West Brom striker Matej Vydra has called for manager Pepe Mel to partner him with Victor Anichebe in attack, according to Sky
The pair came off the bench in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Fulham, a move that proved vital as Vydra grabbed the late leveller.
The 21-year-old believes that he could form a great partnership with former Everton man Anichebe if they are given the chance.
“If me and Victor play together that is better for me because he is strong and I am quick,” said Vydra.
“It is good for me but it is the coach’s call. For me it is always better if I play with a strong striker. The goal was a big moment for me. I went on the pitch and it was important to score a goal.”
Despite the dropped points at Fulham, the Czech forward believes that it was an important result for the Baggies.
West Brom currently sit just in seventeenth place, just one point above the relegation zone, and four points away from bottom club Fulham.
“Before the game we needed three points, but we only got one,” added Vydra.
“But if we’d lost to Fulham and they’d taken three points they would have been closer to us, so in that way it’s a good result. We dropped two points but after the game it is a good point for us.”
