“I think we have got to be happy,” said the ex-Manchester City midfielder.

“We can play a lot better but it was the first game of the season away from home, so sometimes you have to take a point and build on it." said Rodwell on safc.com.

“The away fans were amazing! We would like to thank all of them for coming down and supporting us.

“Hopefully next week against Manchester United they will do the same and we will give them something to cheer about.”

Making his debut for the Baggies against his former team was Craig Gardner.

“It was a good game and we were unlucky not to get all three points,” he said.

“I thought we played really well in the first half and battled when we had to in the second. " the midfielder told wba.co.uk.

“At the start of a new season it is always nice to get a result and we picked one up after going one down. All credit to the lads for that. " said Gardner.

“To go one down so early on, we could have folded but we didn’t. It’s a decent result against a good Sunderland team.

“We will take the positives out of it because it was a good performance from us."
