Head coach Oscar Garcia remained pretty reserved following our one all draw with Reading yesterday.
Albion were leading when the referee took the decision to send Gordon Greer off for a second bookable offence, and obviously that decision had a huge bearing on how the remainder of the game played out.
Fans will no doubt make their own minds up following replays, Reading manager Nigel Adkins has already gone on record as saying it was a clear second booking, but speaking to the Official Site following the game, obviously Garcia had other thoughts.
'It's not important what I thought of the sending off - it is what the referee though that is important. Any questions on the sending off are for the referee and not for me, but until then we had the game under control. The referee sent him off and that changed the game completely.'
Oscar went on to say that at one nil up and prior to the red card we were looking towards having a good second half and hopefully creating enough chances to have made the victory more comprehensive, but one thing he was pleased with following Greer's dismissal was the 'great character' of the team to dig in and be strong at the back as well as still trying to work their keeper at the other end, saying he was proud of the overall performances of the lads.
Garcia also went on to credit the efforts of the fans over the course of 90 minutes, saying they really did help the players, especially in the second period when we had fewer numbers but were still trying to look for the winner saying the atmosphere was 'outstanding' and the fans really did act like an 11th man for us.
