Second-half goals from Jeff Hughes and Jamille Matt set up a granstand finish as the home side battled back from three-nil down at the break.

And Rowett was delighted to see his team safely across the line - thanks to goals from Rene Howe, Adam McGurk and Chris Hussey - but insists there would be no getting carried away with the result.

"We've started the season well. That's it. I'm not going to look at a league table," he said, with Albion having taken seven points from the opening nine on offer.

"We know there's a long way to go and we've got to keep performing as a team.

"We've got a really bright group of players and I'm pleased with them."

Yet the finale, at a rain-soaked Highbury, was not to Rowett's liking.

He said:"It wasn't a wonderful game of football, but never the less you've seen five goals.

"There were some real bits of entertainment.

"Maybe it's ended up being just a little too entertaining for my liking."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
