Slaven Bilic says he's happy to manage Albion's busy schedule after the Baggies progressed to the FA Cup Fourth Round. 

Bilic made 11 changes as Albion travelled to Charlton but his side still came out 1-0 winners at The Valley. 

The FA Cup tie was Albion's ninth game since the start of December but Bilic is relishing seeing how far Albion can go in the competiton. 

"It is great to go through in the cup. It doesn't matter that you are going to have more games and the league game against Cardiff is going to have to be rescheduled," he said. 

"It's good to do a bit of both - to rest your players who are tired and to go through, and to give the players who didn't start a game some time.

"I think the performance was good. It wasn't easy because we didn't score more goals and there is always a chance for the opponent to score, and they had a chance at the end when they hit the bar.

"But apart from that, from the beginning to the end we were much better. We were dominant. We should have, and could have, scored more goals."
