Olsson confident West Brom have know-how to avoid drop

West Bromwich Albion defender Jonas Olsson is confident they have the experience to beat the drop.

Olsson is confident that the top-flight knowhow in the squad will help them avoid the drop to the Championship.

"Experience is going to count for a lot," said the Sweden international, who returned to action after injury in the 1-1 draw against Fulham in the Baggies' last outing.

"What we have in this squad is a lot of Premier League experience - and a lot of experience of being in a situation like this.

"With the gaffer and the coaching staff, we've had time to work on the things we need to do better.

"In that respect, the postponed game with Sunderland came at a good time. We know what it takes to do well at this level.

"There is a lot of spirit in the group and we're all confident we're going to dig this season out."
