Albion developed a habit of playing poorly and with a lack of ambition and dynamism against lower half teams at home last season.

On their own patch, Albion suffered defeats to Bournemouth, Watford and Norwich and also failed to beat Swansea and Aston Villa.

It’s a very different story this season.

Express and Star 

In the first two years of Tony Pulis's reign, Albion won 96 points. In the two years before that, they picked up just 68.

Regardless of how much his football divided opinion during that stint, there's no doubt he has got results. When he took over, the Baggies were in 16th. Now, they lie in eighth place and fans are dreaming of Europe.

Last season, there was plenty of discontent swirling around the support base as the team lurched to safety in unsatisfactory fashion. But this season, Pulis has injected some much-needed excitement into his side, particularly at The Hawthorns, where they have now won four of their last five, scoring 13 goals on the way.


In-form West Brom accepted Hull's gifts to pile more misery on the Tigers.

Chris Brunt and Gareth McAuley cashed in on errors before James Morrison clinched a 3-1 win for the Baggies at The Hawthorns.

Robert Snodgrass had given Hull a first-half lead, but the Tigers beat themselves during a second half littered with costly defensive mistakes.


West Bromwich Albion came from a goal behind to complete a second win in 48 hours and a sixth in 10 matches to strengthen what is becoming a realistic challenge for a Europa League place.

Yet manager Tony Pulis insisted that he was not looking beyond his annual quest to make his team relegation-proof.

“Forty points is the target,” Pulis said. “You only have to look around here. Two of our big local rivals have lost today playing in the Championship.
