West Brom plans coming together, says Pulis

Tony Pulis Interview - 23/02/2014

Tony Pulis insists that his plans for West Brom are starting to come to fruition.

West Brom manager Tony Pulis has told Sky Sports that his plans for the club are starting to come together.

Goals from Brown Ideye, James Morrison and Saido Berahino secured a 4-0 victory over West Ham in the FA Cup on Saturday and continued Pulis’s excellent start at the Hawthorns.

The former Crystal Palace and Stoke manager has lost just once in his first eight games since taking charge following the sacking of Alan Irvine in January, and Albion currently sit four points clear of the relegation zone.

Plans coming to fruition

Now, Pulis has said that he can see that his plans are starting to come to fruition at the club, but they are continuing to work on the side’s strengths after moving into the FA Cup quarter-finals.

"This team has different strengths to what we had at Stoke and Palace," he said.

"On Wednesday against Swansea, you think it was showing a bit of fruition. There's still a long way to go; we have to keep our feet on the ground and look at it from there."

Pulis also insists that his side will be doing everything to progress in the tournament, despite their proximity to the relegation zone, with a cup run likely to provide a much needed boost to the club’s fans. That means he will be putting out a full-strength side in order to secure a potential FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

"Whatever draw we get, we'll be putting a strong side out to get through," added the Albion boss.
