Sandro confident that West Brom have the quality to avoid being dragged into relegation scrap

The Baggies are currently eight points clear of the Premier League's relegation zone.

Sandro is confident that West Brom have enough quality to keep themselves away from a relegation scrap, the Birmingham Mail reports.

Tony Pulis' men are currently eight points clear of the drop zone in the top flight. However, their recent form has been slightly alarming, and arguably suggests that they may be vulnerable should the sides below manage to go on a winning run. 

But the Baggies midfielder - who is currently on loan from Championship side Queens Park Rangers - believes that the team have the ability in their ranks to look up rather than worry about being dragged down.

"I've only been here for two weeks but what I can see is that this club doesn't have to fight against relegation," he told the Mail.

"Come on, this is a good club and what I see is that we can fight around the middle of the table.

"We have 32 points and with one or two more wins we can see what we can achieve."

Although their current form is not overly impressive - having won just two of their seven league games since the turn of the year - their most recent result suggests that they have the fighting spirit to keep their heads above water this season.

They managed to come away from Goodison Park with an excellent 1-0 win against a talented Everton side. Despite being under enormous pressure for much of the game, West Brom bagged the three points as Salomon Rondon scored with their only attempt on target.

While the performance against the Toffees would not have pleased Pulis too much, their ability to dig in and earn the victory shows that they have a lot of the attributes they will need if they hope to stay well away from the bottom three, and perhaps push towards the top half.
