Jakub Moder went close to opening the scoring, but Jack Butland denied the midfielder.

Jakub Moder is delighted to have supporters singing his name for the first time.

The 22-year-old didn’t have a song when he played in Poland, so is enjoying being serenaded by the Albion faithful.

“I heard the chant during the Crystal Palace game on Friday, it’s special for me. They don’t tend to sing about individual players in Poland, they sing more about the team and the club.

“It’s nice to hear, it’s good for me to feel like the supporters think I am important to the team.

“We had a good game against Palace, but we’re disappointed with the result. They only had one chance and they scored it. If you can’t win, don’t lose.”

The midfielder had a couple of decent opportunities against Palace to get his first Premier League goal.

“My first goal is getting closer, but I’m still waiting! I hit the post and the goalkeeper pulled off a really good save. Hopefully it will come soon.

“I am the type of player who gets the opportunities, I get into the right places. I just need the first and then I think I will get a few. I know if I keep getting into the right position then the goal will come. But I am not worried, although I haven’t scored I believe I am still putting in good performances.”

Moder says Albion’s focus is now on Chelsea’s visit to the Amex tomorrow.

“It’s a very difficult game, but we showed that we can play well against bigger teams like when we drew at Stamford Bridge a few weeks ago,” added Moder. “We can cause other teams big problems, we need to show that attitude like the last time against Chelsea.”
