STRIKER Neal Maupay has delivered his verdict on Albion's draw against Southampton.

The Frenchman, who scored the equalising goal late on was happy to see that the team did not give in a stayed in the game until the very end.

Maupay said, “My performance wasn’t top and we struggled in the game but we never give up, that’s one of our big strengths.

"Everyone fought to the end, even the lads who came on.

“In the first half we couldn’t match their intensity, they were winning all the 50-50 battles. But if you don’t fight in this league you’re not going to win and we were better in the second half.

“I was very happy with the finish. It’s good to score last minute but I should have scored earlier when the keeper saved."

Maupay has also suggested that Albion need to not worry about injured players, although he hopes they are back soon.
