The Baggies boss delivered his post-match verdict following the 2-2 draw at Vicarage Road.

Carlos Corberan has heaped praise on Jed Wallace after his goal in West Brom’s 2-2 draw with Watford.

Wallace put the Baggies in front after John Swift had equalised following Tom Ince’s opener after three minutes at Vicarage Road.

Matheus Martins equalised for the Hornets and then neither side could find a breakthrough after a thrilling first-half in torrid conditions.

Wallace’s goal was the first of the season, and now it could be the starting point of at least replicating his first campaign - where he had 14 goal contributions.

“I think that could be a big goal for Jed Wallace,” he said in an interview with the clubs official media.

“The players always need to have confidence to score goals.

“Jed Wallace is one player that you can never doubt his commitment with the club and with the group and the games.

“We are humans and things are not always going to work how we want them to all the time, but it’s important to never decrease your levels of effort and commitment. He is never going to do this.

“If you work hard, you’ll recover the best level you can show on the pitch.

“For me, he had an extraordinary game. His goal helped us get an important point.”

West Brom managed to pick themselves up from a disastrous start following Ince’s early opener. Swift’s free-kick was top draw whilst Wallace scored with a strikers finish.

Alex Palmer made several good saves to keep his side in the match whilst Brandon Thomas-Asante had a few opportunities to score.

A statistical view of the game saw Watford have 65% of possession with 12 shots and four landing on target. West Brom had 35% possession with seven shots and five on target.

Asked his thoughts on the game, Corberan said: “We had a big opportunity to score with the chance for Brandon Thomas-Asante, but I have to value all of the effort that has resulted in us getting a draw, especially when you consider we have played back-to-back away games.

“We found the right mentality and the right game understanding to compete tonight.”
