Zoltan Gera: Goal against Norwich helped end winless run of four games

The Baggies were the surprise package of the first half of the Premier League season, rising as high as third in the table, until a winless run of four games saw them slip up.

However the Hungarian's fourth goal of the season drew West Brom level against Norwich before Romelu Lukaku's header gave Steve Clarke's side a welcome win at the Hawthorns just before Christmas.

The Boxing Day win over QPR helped put the slump firmly behind West Brom, but Gera is convinced that the battle to beat Norwich will be remembered for the result but not the performance.

"For our game against Norwich we, including me, gave maybe our worst performances of the season," declared the 33-year-old to Nemzeti Sport.

"It's good to score a goal but the club's success is more important, and in the end we can be satisfied as we won.

"Having not won for four games, we needed that victory very much."

ou can't blame De Gea for wanting to leave, he has enough to do in front of goal as it is as well as taking on the role of Man Utd's version of Derek Acorah in trying to contact and organise a defence that isn't there.
