Skipper pleased to have winning feeling again

Jonny Evans admits he'd forgot what it felt like to win a game in the Premier League. 

Evans has skippered Albion to the club's worst ever winless streak after going 21 games without a win. 

But the former Manchester United player headed Albion's first against Brighton and marshalled the Baggies' backline superbly as they recorded a much-needed 2-0 victory. 

“A lot of our performances recently have been like that but the difference today was that we got the ball in the net,” said the Northern Ireland international. 

“The two-goal lead is something we haven’t had a lot of and it gives you something to hold on to.

“I thought we defended really well in the second-half.

“It’s only three points to add to our tally but it’s something, that feeling of winning, when you haven’t had that for a long time, sometimes you forget what that’s like. 

“The atmosphere in the changing rooms was really positive and hopefully we can taste more of that."
