Mel knows any victory tonight would be a major achievement and he is urging his players to show courage on the ball after they fell back against Tottenham in their last game, throwing away a 3-0 lead before eventually drawing 3-3.
“This is something we have talked about this week – not changing our style of play or mentality and believing in ourselves,” said Mel.
“Tottenham made us change our style of play and that was detrimental because I thought West Brom played a great game.
“The only thing we’re talking about is winning. We’ve not thought about anything else.
“We are preparing the team to go there and win. In football anyone can beat anyone else.
“In our last game Manuel was Malaga head coach and I was Betis head coach and it was 3-0 for us.
“But that’s not important because we are with other clubs now. This time 1-0 would be good."
