Joel Veltman has appealed to Albion fans after throwing his shirt into the away end at Nottingham Forest.

But he was thrilled to help put his side back on winning track.

The Dutch defender was last to leave the scene after players celebrated their 3-2 success in front of the travelling supporters.

He said: “I was just so happy I threw my shirt to thank the fans - but my GPS was still in there.

“I went back to ask for it, they thought probably for my shirt.

“But I just wanted my GPS, not my shirt.

“I will put it on my Instagram. I will give you another shirt if you give my GPS back!”

Veltman thought Albion let the hosts back into the contest.

He said: “I think after their (first) goal we did well, created chances.

“They were counter-attacking, At half-time, I had the feeling we had to win here 4-1, 5-1 – maybe 5-2.

“We did not. When you are getting sloppy, they feel something.

“When the crowd is getting behind them, this place is so difficult to play.

“We made it a bit difficult for ourselves but the fighting spirit is there.

“I think this year is more of a test than last year.

“We ended up sixth, we had a European place, in Europe we are doing well.

“We have chance in Europe to go through but we need to be realistic as well.

“With the amount of games we have got, the injuries we have, I think we are in a good place.”
