MATCH QUOTES

"It's a big relief to win the game and see it though. West Brom never gave up. "I thought we played splendidly. It was our third away game in five-and-a-half days and to win it is magnificent. "Our goals came at really important times. We could have done with another one after half-time when we had a couple of great chances, but we were great." Martin O'Neill. โ€œThat was a great day. We won 2-1 at The Hawthorns. โ€œJohn Carew scored the first for us - a great header. โ€œThen we broke away and the ball came down to me, I took it past Jonas Olsson and smashed it into the corner. โ€œI was on a real high. Thereโ€™s no better feeling than scoring in a derby.โ€ Gabby Agbonlahor, 2014
