Carlos Corberán focused on constant improvement after Bristol City win

Carlos Corberán is interviewed after Albion's win against Bristol City

Carlos Corberán insists he is solely focused on the improvement of his team as the Baggies furthered their claim for a play-off place with a 2-0 win over Bristol City at The Hawthorns.

Tom Fellows and Jed Wallace scored either side of the interval as Albion extended their unbeaten run to six Sky Bet Championship fixtures.

But the boss refused to be drawn on play-off chatter, demanding his side continue to improve after they return from the international break for the final eight league fixtures.

He said: “I think we did enough good things on the pitch to win the three points – but at the same time there were moments that we have to try and manage better to not put the result we want to achieve at risk and to increase the difference with the opposing team. 

“There were good moments in attack, moments we need to manage better, some good moments in defence – but there are things that we need to better, too. 

"But we take the three points and the gap of improvement that we will keep on insisting. 

“The most important thing right now until the end of the season, is just to be focused on ourselves. 

“We know to achieve a play-off position is going to be a challenge, and there are still eight big games we are going to play, and we are looking forward to playing them too. 

“We need to keep improving everything we can improve to make us the best team we can be.

On today’s performance, Carlos added: “We arrived from one game against Huddersfield where they were very aggressive man-to-man and making a high press, and today we played a game where the opponent was totally different. 

“They defended deeper, which isn’t always easy to break if you don’t understand how to do it and it’s true in the first few minutes of the game, we didn’t have the right distances between us or find the right line of passes to progress. 

“In some moments, we have made mistakes we should avoid and in some we found the right solution with the goal we scored through Fellows. 

“The best minutes we played would be the first third of the second half when we managed the distances better and dominated the ball more, and after the second goal in transitions we had moments to increase the advantage.”
