On loan Nancy forward, Marc-Antonie FortunÃ©, has revealed Robert Koren was more than happy to give the striker his first Premiership goal on his Albion debut. The 27-year-old deflected Koren's effort past Ross Turnbull in the 54th minute with both players celebrating the strike.
However, after the game Koren admitted the goal should go down as FortunÃ©'s on his impressive first start in Albion colours after the Slovenian netted the third goal for the Baggies.
"I'm claiming the goal," said FortunÃ©.
"I really wanted to score today to show I can help West Brom and that I'm happy to be here.
"I missed some chances but I think it was my goal because I touched it in.
"I'm also happy for Roko because he's a good man and a good player.
"If they give him the goal, it's not a problem for me.
"We joked about it in the dressing room but he said it was mine - probably because he scored the third!"
After the final whistle FortunÃ© had nothing but praise for the Hawthorns' crowd who cheered the new-boy on throughout his 69 minute cameo.
"The supporters were behind us all of the game, even when we had bad moments," he added.
"They pushed us on and I love these kind of supporters.
"It gives you the belief to fight and give your best for the team."
