Steve Cotterill must be one of the happiest managers around at the moment with five wins in six games, 12 goals and only three conceded. The latest of course being last night's defeat of the Baggies 3-2 at the Turf (and it was on the telly!)
He will hopefully now achieve his target of a minumum 60 points this season to equal the previous best post-Digital season in 2004/5.
A delighted gaffer had this to say about this comeback from 2-0 down to win 3-2:
'We showed an awful lot of character coming back. I think we had done well against the 11 men after eight minutes, but I don't know what it is about those first eight minutes.
'We have to start being better against teams like West Brom. We didn't do anything that we talked about, or watched on the video and we should never have given them the respect we did.
'I was really disappointed with that, but afterwards we deserve an enormous lot of credit for getting back into the game, even with them having 10 men.
'We had to be calculated in what we did and it's an unbelievable win really.'
Speaking about some of our fortune in the match for a change considering the bad luck we have had,Steve went on to say:
'I thought Andy was offside from where I was stood, without seeing it on a camera.
'But I thought Michael Duff epitomised what I like my teams to do and to be fair there was no room for error in him winning that ball, otherwise it could have been 3-0.
'At half time we said we wanted to keep the tempo high. We were going to play 2-4-4, to make sure we pushed right up and had the ball out of the back.
'If that didn't come off after 20 minutes we were going to play 3-4-3. They knew who was going to come off and exactly how we were going to play and the 2-4-4 worked.'
'The points total is better than last year and that's the first hurdle. But we need another three points to make sure we are above my first year in a league that is better two years on.
'We want to finish on a good note now and that is in the forefront of my mind.'
