Saido: It's time to punish opposition

Striker looking for improvement in defence and attack

SAIDO Berahino says it is time for Albion to “punish” opposition at both ends of the pitch as he looks ahead to Sunday’s game at Tottenham (ko 1.30pm). 

Defensive errors have been costly for the Baggies so far this term with goals also at a premium.

And the 21-year-old striker insists Alan Irvine's men will be doing their upmost to improve on recent performances at the weekend.

“We are all trying to gel and become a strong team to beat,” said Berahino.

“We are working hard to become a good team going forward and also a team that scores lots of goals.

“Every game we are trying to improve.

“That’s what we do at the training ground we make sure that we stay together and we are not letting anything get between us.

“We know what we have to do going into the next game.

“We are staying as a team and we will ensure what happened against Everton doesn't happen again.

“I think we need to work hard at the training ground and learn how to punish teams.

“We have given ourselves a mountain to climb by conceding soft goals and we need to stop doing that.

“We are in this together and once we can get rid of conceding those goals it gives us a chance to go forward and win the game.

“At the end of the day it’s about getting the points on the board.

“We are trying to stay together and I am trying to do the best I can to ensure we start getting some points on the board.

“Spurs is not an easy place to go but we know what we have to do, we have to work on the training ground to try and improve and learn from our mistakes.”
