Brunt: Baggies equaliser
Chris Brunt is confident West Bromwich Albion can have a successful season after Saturday's 1-1 draw against Tottenham Hotspur.
Brunt scored his 50th league goal to help salvage a point for the Baggies after Spurs took the lead through Luka Modric.
The former Sheffield Wednesday winger was brought off before the end and could only watch on as his team-mates created a glut of chances to snatch all three points.
And while Brunt admits Albion were disappointed not to claim maximum points, the Northern Ireland international was keen to praise the fact Roberto Di Matteo's promoted side remain unbeaten at home.
He told Sky Sports: "Obviously Spurs started well in the first half and they had the majority of the game but in the second half we came into our own and swapped things round tactically.
"We had a couple of chances towards the end so that was disappointing but it's a good point and it keeps our home form going."
West Brom have inherited a reputation for being a yo-yo club after spending the last few seasons hopping between the Premier League and the Championship.
But Brunt thinks the current Hawthorns crop are more than capable of staying in England's top flight this term.
"We're looking to improve from the last time we came up," added the 25-year-old.
"If we keep ticking along and pick up points here and there and make The Hawthorns a difficult place to come to, then we should have a good time this season."
