Boss happy with Albion improvement

Last updated : 22 August 2021 By Wba-mad Editor

Valerian Ismael says he's pleased with the way his Albion side are already progressing this season. 

The former Barnsley boss saw his side record their third victory in a week with a 2-1 win over unbeaten Blackburn. 

Albion made it hard for themselves gifting Rovers a way back into the game but Ismael was delighted to see his side hang on for their first victory on the road this term. 

"In the Championship you never know, when you dominate, when you have so many chances if it is still a close result anything can happen. A long ball in the box or the referee lets play on when you expected a free-kick," he told the club's official website. 

"You never know. Everything can happen, so it was important to see how strong we were. We had a lot of the situation under control. 

"We conceded a goal, but it was our fault so it is a good sign for us because we are really strong. We play like we want with the principle. We want to stay on the front foot all the time. Today it was still early in the season but it was already an improvement from the game against Luton. 

"Against Luton we were more scared to lose and after conceding the goal today we wanted to win the game and we wanted to continue to score goals. This is a game changer in the mindset from the players."
