'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Post Baggies: Absent JFK

Speaking to the Ronnie Gill, Joe Kinnear has given his version of things on the whole hospital episode. With two weeks to recover the boss hopes to be back behind his desk pronto and good to go for the Everton game. He said:

"I woke up on Saturday morning at 5.30am feeling unwell, so our club doctor checked my blood pressure and it was high. We left it for a while and then decided to go up to the hospital. They decided to keep me in after speaking to a specialist. They`ve done some tests and we`ll get some more results today.

A cardiologist is going to have a look at me today and then I hope to be allowed to head home tomorrow morning. I feel a-OK and hopefully I will be back at work soon. I`m fighting fit and, with a bit of a break before the next game, I hope to be back for the Everton match for normal service.

Oba had a fitness test on Friday, but after a long chat we decided there was a big risk factor if he didn`t feel 100% right. So we didn`t risk him. Now he has a little break to get right for Everton. I knew that I didn`t have to take such a big risk with him because Peter Lovenkrands can also play in the same position.

We`re still in a real scrap despite this win. We`ve always been in a relegation battle. But we are looking to push on from here despite some hard games coming up. The lads were terrific and it was a great result for us. A lot of people say West Brom defended badly, but that`s sour grapes from my point of view.

We put in a great performance and showed we can attack teams with some of the players we have here. I`ve watched through the highlights a few times now and I`m proud of the lads. We scored three goals and I was pleased with Kevin Nolan and Ryan Taylor, not to mention Peter Lovenkrands.

Taylor and Steven Taylor combined well for the corner, while Lovenkrands scored and Nolan was the driving force in midfield. I was also delighted to see such camaraderie in the team and pleased to see that the whole squad showed their appreciation to the fans at the end."
