West Brom missing goals - Zuiverloon

They have scored the least amount of goals in the top flight this season so it's no wonder they are sitting bottom of the table, but West Brom can improve sharply if the goals were flowing more regularly.

They are the sentiments of Baggies defender Gianni Zuiverloon who believes if the team can score more freely it will ease the pressure on other positions around the park.

"We have to keep confidence because we are not playing badly," he said.

"We have good movement around the park and only in the last part of the pitch is it a little bit difficult for us.

"It is a little bit difficult for us to score. That is what we are missing. We are playing good football and, if we were scoring goals, the back four would have less pressure than we have now.

"We can't afford to make a mistake. If we are scoring goals, the back four is more relaxed.

"The teams we are playing against, don't have so many chances against us but, with the chances they get, they score.

"We get two or three chances and we don't. That is the lesson we have got to learn. Not taking the chances is costing us - and also stupid mistakes by the back four sometimes."
