Robert Snodgrass backs West Brom to escape relegation

Robert Snodgrass believes West Bromwich Albion will escape relegation following their spirited display against Manchester United last week.

The Scotland international who became Sam Allardyce’s first signing as Albion boss when he arrived from West Ham back in January insists that the team spirit exhibited by the team in the tie against United makes him feel they can defy the odds and pull off a great escape.

“We’ve been in every game I have played in apart from Manchester City which was a tough one to take. But we have been capable of winning every other game I have been involved in. He (Allardyce) is getting the lads buying into what he does-which is keeping teams in the Premier League and winning football matches.

“We’re all trying to pull in the same direction so it’s been great coming in here. The main thing now, though, is points on the board. Collectively we have to stop conceding goals-because that is what wins you football matches. We are scoring goals so it’s crucial we stop the ball going into our net. We will keep working on it on the training ground until we get it right,” he said.

Albion head into four games against sides also struggling at the wrong end of the table with their first task coming against Burnley this Saturday before ties against Brighton, Newcastle, and Crystal Palace.
