Lewis Dunk said he was proud of the way Albion produced a strong second-half fightback to draw 1-1 against Watford at the Amex.

Trailing to Abdoulaye Doucoure’s goal, they rallied after the break and drew level through Adrian Mariappa’s own goal.

The skipper said, “We’re disappointed with the first half. I don’t think there was much in it, but we conceded on the break again. But we showed good fight in the second half and I was proud of the team's reaction.

“We have been behind in our last two games and fought back in both so that’s a positive for us. We have got to keep going and working hard.”

Dunk admitted that Albion need to turn pressure and possession into more goals but insists keeping goals out at the other end is just as important.

“We need to get better in the final third and creating more chances for the strikers,” he added.

"But if we keep a clean sheet we’ve got a winning chance. If we keep conceding goals we will keep struggling and we will keep having to battle.”

Albion now go into their winter break and the players will recharge their batteries ahead of their return to Premier League action at Sheffield United on Saturday 22nd February. 

Dunk said, “We can take the positives from today into the break and there were some. We will work on a few things [during the break], get together and then prepare for the final push of the season.”
