West Brom captain Jonathan Greening expects manager Tony Mowbray to prove himself in the Premiership.
"The manager's always quite relaxed and chilled out. I think he'll be fine at this level," Greening told the Birmingham Mail. "He's played for some big clubs like Middlesbrough, Celtic, Ipswich and he has the wealth of experience from that.
"Being manager of Hibs has helped him as well. He takes things in his stride.
"Hopefully we'll have a good start to the season because a bad start can affect the manager, staff and whole team.
"He's fairly confident that if we can reproduce last year's form then we'll have a great chance this season. Greening is relishing the new campaign.
