Gary Rowett: Wants little less dazzle

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."

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.
