Megson: Let's focus on us

GARY Megson wants Albion to focus on their own game as they welcome Newcastle United to The Hawthorns on Tuesday (ko 8pm).

Megson addressed national and local media on Monday morning and indicated his side would not be thinking too much about the Magpies ahead of the crucial clash.

"From our own point of view, we go into it not thinking about Newcastle - good team, great manager, fantastic football club - we set that aside and then we try to pick up where we left off at Wembley against Tottenham.

"There were a lot of things that we can be pleased about but in isolation that would be no good.

"We've got to use that now and keep doing it. We know people can do it and they need to do it all the time.

"The fact is, I won't look any further than the Newcastle game and neither will the players. But it's an opportunity because we've just played well and got a good point.

"Now we're at home and hopefully we can play as well as that and convert one point into three."
