McAuley is happy his late strike also ended the clubâ€™s run of three Barclays Premier League outings without a goal.
â€śIt hung up quite nicely and I just had to get my head on it,â€ť said McAuley to the WBA website. â€śTo be fair, Brunty seems to find me from set pieces.
â€śI could see it all the way and I knew the defender wasnâ€™t able to get to it.
â€śI knew if I got it on target it had a chance of going in.
â€śIt gives you an extra buzz when you get a point in an away game in the last minute."
