'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Romelu Received Half Time Boost

James Morrison has said that the team got right behind Romelu Lukaku after Tim Krul denied his two first half attempts on goal.

Speaking to wba.co.uk following the unfortunate loss to Newcastle today, James Morrison said all the team got right behind our on loan striker and he believes that confidence boost was shown as he grabbed our equiliser in the second half, before Newcastle stole it at the death.

'Romelu's had two great chances in the first half I think he expects more of himself and he should be backing himself to put those away. At half time we gave him encouragement to put the next one away and he did that. Some players might hide after failing to convert either of those chance but Romelu didn't. He showed good character and came out in the second half to score an important goal.'

Morrison also admitted that conceding in stoppage time for the second consecutive week was particularly galling after the squad fought to get back into the game.

'The dressing room was very flat and we almost wanted to shed a tear as we played really well. We were the only team that looked like winning.'

Well it was the right reaction, but sadly not the right result. We dust ourselves off and go again.
