Cape Town - West Bromwich Albion manager Tony Pulis insists there is no need for concern, despite the Baggies going nine games without a win in all competitions.

Pulis's charges last won a game on August 22 when they beat Accrington Stanley 3-1 in the second round of the Carabao Cup. Since then they have only managed four draws and five defeats.

However, the West Brom boss is confident that his team only need one win to reignite their campaign and he is determined to witness this new beginning at Huddersfield on Saturday.

“You want it to finish and end,” said Pulis, according to the Express and Star.

“But we've taken the club further and further over the last three seasons. You get these periods, ups and downs. Everybody outside the top six will have good and bad runs.

“We just need a result to get out of it and give us the confidence. From then on we'll be fine.”

He added: “A lot of things have happened this year that are different,” said Pulis. “We've picked up injuries as well which we've never done.

“It would be nice to get all the players fit and then you can pick a team and system that you want to play.”
