West Brom boss Mowbray happy to be off bottom

West Brom boss Tony Mowbray was thrilled with his players after their 3-0 victory over Middlesbrough.

Goals from Chris Brunt, newcomer Marc-Antoine Fortune and Robert Koren moved Albion off the bottom and level on points with Boro who ended the game with 10 men after the second-half red card of Didier Digard.

Mowbray said: "We are off the bottom but getting out of the bottom three is a more crucial psychological barrier to overcome and we are going to have win a few more games to make that happen.

"In Premier League games you have to win back to back games to get out of trouble. No-one at our club is thinking we have achieved anything.

"We have given ourselves a chance by bringing the rest of the league back towards us a little bit and we will enjoy the second half of the season.

"There are some fixtures we can look forward with, total respect to them, against the likes of Sunderland, Newcastle, Wigan and Bolton, the sort of teams who are in and around us.

"They have all still to come to the Hawthorns and they are games, if we are right on the day, we can win."
