Carlos Corberán is interviewed after Albion's win against Preston

Carlos Corberán’s described Albion’s performance in the 4-0 win over Preston North End as a “complete” one.

The Baggies were exceptional on Saturday afternoon at Deepdale, scoring twice in each half to shatter the hosts’ unbeaten record and secure a first victory on the road this term in emphatic fashion.

Darnell Furlong, Alex Mowatt and Kyle Bartley all scored their first goals of the 2023/24 campaign, while Matty Phillips scored his second of the season in the pouring rain in Lancashire.

And the boss says he was delighted with the display and praised the “determination” on show.


He said: “The result today was the consequence of working hard to try and deliver a complete performance.

“We performed really well from the referee’s first whistle to the last.

“It was something which was necessary because in the previous games we played well in parts, but we didn’t deliver a complete performance and we only managed draws.

“Today, I am very pleased because I saw all the players completing the whole game at a very good level.

“Winning football matches in the Championship is always very tough. We knew how tough today would be, coming here and winning against a team who have won every game at Deepdale so far this season.

“In football though, statistics don’t really mean anything when a new game is being played.

“The most important thing for me is that we had the confidence and the belief to come here and believe we could get the victory. When you have the confidence it doesn’t mean that you are relaxed, it just means that you know you are able to do what you have to do.

“I saw the saw the team competing with determination today from the beginning until the end.

“Every single goal meant a lot today and every single goal was important. We needed the goals because we knew one of Preston’s strengths was that they don’t give up.

“It was importance to create chances and score goals today. We had to score goals to dominate.

“We feel pleased to achieve the three points and celebrate with our fans. It’s really important to celebrate with them.”
