Stoke point bigger than a win – Evans

Jonny Evans praised West Brom’s ‘character’ after their 1-1 draw at Stoke and said it was a better than in the 4-2 win over West Ham.

The 28-year-old Northern Ireland international defender played his part in helping set up Salomon Rondon to score Albion’s late equaliser in the game at the bet365 Stadium on Saturday.

And, while Tony Pulis’ side only came out with a point in his 1,000th game as a manager, Evans felt the team showed more mettle in the game than the previous weekend when they put four goals past the struggling Hammers at the Hawthorns.

“It wasn’t our best performance, it was very scrappy,” said Evans. “As soon as we came out for the start of the game the wind just picked up, it’s always like that here.

“We’re probably more pleased with picking up a point here than the performance against West Ham. We dug in and sometimes it shows character to do that.”
