Anthony Knockaert is eyeing a big finish to the season after returning from suspension.

The Albion winger played the second half at Crystal Palace yesterday following his three-game ban.

Knockaert was sent off at Everton last month and went five weeks without playing first team football.

But boss Chris Hughton praised his efforts in training during that period and he was lively after replacing Jurgen Locadia at the break at Selhurst Park.

Knockaert said: “It is never easy to come on in a game, especially after a few weeks out.

“I trained really hard and I kept professional to try to be fitter when I came back.

“I tried my best and I will be more and more ready for the next few games now.”

Knockaert was sent on as Albion looked to come back from 3-2 down.

He said: “It was always going to be tough to come back and get a point but we should have started the game better.

“It wasn’t to be but we need to move on and now it is another fight on Tuesday and we will try to get the three points.

“I don’t think now at this stage of the season we care about who we play.”
