West Brom continued their poor run of form as they succumbed to one of the comfortable football scores of the weekend in the Championship. Valerian Ismael and his side have just managed one win in their last seven matches. Mason Benett opened the scoring in the 67th minute before Benik Afobe doubled their advantage in the 76th minute. Andy Carroll made his debut for the Baggies after moving on a free transfer.
Millwall’s Gary Rowett: “The confidence of the squad is my priority. If you don’t win games, it’s never simple. It’s about the players and having pride after the game. The last three games have been difficult. It’s about us showing character. Today, I thought we competed brilliantly. I thought we defended superbly. Our front three were an absolute handful at times. There were lots of things to be positive about today.”
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “It is, for us, very, very painful,” said Ismael, who watched disgruntled Baggies supporters throw a flare onto the pitch in the closing exchanges. If you don’t win games you are getting in trouble. If you are not able to accept that as a manager, then you are wrong for the job. I didn’t perform as I expected. I know myself, I am my biggest critic. A lot of things you can’t explain throughout the season – injuries. It’s not an excuse but you have to get the result. If you get the result, you get time, confidence, and belief.”
