Poyet: Tide is turning

Poyet: Tide is turning

Gus Poyet believes his side are getting their reward for an unwavering belief in their way of playing.

Will Buckley struck a well-taken brace to seal the points for Albion at Huddersfield yesterday, as the side look to move away from the 'nearly men' tag that has followed them in recent weeks, on the back of some dominant displays that have yielded only draws.

And Poyet has praised his players for the attitude they've shown in the face of their recent disappoint, and feels that Saturday's victory will change the outlook on Albion's perceived recent run of form.

He told seagulls.co.uk, "The win was something that we needed and it shows how one win can change the way that people talk about a football team.

"Before this game we had one win in nine games and now people will say that we are unbeaten in five games. That is what happens off the back of winning games.

"For me, the best thing about the game was the attitude, the concentration and the belief of the squad. It takes a lot for a team to come here and keep playing after all of the frustration that we have had.

"Even when we were 2-0 up it was always going to be difficult still, because they were not going to give the win to us, but we were strong and kept playing. We expected nothing less from a Simon Grayson team, but we needed to battle and we did that."
