The 70-year-old helped his two former clubs avoid the drop thanks to strong finishes to the season.
"We will, there is no doubt about that," he said.
"Any teams who are going to avoid relegation will have strong ends to the season. They will need to have. You have got to string results together.
"I remember both of those periods [at Fulham and West Brom] very strongly. The one at Fulham was more dramatic because it went to the last day. The West Brom one was done a bit more dramatically so we did not feel the sword was hanging over us quite as long as at Fulham.
"On both occasions I remember the enormous joy and satisfaction that the players and the whole club took having overcoming a very difficult obstacle in front of them and coming out the other side smelling of roses."
