Carlos Corberán | Our goals came from the heart

Carlos Corberán is interviewed after Albion's win at Stoke

Carlos Corberán believes Albion’s comeback victory over Stoke City on Saturday wouldn’t have been possible without “character, desire and mentality”.

Jayson Molumby bagged his first ever brace for the club in the second half of the encounter at the bet365 Stadium, goals which helped the Baggies claim a huge three points in the Sky Bet Championship.

The Potters had lead 1-0 at the break courtesy of Jacob Brown’s close-range header, but Corberán says he saw a “competitive team” fighting for the cause in the Staffordshire, with his side now just two points off the top six.

Carlos said: “I think without the character the players put on the pitch today, it would’ve been impossible to achieve what we did. 

“When we start losing in games, it always makes it more difficult to get a positive result. But the spirit, braveness and determination the players showed on the pitch was very important and it’s a great three points.

“Today, the goals we scored were from the heart of the players. We did not score with the foot, we scored with the strength, the desire and the mentality. These are values which are very important to have. 

“The target that we have right now is to be a very competitive team every time we go onto the pitch. I was really pleased to see that the team was competitive and the work that they were doing today, there was a reward for that.

“The support our fans were giving to us made us feel like we were playing at home. There were more than 2,500 people here today supporting the team. 

“The togetherness is what makes us strong.”
