Fortune thanks West Brom fans for supporting him while on margins

Marc-Antoine Fortune has thanked West Bromwich Albion fans for supporting him after his comeback on the weekend.

His patience for his chance was rewarded as he played a huge part in ending the club's 30-year wait for a victory on Stoke City soil.

"I really would like to say thank you to the fans because they really supported me," said Fortune to the WBA website.

"This means a lot to me because it has been a difficult time. I can see they are always behind me and I hope I can kick on. It has been a long time waiting for my first start of the season and I was really excited.

"I thought I gave 100 per cent. It's always difficult not playing. It has been hard but I'm a professional and I keep working.

"I always do my best in training to show I'm ready to play."
