West Brom striker Victor Anichebe has called on the squad to try and build some momentum after battling to a goalless draw with his former club Everton on Monday.

The Baggies, who are priced at 5.50 to be relegated, are feeling much more positive about their chances of survival for the second half of the campaign after Tony Pulis was brought in to take charge.

The former Stoke boss has already had an impact as the Midlands outfit remain unbeaten in three games, having secured two victories and a draw so far under his guidance.

Anichebe, who started the game at Goodison Park, is hoping that his side can take some much-needed confidence from their recent upturn in form as they aim to climb even further away from the bottom three.

Anichebe said: “I thought we played well, we kept the ball well but it was a difficult game. Maybe we should have put a few chances away, but we didn’t.

“But I still think we can build on that because going to Goodison Park wasn’t always going to be easy but I’m happy we got a result there and hopefully we can build on that.”

The Nigeria international made the move to the Hawthorns two summers ago on loan initially but he was signed on a permanent deal this summer.

The 26-year-old has stressed the importance of turning draws into victories especially on home soil with games against Tottenham and Swansea on the horizon.

He added: “Hopefully we can carry on the spirit to the next game and get a win, because we have to.”
