West Brom man Karlan Grant discusses the crowd after beating QPR
West Brom striker Karlan Grant praised the crowd after the Baggies beat QPR on Friday night.
Speaking to Sky Sports straight after the match, Grant revealed that he understands why some of the fans have been frustrated but thanked them for their support.
The former Huddersfield Town forward scored the winner and claimed the other goal as Valerien Ismael’s side came from behind.
He said: “They have been brilliant.
“It’s difficult at times. I know that especially the three games prior to this one, it’s been difficult, and I think that if they stick by us [as], they did at the end, we will get that result like today.”
Perfect response from the Baggies.
That early goal from Andre Gray had looked to have handed Mark Warburton’s side a win, but a shocking error from Seny Dieng handed the initiative back to the Baggies.
They won it late as Grant capped off a fine move with a lovely finish into the far corner.
The West Brom crowd did boo at half-time and also when Grady Diangana was brought off [Steve Madeley].
However, as soon as Dieng made his mistake, the Hawthorns came alive, and they practically sucked the ball into the net.
Grant has had an OK start to the season, and hopefully, this is the point for him to kick on.
The forward deserves credit for having a strike that led to Dieng’s error, and then he showed all the composure required to slot that second goal away.
This was a decent interview from Grant, who also revealed that he wants to claim that first one for himself, like all good strikers should do.
