"It's going to mean a lot (to get out of trouble)".

"They are big pressure games especially now". In addition to that, I am also a fan of the under 2.5 goals.

Pardew, who tasted his first victory since replacing Tony Pulis in the Hawthorns hotseat when Albion won in the FA Cup at Exeter last week, has issued an emotional rallying call as his team hunt a belated spark to their top flight campaign.

As part of the next set of domestic broadcast rights, broadcasters will bid for packages of games that will include 7.45 p.m. kick-offs on Saturdays and more bank holiday and midweek fixtures. Where West Brom are in desperate need of breaking a 20 game win-less league run which dates back to the early weeks of the season.

Barry continued: "The position we're in now it's going to be tough". We've got the players and the squad to do that.

"We go into every game whether it's Chelsea away, Arsenal away, knowing that we want to get some points". This weekend they will up be against Brighton in a game that they must win if they wish to keep up with the rest of the teams that are fighting for survival. That will be massive to build on.

Although West Brom find themselves in the bottom three, they are just four points from safety and they still have a number of their fellow relegation strugglers to play at home: Southampton, Swansea City and Huddersfield Town.

"It's small steps and today is a small step to get that winning feeling back in the changing room".

"The reason why the 40 point mark is one we can all associate with is because of law of averages and that's not a bad one to have in your mind to think about to aim for". We work on doing the right things and the manager can get it right.

West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Pardew will be able to call upon three senior players for the visit of Brighton and Hove Albion on Saturday afternoon, but two more key players remain on the sidelines, according to BBC Sport.
