Brunty pleased with Owls point

Former Sheffield Wednesday man Chris Brunt admits he's unsure who got the final touch as Albion scrambled a last minute equaliser against the Owls. 

The Baggies were behind in the fifth minute but fought back to earn a deserved point - despite Jay Rodriguez's second half red card. 

The point maintains Albion's unbeaten run and moves the Baggies closer to second placed Norwich City. 

I thought it was my goal,” Brunt claimed.

“I saw it coming and swung my foot between the lads legs so I’m sure he’d rather have it given to me than have it go down as an own goal. 

“Being totally honest I’m not entirely sure what happened but know I kicked something in that direction so I’ll take it. I think I got as much on it as he did. 

“I haven’t scored for a while so if it’s taken off me I’ll be disappointed. 

“I think it’s a good point with ten men. I thought we played really well with ten men, we kicked on. 

“If we’d had 11 vs. 11 I think we might have go on to get us all three points. As the game wore on we were definitely the stronger side.”
