Tactical changes do the trick for Pulis

Last updated : 02 January 2017 By Wba-mad Editor

A first half switch in tactics by Albion boss Tony Pulis helped the Baggies on their way to a 3-1 victory over struggling Hull City. 

Albion started slowly and were behind in the 21st minute when Robert Snodgrass swept home from 12 yards. 

It wasn't until Jonny Evans limped off with a calf injury that Albion started to get back into the game when Pulis adopted an unfamiliar three man defence. 

The Baggies then turned things around after the break with goals from Chris Brunt, Gareth McAuley and James Morrison. 

"We changed things around 30 minutes into the first half," he said.

"Their shape was more potent than ours. As soon as we did that we got into the game more. After that they didn't create a lot and it's another great three points for us.

"We are delighted to be on 29 points, it's been a good year for us. Now we need to bring a couple in to improve the group and give everyone a lift again."
