Albion ended 2013 in style – with another away win.

Inigo Calderon scored the only goal as they enjoyed a battling 1-0 success at Blackpool today.

The right-back made ground to the edge of the box and shot home left-footed after feeding off a lay-off from Leo Ulloa, who had earlier shot against the post.

Albion held on for the win pretty comfortably, with Adam Chicksen enjoying an accomplished debut after replacing the injured Stephen Ward just before the break.

Kazenga LuaLua came off the bench and almost eased any nerves near the end when his low shot was touched on to the post by Matt Gilks.

Tomasz Kuszczak was tested once but pushed away Chris Basham's header in the latter stages.

A win and a loss so much better than two draws. I think we are ahead of last season on points now - probably for the first time this season. Our away form is great. We just need to sort out the Amex.

I hope Ward is fit for Wednesday as he has been so solid in that position. As it was a head injury, I assume he might be OK? Calderon may not have all Bruno's tricks, but I don't think he is any worse as a defender, and he always gets among the goals. Having said that Bruno had two of his best games before the Charlton match.

I can imagine Kaz starting against Bournemouth as Buckers has to be careful with his delicate hamstrings - but we now have a squad that's starting to look much stronger. Bournemouth won't be easy as we have a pretty poor record against Eddie Howe's teams - but im feeling confident.

Excellent result, following the disappointment at Charlton.
Concern about Will's hamstring. Adam Chicksen gave a good account of himself. Hope Steve Ward is O.K.
We missed Spanish Dave's deliveries from our free kicks and corners in the first half.
Caldi scores again,just love that guy, he keeps winning me money!
