West Brom must turn draws into wins, says Matej Vydra after scoring late equaliser against Fulham
The Baggies came from behind yet again to pick up a point
Monday 24 February 2014
West Bromwich Albion striker Matej Vydra has urged his team-mates to start converting draws into wins after only taking a point against Fulham at The Hawthorns.
Vydra scored a late equaliser that saw goal-line technology brought into play, as Albion came back from 1-0 down at home for the fourth consecutive match.
The on-loan Udinese forward admits the point was a good result in hindsight, but says The Baggies must start picking up wins if they are to beat the drop: “The last three games at home we have only taken three points,” he said.
“It’d be better in a way if we lost away but won at home, but Chelsea and Liverpool were good points for us.
“Fulham are behind us, before the game we wanted three points but if you look at the way we played at times today, a point is good.”
Vydra was also pleased to see the goal-line technology system called into action, after his effort slipped through the hands of Maarten Stekelenburg to crawl over the line: “I scored and it’s helped me, I’m very happy,” he added.
“I saw the ball behind the line but the referee gave nothing for five seconds. But then I was so happy that his watch gave it.”
