Carlos Corberan praised Albion’s never-say-die attitude after they produced a thrilling comeback from two goals down to win 3-2 at Luton Town.
The Hatters raced into a 2-0 lead inside the opening ten minutes thanks to a Carlton Morris strike from range and a powerful Elijah Adebayo header, but efforts from Daryl Dike, Jayson Molumby and finally Conor Townsend ensured the points headed back to the West Midlands.
The victory is Albion’s ninth in their last ten Sky Bet Championship matches, and one which puts them into the top six of the division for the first time this season.
And the boss says he’s incredibly proud of what he witnessed from his side at Kenilworth Road.
Carlos said: “I am very pleased for the players because they put in an unbelievable effort.
“They showed resilience in their mentality and I am very pleased to see that all of their effort in the game got us the three points.
“It means a lot that the fans can celebrate this. The support they are giving us is the best moment every player can have.
“Today shows the challenge we are having, which gives even more value to the character of the players to show the spirit they are putting into game in order to win.
“It’s not easy to do what they did today. I am so pleased for them.
“The contributions of many players all over the pitch was very high. They were very aggressive. I did not see one player that was not competing today in the level that the game was demanding.
“We did not give up at any moment. We kept on believing and the players kept on insisting on doing the things that have brought us success over the last few weeks and months.
“It was really difficult because we conceded two goals in ten minutes without really suffering in defence. At the same time, we were creating chances to score ourselves, something which we couldn’t do in the first 30 minutes.
“We continued to show our identity in our organisation and the way we like to play. We didn’t get frustrated. We kept on doing the correct things.
“The players kept believing in themselves and that was necessary to get a positive result.”
