DAVID Button says he has proved a point with his performances for Albion.

The No.2 keeper has conceded six goals in as many games, including Liverpool and Manchester United, and kept two clean sheets since signing from Fulham in the summer.

That has silenced doubters after Button lost his place in Fulham's Championship side.

He told the Argus: "Maybe to other people, yes (proved a point). I don't feel like there was ever anything to prove to myself because I knew what I was capable of.

"It was great of Brighton to put that trust in me. Hopefully I've showed other people what I can do."

Button gets another chance to deputise for the rested Mathew Ryan at West Brom in tomorrow night's FA Cup fourth round replay.

The 29-year-old has fought his way up to the Premier League after 14 loan spells during his time at Spurs.

He said: "When you are a teenager, early twenties, you know your game time at a big club like Spurs where the pressure is on the manager to get results is obviously going to be limited.

"It is almost starting lower and proving yourself at every level. Every loan has got to be a step up. Gradually I have managed to work my way up through the leagues and prove myself with different loans. It was all worthwhile."
