After a dramatic defeat to Leicester City, which piled the misery onto a badly out-of-form West Brom, midfielder James Morrison feels the side need more mental strength to turn their slump around, reports BBC
The Albion man admitted confidence is low in the camp following a woeful run of form in the Premier League that has seen the Midlands outfit losing three consecutive games in the division.
Tony Pulis’ men have lost four of their previous five, and their away form has been lacklustre too, with no win since December. It sees Albion getting dragged into a relegation battle, as the sides below them in the table have been picking up points in recent weeks.
Pulis’ men next travel to Selhurst Park to face Crystal Palace, which won’t be easy given the Eagles’ brilliant form of late, so West Brom could be in big trouble if they fail to win on the weekend.
The Baggies have six games of the Premier League season remaining, and they are desperate not to let their previous good form slip, as they want to be comfortably away from the bottom three.
We’ve massive games ahead. It’s going to be hard. Our confidence is low, but it’s all about having the mental strength now. Palace is probably the one place where no-one wants to go. Look what happened to Man City there and then they won away at Sunderland,” said Morrison.
