Sami Hyypia has praised Lewis Dunk’s early season form.

And he reckons the defender’s two goals to save a point at the Amex today were a nice bonus.

Dunk headed home twice to secure a 2-2 draw at home to Charlton.

Both goals came from corners, the second – in added time – after Kazenga LuaLua had chipped the ball back into the goalmouth.

Albion boss Hyypia said: “It’s great we can score from set-pieces.

“They were both good headers. I’m happy for Dunky.

“He has played very well recently and getting on the scoresheet is a bonus.

“But we don’t put big guys in the box for nothing at corners!”

Hyypia wants Albion to keep playing their football, even though he felt they worked their way into problems when Charlton scored their second goal.

He added: “We want to play football and sometimes we can lose the ball and the opposition scores.

“That is our way of playing and I don’t want to change that.

“That was in a phase we were good in the game and it was a bad goal to concede at the time.

“But the players kept going and in the end we got the reward.”

It's the first time I have been content at being in a losing position and still feel in my heart of hearts at how much we have progressed !!
Ball flowing forward quicker... We appear to have signed some great attacking options.. The Spanish boy today was different class I thought....
The draw was a bonus and Dunk scoring twice was a dream !!!!
The silence from Charlton was fantastic at the end,..
This season won't be dull !!!!!

Dunky was absolute hero today for me personally - I had a bet on his goal minutes on the spreads at 2.....I celebrate one for the goal and again when I realised who it was!
