Alex Mowatt says he's embracing working under Carlos Corberán as Albion featured for the first time in front of supporters in pre-season.

The Baggies dominated possession and chances in their encounter with Cheltenham Town, but fell to a 1-0 defeat at the Completely-Suzuki Stadium.

Despite that result, Mowatt has highlighted his first experience of Carlos Corberán, having spent last season at Middlesbrough on-loan.

"He’s been good, he’s intense and he demands a lot from you in training and in games but that’s what you want as a player." Mowatt said.


"He gives you all the information you need to go out and perform, so you’ve got no excuse really.

"Pre-season games, you want to perform at as high a level as you can, work hard, probably do more runs than you need to do in a game but you just want to get match fit, it’s totally different to normal training to be ready for that first game of the season."

Mowatt featured for the majority of the pre-season clash with the Robins, valuable minutes ahead of the 2023/24 Sky Bet Championship campaign.

He believes that there were plenty of positives to take from the clash, including embracing the opportunity to play in front of the Albion supporters.

"That’s the most minutes we’ve played this pre-season, we’ve done two 45s and I think we did 70 minutes tonight." He said.

“It’s not the result we wanted but I think we played some good stuff.

"I think the final pass wasn’t quite there and we had a few chances. But pre-season is all about running hard, working hard and getting those minutes your legs.

“I think we played some good stuff but it was literally just that final third, that final pass – hopefully we can be better the next time we play in that respect.

“I’ve missed the supporters, even tonight travelling to Cheltenham away it’s good to see them out and I’ve missed playing in front of them."
