Shane Long is delighted to be back among the goals for West Brom following a spell on the sidelines that left him 'devastated'.
An X-rated challenge from Aston Villa defender Alan Hutton during a derby date on 22nd October left the Baggies striker with a chipped bone in his knee.
The Republic of Ireland international was left angered by the treatment dished out to him by Villa that day, with an untimely injury ruling him out of crucial fixtures for club and country.
He has, however, returned to action sooner than expected and was on the scoresheet as West Brom saw off Bolton 2-1 on Saturday.
"I was just angry that I was going to be out for a while," said the 24-year-old, who has now netted four times in 10 Premier League appearances.
"I felt I'd been playing well even if it had only been for 15 or so minutes and I was just frustrated.
"I got kicked four or five times on the pitch that day (against Villa) - maybe I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
"I don't know if they targeted me but it felt like it. I'm sure he never meant to crack a bone in my leg though.
"I knew it was going to be a bad enough injury at the time because I hadn't felt a pain like that before.
"I'd played well against Wolves and Sunderland and I started off well against Villa - then it was cut short.
"I was devastated because I felt I had just started to get going.
"But I've kept my head over the last four weeks and I've moved on. It's only been four weeks so it could have been a lot worse."
