Tony Pulis still worried about relegation
Another point and the Baggies boss might stop worrying
March 7th, 2016
A massive win at the weekend for West Bromwich Albion should have left manager Tony Pulis with little worry about regarding any possible relegation, however despite his men clinching the three points against Manchester United at the Hawthorns yesterday, the Baggies boss still has concerns about the possibility of dropping down to the Championship.
The West Midlands side have managed some ten points from their last four Premier League outings, their latest victory over the Red Devils taking them up to eleventh in the table.
Pulis admitted that the usual 40-point safety mark would be enough to see his side remain in the top flight for another season, however he acknowledged that until the Baggies are mathematical certainties to avoid relegation he can’t rest completely.
“Let’s get to 40 and then take it from there. I think 40 points is always (required),” he told reporters.
“It is very difficult managing teams in the lower half of the Premiership. It is really, really hard work mentally and physically. You take it on board and worry about every result, your own and everything else.
“It can drive you insane at times and this is exactly the same as the clubs I have managed. You never stop worrying, never stop thinking that things can turn. You have to keep driving people and driving people through. I think we deserved it in the end.”
Following the weekend result, West Brom are some fifteen points clear of the relegation zone with just nine games left to play. We think you can rest a little now Tony.
