Cape Town - Having collecting 10 points from their last four Premier League games, West Bromwich Albion centre-back James Chester says the Baggies are focused on continuing their impressive run of form.

Following a slow start to the 2015/16 Premier League campaign, West Brom have managed to turn things around, currently sitting 11th in the league standings with 39 points.

And with just nine games to go before the end of the season, Tony Pulis' men will be aiming to keep themselves well clear of an impending relegation scrap and secure a finish in the top half of the table.

"We knew a few games ago that the run we had was really tough," Chester said.

"But to take 10 points from the last four games makes things a lot more comfortable for ourselves so we are really pleased with the run we're on.

"Everybody is talking about the 40 point mark so with nine games to go, we should have put ourselves in a great position.

"The gaffer keeps talking about trying to continue our run because it's just not easy to get points in this league."
