Cape Town - West Brom defender Joleon Lescott is gearing up to face his first ever relegation battle with the Baggies struggling in the English Premiership.
Alan Irvine's side have won just three games this season and are on a run of four defeats in a row and Lescott is eyeing the Hull City clash for a much needed victory.
The Baggies face Aston Villa and QPR after their battle with Hull with Lescott stressing the importance of ending their losing streak.
“Hull is definitely a good opportunity for us to stop this run.
“The next three games are vital.” Lescott said.
“I’m like the rest of the lads, we knew it was going to be tough,” said Lescott.
“But I didn’t come here to fight relegation. If needs be we’ll dig deep for the next two months and get clear.
“It’s not something I’ve ever had to do before, it’s a new test, but something I’m enjoying.
"I don’t like losing though, I hate it to be honest. I don’t even like to use the word ‘hate’."
Lescott enjoyed successful spells with Everton and Manchester City but is now in the midst of a relegation scrap.
Reports in England suggest a loss against Hull City on Saturday could cost Alan Irvine his job at The Hawthorns.
