get in the box more. I’ve spoken to Danilo [Butorović] quite a few times and he’s encouraged me to get in there and get more goals. Now that’s happening.

“I love scoring goals. It’s part of my game, especially in years gone by, where I should have scored more. I’m just happy to help the team and I’m thankful we’ve got three points today.

“As I’ve said, we need to eradicate the mistakes, but I feel we’re going in the right direction.

“Grady was brilliant, he made an impact from half-time when he came on.

“That’s the strength we’ve got in the side. There’s two good players for every position. Whenever they’re called upon the boys are coming off the bench and making a big impact and helping us.”
