Joleon Lescott reacts on Twitter to West Brom draw, Foster gives verdict

The West Brom stars took to social media along with Craig Gardner after their side's 0-0 draw at Sunderland.

Joleon Lescott thanked supporters on Twitter after West Brom's 0-0 draw at Sunderland on Saturday afternoon.

The centre-back could have been sent off during a controversial early incident at the Stadium of Light but remained on-field as both sides played out a goalless stalemate.

Lescott thanked the traveling West Brom fans for their support and also gave his verdict on the draw.

Indeed, the 32-year-old feels the result was a fair one, although some Sunderland fans who felt he should have been sent off might disagree...

Meanwhile, Craig Gardner also praised a 'great result,' while goalkeeper Ben Foster was happy with the Baggies' clean sheet.

The 0-0 draw was in stark contrast to West Brom's last match - a 4-0 win over West Ham United in the FA Cup - although Sunderland will surely welcome the point after recent defeats.

The result leaves West Brom 14th in the Premier League, five points clear of the drop zone. Sunderland sit two places further down but are only two points behind the Baggies.

Up next for Lescott and co are Southampton, who visit the Hawthorns next Saturday. The Black Cats, meanwhile, travel to Manchester United the very same afternoon.
