Shan targets fourth Hawthorns win

Jimmy Shan hopes Albion can extend their good form at The Hawthorns to four successive wins when Hull City arrive in town on Friday (ko 3pm).

The Baggies have beaten Swansea, Birmingham and Preston since Shan took interim charge of first-team affairs in March.  

But Jimmy insists his side will need to be at their best to overcome the well-organised Tigers.  

“I’ve been delighted with our home form,” he admitted. “It’s something that you’re aware of but when you’re tackling games and moving on you don’t think too much of it. 

“It’s been good to build on that Swansea win. Hopefully the fans are going to the game expecting a good West Bromwich Albion performance. 

“Long may it continue that we’re delivering for our home fans and they are right behind us.”

He added: “Hull have had a very good season and they caused us problems in the first game up there. They have an organised way of playing and their front three in particular are a threat. 

“We’ve looked at them and we’re aware of their threats and how we can stop that, but also we’ve had a big focus on what we are and how we can hurt them and where we can exploit them. 

“They’ve had a fantastic journey this season, and they’ve put some fantastic results together.”
