No let up for Baggies - Foster

by Michelle Fortune , 26 February 2013

West Brom are as hungry as ever to win games despite all but securing their Premier League status.

Victory against Sunderland at the weekend saw the Baggies reach the 40-point mark and barring a catastrophic collapse they will be playing Premier League football again next season.

Steve Clarke's side would be forgiven for taking it easy in the final 11 games of the season but, with European football a possibility, Ben Foster insists that no one will be treating the final few months as a holiday.

"Nobody here is treating the rest of the season as a holiday just because we're nearly safe," Foster reasoned.

"I think people were starting to think (before the two wins) that we'd switched off and that we were going to coast to the end of the season.

"That hurt us to be truthful because that isn't the way that this team is. The bunch of lads we have are not like that."

Foster added: "We are as hungry to win games now as we were back in August.

"We go into games wanting desperately to win.

"We want to build on the great start we had and finish as high up in the table as we possibly can."
