Mowbray: West Brom only two signings away from top ten team

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray is convinced they're only two signings away from being a top ten club.

The Baggies face being relegated this season, but Mowbray says: "Can we match teams in the Premier League? They can't beat us playing football but they can do the other side of the game.

"We need some experienced men in our team who know the Premier League, who have been there, seen it, felt it, worn the shirt and know what it takes.

"We're a couple of players away from being a decent team. We are 'so near' and I like the team. But we are judged on results.

"I believe we are close to being a team that could be in the top 10 but we have flaws that continue to let the team down like some of the defending recently. Those are the areas that need addressing.

"We will try and play to our strengths while nullifying the strengths of the opposition but no-one is interested in tactics if we lose."
