BUM STEER; Dorrans grabs first goal - with backside.
ALBION midfielder Graham Dorrans claimed his first-ever goal in English football - courtesy of his backside.
The Baggies midfielder got a touch to Chris Brunt's secondhalf free kick to put Albion 2-1 up against Portsmouth.
And the Scotland under-21 international claimed the goal, drawing no complaints from Brunt.
Touch Manager Tony Mowbray was pleased with his young midfielder, who produced an excellent display in what was only his second Premier League start.
"Dorrans got a touch," said Mowbray. "The boys are saying it hit Dorrans on the backside - it must be a fairly large backside! "He's certainly claiming it. I have no problems with that if he wishes to claim it." Mowbray admitted that a touch of naivety ruined Albion's hopes of a victory but he refused to mention the R word - relegation.
"We had enough opportunities - some great goalscoring opportunities," he added.
"It's not the result we wanted and that's why I tried to make positive substitutions.
"At times we are naive and earlier this season this would have been a good result.
"But we competed and worked hard. The fans deserve a team that is playing for them right to the death, regardless of their destination come the end of the season." MATCHDAY - PAGES 2-3
