West Brom captain Brunt delighted getting on scoresheet

West Bromwich Albion captain Chris Brunt was delighted to get on the scoresheet in victory at QPR.

The Northern Ireland international broke the deadlock with a 30-yard screamer as Albion secured their third triumph on the road this term.

"It has been a frustrating season for me as I've been in and out of the team with injuries," Brunt told the Albion website. "I've had a few games recently but a goal has been a long time coming and I'm delighted to have got one.

"The gaffer had a bit of a joke with me the other day about me not scoring enough goals - but I knew he meant it!

"It's been a long time since I scored and I haven't got enough goals from midfield over the last couple of years.

"I try to get shots on target from outside the box and I knew as soon as I'd hit it that I'd hit it well enough for it to go in."
