West Brom veteran Gareth Barry hails fans for Everton stalemate

West Brom veteran Gareth Barry thanked fans for their support after yesterday's 0-0 draw with Everton.

The experienced midfielder has called for continued unity as Albion turn their attention to the New Year's Day meeting with Arsenal (ko 4.30pm).

“Considering the situation we're in and the run we're on I thought the crowd were fantastic," said Barry.

“They really stuck with us and that's partly down to the effort the boys put in on the pitch.

“In the dressing room and with the fans, we have to stick together at what is a difficult time.

“It only takes one result sometimes to turn a season.

“The run is clearly disappointing but we're aware that a win or back-to-back wins and you find yourself in a much more positive position very quickly. That's our target.

“The main thing is that we all stick together."
