Orlandi happy to play his part in Albion win
Andrea Orlandi is celebrating his first start for Albion and a key role in their victory.
The deadline day signing from Swansea started in place of Ashley Barnes at Watford last night.
He spent most of the match in unfamiliar territory on the right side of midfield, coping with Watford’s adventurous left-back Daniel Pudil.
But the Spaniard had a crucial say by providing the pass from which Pudil brought down Craig Mackail-Smith for the decisive penalty.
Orlandi said: “It wasn’t my best game but I worked hard for the team in what is not my best position. I am delighted to play my first game in the first eleven and I’m really happy to be part of the team.
“It was a really good win. Watford played really well. They are a strong team but we kept solid and that is the most important thing, especially when you can’t play really well.
“The manager said at half-time and it was a game where we would have to work hard, keep our shape and if we had the chance take it. That’s what we did with the penalty. Craig is in amazing form.”
