The post-match reaction from Albion's crucial win last night.
CHRIS HUGHTON feels his side have found their clinical edge at just the right time, after scoring nine goals against Fulham and QPR in the last two games.
He said, “It is just amazing how things can change, because for long periods throughout the season we have not looked like a team that can score a lot of goals.”
“Although we have been winning, we hadn’t won many games by more than a goal, so the transformation has been brilliant. We have also spread the goals around the team, which is really encouraging.
“Thankfully it has come for us at a good time and we have now put ourselves in the best-possible position.
“We are in a good rhythm at the moment and we are scoring goals, but equally every game is tough. Looking back at our recent away games, I thought we were very good at Birmingham but we need a late goal to win at Forest.”
“So it will be a tight finish to the season, we need to prepare ourselves as we have been and make sure we are at our very best for the remaining games of the season.”

JIMMY FLOYD HASSELBAINK says his side must take many lessons from a heavy 4-0 defeat to Brighton & Hove Albion last night.
The two teams seemed evenly matched for much of the first half, but Anthony Knockaert’s free-kick towards the end of the half turned the game on its head.
He told qpr.co.uk, “We made some mistakes as a team and our intensity dropped. When you do that against a dangerous side like Brighton, they will punish you and that is what they did.”
“We can’t forget about this defeat. We have to learn, we have to get better and we have to improve.”
“The goal just before half time came at a crucial point in the game. Once Brighton scored, they were able to play with much more freedom. It was a big weight off their shoulders.”
“However, we still could have done better with some of the goals, but Brighton played really well, and sometimes you have to say that.”
