Tony Pulis watched his battling Baggies side earn a hard fought 0-0 draw at Everton and then claimed there’s still more work to do.
Albion were under pressure for the majority of the game at Goodison Park with hosts having 69% possession on a cold night at Merseyside.
But a defence marshalled by Joleon Lescott and the imperious Claudio Yacob held firm and continued Pulis’ unbeaten run as Albion head coach.
“It was a resilient performance,” said the Welshman.
"The lads worked very, very hard.
"What we have to do - it won't come overnight - we have to be better on the ball. We gave the ball away too cheaply in midfield, where we have good players.
"We need to get passes off to get us up the pitch. We need to commit if we're going to be solid. But it was a fantastic effort and we're pleased.
"The lads have worked hard. Individually you can't criticise them in any shape or form. It takes time and it won't happen overnight - it will be a struggle. We need to pick up as many points as possible. It will go to the wire."
