James Chester enjoying playing at full-back for West Bromwich Albion

West Brom - The Hawthorns

West Bromwich Albion's James Chester has broken into Tony Pulis' starting line-up more recently.

James Chester has told the Express and Star that he is starting to feel more comfortable playing at left-back for West Bromwich Albion.

Chester was brought to the Baggies’ last summer from Hull City, and he was expected to go straight into the heart of their defence.

However, Tony Pulis decided to play the Welsh international at full-back in his initial appearances for the club, and he struggled to impress.

Chester looked off the pace and fell out of favour, making just five appearances for the Midlands side throughout 2015.

However, the 27-year-old has had a resurgence recently, and Chester believes he is now starting to adapt to the role Pulis has given him.

“Playing full-back is a challenge but the more I’m playing it, the more I’m enjoying it,” said Chester.

“I knew it would be tough (at Leicester) but I enjoyed it and we got a good result against one of the best sides in the country this season.

“Overall I think it was a decent point for both teams.”

Chester has played in the Baggies last three Premier League matches, and he has helped them go on an impressive run of form.

West Brom started their recent run of good results, with a victory against Everton at Goodison Park.

They then picked up a 3-2 win over Crystal Palace last weekend, before claiming a draw against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium in midweek.

West Brom are now in 13th place in the Premier League table, and they have built up a 12 point gap over the drop zone.
