Pulis delighted with McClean


Tony Pulis has heaped praise on James McClean after watching the Republic of Ireland international's bullet header earn West Brom a 1-1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur at the Hawthorns.

The winger has endured a difficult time since joining the club from Wigan in the summer, drawing criticism for again refusing to wear the poppy last month and also receiving a formal warning from the FA for taunting former club Sunderland's fans after the Baggies beat them 1-0 earlier this season.

However, Pulis is delighted with how the Derry native has settled in at the club and believes he is now a crowd favourite too.

"James has become a favourite here at the Hawthorns through his challenges and the way he picks up the ball,” Pulis told the club's website.

"He started sloppy and gave the first two balls away, but I have been delighted with him and he has been fantastic for us.

"He has been playing ever so well and goals are probably what he hasn't brought to the team. He got a terrific goal here and hopefully he can go on and score a few more.

"We've been very pleased with him. His performances have been excellent. He's been fantastic.

"I don't think anyone was doing somersaults when we signed him and felt he was going to have a big influence here but he has been tremendous.

"He's part of the group, sets the tone for the rest of the team with his energy and his performances have been top class."
