Jayson Molumby | Second half full of effort and commitment

Jayson Molumby is interviewed after Albion's draw at Bristol City

Jayson Molumby says Albion can take positives from their second-half efforts following a goalless draw at Bristol City on Saturday afternoon.

The Baggies produced a much-improved performance after the break and finished the stronger of the two sides at Ashton Gate.

Although a winning goal eluded Carlos Corberán’s team in the West Country, Molumby is confident his team-mates can build on the application shown during the second 45, as well as their first league clean sheet, heading into matches against Watford and Millwall next week.


He said: “We were disappointed with our display in the first half.

“We didn’t really manage to get a grip of the game but then we came in and had a bit of a go at ourselves because we weren’t happy with our performance.

“We changed a few things and I thought we were the dominant team in the second half.

“I think we played a bit more direct at times and they were pressing quite high, so the space was in behind them.

“We tried to exploit that a bit more by getting the ball up the pitch, get bodies around it and I think it worked well but I’m just disappointed that we didn’t manage to get the three points.

“But the fans could see effort and commitment in that second half. We worked hard for each other and on another day we get three points, but I think a draw was a fair result.

"We want to get the ball to the attacking boys as much as we can.

“The introduction of Grady, Josh Maja, Sarmiento, Mowatt, Conor gave us freshness and all the boys who came on did really well. We’re going to need everyone this season to play their part.

“That’s massive for us (the clean sheet). To get our first one in the league today was important and certainly a positive to take.

“We need to kick on now and away games in the Championship are extremely tough but I’m just happy with the second-half and the application from all the lads.”
