West Brom boss Mel feels "blessed" after victory over Swansea

West Bromwich Albion boss Pepe Mel was relieved after their 2-1 win over Swansea City.

Mel felt "blessed" to finally get a win under his belt as West Brom manager. The Baggies upset the odds at the Liberty Stadium to come from behind and earn a 2-1 win which saw them move three points clear of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone.

Mel, who took charge on January 9, said: "I am blessed. For the fans, for the players, we need to win and in football, confidence is all.

"The players need to win and now it's different, I hope."
