Steve Bruce has spoken of his delight at stuffing the Baggies although he is appalled at the challenge by Robinson on Johnson.
'The game had everything that's good about a derby in terms of the attitude and application.
'But what saddens me is the injury to my captain who has gone to hospital with a suspected broken jaw.
'The more I look at that challenge by Robinson, the more it appalls me.
'He's a very good player but there's no need for that and I know for a fact that he's gone out to do Jonty.
'I've seen it five or six times and it's horrific, so that takes the edge off the result for me because I've now got to go and see my captain in hospital.
'When I needed him last week he performed and the same again today, and when he goes down we all worry because he's as tough as they come.
'Muamba was absolutely outstanding.
'And McSheffrey is going to be a crowd favourite here, because he's tough and gets you off your seat with his game.
'It was the first time I've seen him through the middle today in a game and he's definitely given me food for thought.
'You can see why some people think he's better up there because with him and Bendtner playing up front together in the last 25 minutes there was a hell of an understanding between the two of them straightaway.
'I've said before that if we finish above Albion I think we'll get promoted - it's as simple as that.
'I think they've got a quality team they were obviously very confident coming here with the way they took the ball and passed it well.
'We needed a huge effort from our young lads today and what a performance they gave.'
