Full focus on Stoke for Barry

GARETH Barry is determined to see Albion to move on quickly from Sunday’s narrow defeat against Manchester United.

The Baggies face Stoke City at the bet365 Stadium next Saturday and the midfielder wants his side fully focused on the Christmas clash with the Potters.

“It’s important we put this defeat behind us and concentrate fully on Stoke,” said Barry.

“We looked a bit tired in the first half after a big shift at Liverpool on Wednesday.

“We’ve got to try and win a game of football and get three points on the board.

“The quicker the three points come the better.

“We have to realise that that’s another game gone where we’ve not won, but we've also got to put it behind us and work towards getting three points at Stoke next weekend.

“We gave it more of a go in the second half but unfortunately we couldn’t get ourselves back level.

“We can certainly take heart from the second-half performance.”
