Chadli keen to extend winning feeling

Baggies face Boro at the Riverside on Tuesday (ko 7.45pm)

NACER Chadli is determined to help Albion continue their winning run at Middlesbrough on Tuesday - and also get back on the goal trail himself.

The Baggies returned to winnings ways against Sunderland last weekend, that coming after defeat at Spurs ended a sequence of back-to-back Premier League wins.

Three victories in the last four matches has kept Albion eighth in the table. 

And they head to the Riverside Stadium on Tuesday (ko 7.45pm) targeting their 10th league success of the campaign.

Chadli said: "I thought we played well against Sunderland, always well organised and good on the counter-attack.

"We created a lot of chances and we need to keep doing that against Middlesbrough."

Chadli found the net four times in his first five games for Albion before injury ruled ruled him out for a month.

He is yet to find the net since making his comeback but came desperately close against the Black Cats, hitting the woodwork from close range before Chris Brunt drilled home the rebound.

And the attacking midfielder is desperate to get back among the goals as soon as possible.

"I was really unlucky (against Sunderland) but Brunty scored straight after so it was okay for me," he added.

"Hopefully I can score in the game against Middlesbrough."

Chadli, 27, prepares to come up against Boro in midweek for the first time in his professional career.

Albion also make their first trip to the Riverside since a 5-0 triumph in the Championship in September 2009.

They will do so on the back on a 10-day break since their 2-0 win over north-east neighbours Sunderland at The Hawthorns.

Asked whether that helps aid rest and recovery within the squad, Chadli said: "I think it's different, the more we play the more I like it. 

"It's about games, really. Players need to play games.

"Ten days' rest might be good, but it's also long for the group."
