Swansea Has To Be Our Turning Point - Mel

Swansea Has To Be Our Turning Point - Mel

Head coach Pepe Mel has said that Albion must ensure that the victory over Swansea last weekend is now our turning point this season and that we continue to strive forward and build on those all important three points in our coming games.

Speaking to wba.co.uk Mel knows the victory was a great statement of how together the team are because we were missing some key players in the shape of Chris Brunt, Morgan Amalfitano, Claudio Yacob and Billy Jones and of course as we head towards the next match we are also now without Jonas Olsson who is beginning a two match ban for picking up ten yellow cards this campaign.

'I hope the win can be the turning point because confidence is the most important thing. For the players the most important thing is to win, now in the changing room they are happy. For the players it was important because the players are together all week with me.'

Mel goes on to say that he was delighted for the players because they have placed a lot of trust in him as a new man at the club, and they have been very encouraging of him with their efforts and endeavours on the pitch so he was delighted to see that finally come to fruition with a good win, especially as we had to come from behind in the game to get all three points.

Goalkeeper Ben Foster also heaped praise on his colleagues following their showing against Swansea, equally talking up the spirit within the camp.

'It was a really big win, it's a tough place to go whoever you are. To come away with three points, given our recent form, is a very nice feeling. We showed great spirit to get the win.'
