The strike duo stepped off the bench against Fulham on Saturday and helped to rescue a point in a 1-1 draw.

Vydra snatched a late leveller at The Hawthorns and feels there could be more to come from an understanding with Anichebe if the pair are given the opportunity to spearhead a survival bid.

The Czech frontman said in the Express and Star: "If me and Victor play together that is better for me because he is strong and I am quick.

"It is good for me but it is the coach's call. For me it is always better if I play with a strong striker.

"The goal was a big moment for me. I went on the pitch and it was important to score a goal.

"Before the game we needed three points, but we only got one.

"But if we'd lost to Fulham and they'd taken three points they would have been closer to us, so in that way it's a good result.

"We dropped two points but after the game it is a good point for us.

"In the first half we had a chance for Thievy (Bifouma) but he missed it and Fulham shot once and scored a goal.

"In the second half they dropped back and just defended."

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.
