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."

think that puts all doubts over Benteke's quality to bed. Can he do it after receiving the ball to feet, in the box, totally unmarked, on a warm, sunny afternoon in Swindon? Oh yes he can! This year is definitely Liverpool's year. YNWA.

ll very well selling all midfield and strikers but unless we bring anyone in that is better than what we had then it will be a terrible transfer window in my view. Sorted out the defense but our midfield and striker options look very light.

ove it when Jose accuses others of being defensive, cynical and playing to win. If I was Wenger, I'd get that quote laminated and framed - surely the biggest compliment he's ever received from Mourinho. You've got him riled Arsene - you're relevant again!
