Alex Palmer | We’ll take Leeds point and move on

Alex Palmer chats to WBA TV after Albion's game against Leeds

Alex Palmer said his Albion teammates were frustrated to draw 1-1 at Leeds on Friday night – but that they would “take the point and move on”.

The Baggies goalkeeper made a couple of outstanding saves in Yorkshire – most notably a second-half stop to deny Dan James’ curling effort.

And Palmer said he was pleased with his impact on the game in a post-match chat with WBA TV.


“It’s that one moment you train for,” said Palmer. “To save it, I was delighted to make my mark.

“I’ve not scored so I don’t know if the feeling is the same, but I’d imagine so. We work for those moments and I’m just happy to help the team out.

“We’re obviously gutted to miss out on the three points, but I think we dug in, defended well and put our bodies on the line.

“With the chances we had in the second half – we got in good positions and we could have had another moment. But we’ll take the point.

“I think defensively we’re pretty solid. Last weekend it was two set pieces we conceded from, but apart from that we’re defensively solid.

“It’s a new shape at the back. We’re getting to know each other and getting comfortable.

“We’ve come here and put in a performance and, like I said, ultimately we’re disappointed not to take home the win.

“We've got two home matches coming up, and at home we’re strong. We’ve just got to try and pick up as many points as we can, be solid and take our chances.

“With our support, any team that comes to The Hawthorns is in for a tough game.”
