Danny Welbeck wheels away after firing home the equaliser against Sheffield United.

Solly March is confident that Danny Welbeck will continue to find the back of the net for Albion.

The striker scored his second goal since joining the club in October in Sunday's 1-1 draw against Sheffield United and first at the Amex.

“Danny has scored two already. If he plays more 90 minutes and gets games under his belt he will score plenty for Albion this season. He's a proven striker and a good option for us,” said March.

Although Albion were happy to get a point thanks to Welbeck's late volley against the Blades, March admitted the players were frustrated that they didn't win.

Solly March believes Danny Welbeck can be a real threat for Albion throughout this season.

“The way Sheffield United set up on the edge of the box it was hard to break them down. In the first half we got behind them a bit more, but they were a bit more open and they were trying to score when they had 11 men.

“I wouldn't say it's harder playing against ten men, but sometimes it can be harder to score.”

“There's relief and frustration in the dressing room. We were pushing so hard that they countered on us and scored against the run of play which is sometimes the risk you take when you're pushing. They were hard to break down, so we're frustrated in the end.

“We brought on attacking players to try and win the game. Looking back I think if we play the game again, it might've gone for us. It can happen like that.

“There was chances coming and going. It's not the worst result, but we should have taken three points.

“If we lost that we would have gone into our shells and maybe heads would have dropped. We showed character to get the point in the end and it's something we can build on going into West Ham next week.”
