Morrison Still Confident On 50 Points

Morrison Still Confident On 50 Points

West Bromwich Albion midfielder James Morrison has been meeting with the media ahead of this weekend's clash against Arsenal and he remains confident we can still reach the 50 point mark.

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail yesterday as he met with the media, Morrison knows that defeats to Crystal Palace and Everton in recent matches has made the 50 point record haul more difficult, but he still feels the squad can achieve it this year.

'It will be difficult, but it's reachable. We've got to stick together, work on stuff, put things right, and we've got the players to do it.'

With Arsenal this weekend and then Manchester United, Morrison knows it's a tough run of fixtures but we've pulled results out before so it's about doing that again.

'We knew that after the run of games we had there was going to be a difficult spell. I believe in seasons you go through that. We went through a stage of winning and over the course of the season you go through tough patches. It's up to us now to stick together and come out on top.'

With further matches against Chelsea, Liverpool and Manchester City with West Brom facing five of the current top six in the end of season run in, he went on to say.

'They've got good players, haven`t they? They've spent fortunes, we've had 16 senior players all season. If you just look at the games each week, it's fine margins. Take one chance and you're flying really, but if you don't you get punished. Similar to the Bournemouth game when we got that victory. They were fully in the game, we scored one of the corners and won 2-1 even though they had the majority of the game.'

With Morrison missing out in the last game against Everton, despite his form and three goals in the last nine appearances, when asked about that he said that head coach Tony Pulis made the calls and he understood and accepted the manager's decision.

'He doesn't need to explain. It's a squad game. I'm old enough and wise enough now to know it's for the good of the team and his decision.'
