West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke insists his players won't relax after going past the 40-points mark.

Clarke has conceded that Europe may just be beyond Albion but is confident his squad will not take their foot off the pedal in the final quarter of the season.

He said: "The motivation is good. We had a chat before we went to Chelsea last week about moving into the final part of the season.

"I asked them to show me at Stamford Bridge that they had the desire to stay in the top half of the table and to push on.

"I saw enough there despite losing 1-0 to know we could look forward to the last 10 games. We showed that last week and showed it against Swansea.

"It was important for the players that they put on a performance like that and important they got three points against a very good Swansea team."
