West Bromwich Albion captain Scott Carson says they showed great character to draw with Tottenham.

Carson, 25, says coming from behind against Spurs proves this team has more backbone.

He said: "In the past we maybe would have conceded the first goal and then thought 'Oh here we go'.

"We could have gone 2-0 down before half-time and it would have been game over. But the manager has got us playing with a never-say-die attitude.

"We played a top side and gone from 1-0 down to deserving to win the game.

"I saw Jerome Thomas win a 50-50 sliding tackle and those are the sort of things we didn't do two years ago.

"Hopefully the penny is starting to drop and we know what we need to do to stay in the league."
