With the Norwich City victory yesterday meaning narrow back to back wins for West Bromwich Albion for the first time this year with the Sunderland game included summer signing and former Manchester United’s centre half Johnny Evans has said that the players are gaining confidence all the time – especially after the run of three straight defeats – and he now feels we’ve given ourselves a foundation we can build on for the rest of the season.

In quotes carried by Sky Sports following his post game press interviews, the Northern Ireland international explained that with six clean sheets but only eight goals to our name, clearly there are things we can improve on when it comes to our attacking play – and yesterday he felt the goal coming when it did settled us down and you could see the confidence grow in the side.

‘It has been great to get, especially the two clean sheets and the two 1-0 wins. Sometimes the games aren’t always pretty but we have managed to grind them out and we want to build our confidence on the back of that. We started slow in the first 15 minutes but created chances and thought we were unlucky not to go in 1-0 up at half-time. They got in behind us and had a few chances but we managed to sort that out between ourselves on the pitch.’

With Salomon Rondon getting his second strike for us since his arrival over the summer as our record signing, Evans went on to say that starting the second period that brightly certainly helped us on the day, and having got our noses in front – whilst it was unfortunate we couldn’t add to the scoreline – the players remained confident of seeing the game out because of how we know we can keep clean sheets.

‘The goal settled us. They put us under pressure for the final 20 minutes or so but we ground out the result and it was another great away victory. They were quite strong and got the ball out wide. They used that threat but I thought our full-backs defended really well in one-on-one situations.’
