Poyet: Goal was a fitting finale
Gus Poyet was delighted to send fans away with a late goal as Albion concluded their first season at The Amex today.
Ashley Barnes side-footed home on 84 minutes to earn a well deserved 1-1 draw with Birmingham City.
Players and management then went on a lap of thanks and appreciation for their fans.
Poyet said: “The feelings after a draw are different if you score first and the other team scores in the last minute.
“I think people felt like we won the game. We didn’t but that was the feeling.
“It was great for for the lap afterwards to say thank you for what you have done to us this season and for the connection we are making with the fans.
“It was very important to finish the season at The Amex scoring a goal and creating that atmosphere at the end.”
Albion played the more attractive football but had to come from behind after Nathan Redmond produced a super left foot finish for Birmingham.
Poyet added: “I was not surprised by Birmingham. I knew how difficult they would be to beat.
“What made me happy was we competed well. If you talk about quality actions in the game, most of them were by our players.
“That just shows it is worth buying a ticket to watch us play."
Birmingham chief Chris Hughton, whose side are heading for the play-offs, said: "Once we took the lead I felt we would hold on to it. It was a disappointed changing room at the end."
