Levi Colwill made an impressive return after two months out.

Levi Colwill relished his return from injury and the Amex atmosphere after helping Albion to a 1-0 win over Crystal Palace.

The 19-year-old returned after two months out and helped Albion to a fifth win out of six at the Amex.

“I loved the atmosphere, the fans were amazing and the stadium was booming at the end,” he said. “Out there it felt like they were a 12th man."

Solly March’s first-half goal proved decisive while Albion kept a crucial clean sheet, with Colwill producing a superb tackle deep into stoppage time to stop Wilfried Zaha from getting his shot away as Palace pushed for an equaliser.

“It was a tough last few minutes with all the stoppage time but the rewards are so great at the end of it,” added Colwill. “Everyone works hard as a defensive unit to get a clean sheet so it was massive for us, and a really big three points.

“We work hard so when we get the result it means so much to us, it’s an achievement. It’s the best feeling in the world.

“We have to keep pushing, and make sure we get three points in as many games as we can. We can do anything if we stick together as long look ahead no more than the next game which for us is Grimsby on Sunday, another big one for us.”
