Jonny Evans: Baggies can build on Spurs draw


Share this story

West Brom defender Jonny Evans is hopeful his side’s 1-1 away draw with Tottenham on Saturday can help them get their season back on track.

Albion have not won a Premier League match since August, a run of form that saw boss Tony Pulis recently lose his job, but they did produce a spirited display under the stewardship of interim manager Gary Megson, as they took a share of the spoils away from Wembley Stadium.

Northern Ireland international Evans was certainly pleased with the morale-boosting point and he believes his side can now look to build on their impressive display, with home matches to come against Newcastle and Crystal Palace over the coming days.

“It’s a big week and there’s a quick turnaround now ahead of the Newcastle game, but I think that will suit us,” Evans said.

“The players will take confidence going into these two home games.

“We will look forward to them and hopefully we will be able to get two positive results.”

First up for the Baggies is the visit of Newcastle on Tuesday and they will fancy their chances of securing a much-needed win as the Magpies were beaten 3-0 by Watford on Saturday.

Albion, who may have a new manager in place ahead of Tuesday’s match, are priced at 2.38 to secure all three points, while Newcastle are available at 3.20 and the draw is on offer at 3.25.
