Edwards ‘determined’ to return to winning ways

Kyle Edwards says there’s a “determination” within the group to return to winning ways in the Sky Bet Championship on Saturday.

The Baggies travel back down to The Valley for their second clash with Charlton in the space of six days, having won in the capital on Sunday in the Emirates FA Cup.

Albion have gone four games without a win in the league since the 3-2 triumph at Birmingham City in mid-December.

And Kyle admits the players have “missed” that special winning feeling and are eager to get it back against the Addicks.

He said: “We’re all looking forward to getting back to league action on Saturday.

“We’ve had lots of really difficult games over the Christmas period. It was tough physically to play as many games as we did but all the lads worked really hard and we’ve come away from that period in a really strong position in the league.

“We drew a few and we’re now all determined to start winning games again.

“There’s no better feeling in football than picking up three points and we’ve missed that in recent weeks. We want it back.

“It was good to get the win at Charlton in the FA Cup last weekend and we want the same outcome on Saturday.

“We know how difficult it is to win games in this division but we’re a confident group and we’ve shown plenty of times already this season that we are capable of playing some great football and getting victories.

“Charlton have been unfortunate lately with injuries and results but we know that it’s going to be a big challenge for us on Saturday down there.

“They’ll be just as desperate for the three points as we will be, especially as it’s a home game for them.”

Slaven Bilić’s side will be backed by 3,100 travelling Baggies on Saturday afternoon and Edwards wants to reward them with a positive performance and result.

“I’ve seen that we’ve sold out our allocation which is brilliant to hear. The supporters have been great this season.

“We’ve sold out for plenty of our away games and that shows that our fans are loyal and they enjoy watching us play.

“We’ve got to try and reward them on Saturday with a good performance and three points.”
