Captain eager to regain form

Chris Brunt admits he needs to perform better in an Albion shirt.

Albion’s captain was substituted to ironic cheers against Fulham after a below-par performance on New Year’s Day.

Brunt admits the reception he received surprised him after spending six years at the club. But the Northern Ireland international is determined to prove his doubters wrong by finding top form again.  

“It’s part and parcel of football,” said Albion’s captain.

“It’s nice to be applauded for what you’re doing but when you’re playing in front of 25,000-30,000 every week it’s not an easy place to hide.

"Against Fulham I wasn’t good. It’s disappointing to hear the reaction but that’s life. You have to take it on the chin and move on.

“I’ve been here for six years now and I’ve had one pretty bad moment, so I’m quite happy with that record.

“It’s down to me to start playing better on the pitch.

“Fulham was a bad game all round for everybody and somebody’s got to take the flak.

“It happened to be me that day but that’s the job.

“I’m lucky to have the job I have but it just happens that it’s in the public eye each week and it’s easy for people to get frustrated.”
