West Brom collected three important points in the race for survival, but that too came against fellow relegation threatened team Norwich city away from home. Hence, this was effectively six points for the club, which could see them safely remain in the Premier league for next season. The appointment of Pepe Mel at the start of the second half of the campaign was left with several doubts from the supporters and pundits, as the former Real Betis manager was unable to get wins under his belt. He did achieve credible draws against the likes of Liverpool and Chelsea at home.

However, they have been starting to pick up wins of late and the latest one could not have come in a more significant match according to goalkeeper Ben Foster. The former Manchester United man says that he is not only happy to keep the clean sheet, but the three points against the club gives them a lot of confidence that they can avoid relegation this season. The win moves West Brom one place above the drop zone and they are five points above Fulham, who occupy the 18th place. A late equaliser from Cardiff denied West Brom three points last weekend, but they were happy to hold onto this win.

"It was a monster win for us today. We've got seven games left and we have a couple of tough ones in there, we've got to play City, Tottenham and Arsenal as well. The teams around us we're playing it's important to pick up three points. We started today, it was a fantastic response from the lads after last week and we're really, really happy. I have to say a massive well done to the management staff really,” said the goalkeeper, who is on the fringes of appearing for the England national team once again.
