McAuley well aware West Brom in relegation battle

Gareth McAuley has made it clear that he understands West Bromwich Albion are well and truly in a relegation battle.

The Baggies find themselves sitting 16th on the table having saluted just once in their past 14 outings and drawing on seven occasions during that time.

Ahead of Saturday's trip to fellow cellar dwellers Crystal Palace, McAuley is not taking any backwards steps in relation to Albion's current situation.

"There is a realisation that we're in a scrap and we know that. But there are plenty of boys that have been in that scrap before and they know what to do," he said.

"We have to stay positive because we haven't been getting battered by teams and we know that.

"But we haven't been getting results and we know we need to change these draws into wins and hopefully do enough to make sure we stay in the division."
