Baggies boss Carlos Corberan insists its imperative his side bounce back from Saturday’s setback against Sheffield United with a win over Blackpool on Tuesday.

Corberan’s men face the Seasiders at The Hawthorns where they’ll be hoping to record their first Sky Bet Championship victory in four games and halt a run of three successive defeats.

And the boss believes he has a group of players which is determined to deliver the “happiness of positive results” to the club’s supporters once again after a really disappointing start to the campaign.

Carlos said: “It’s really important for us to bounce back on Tuesday night and that’s why we are really focused on the game against Blackpool.

“Immediately after we finished on Saturday, we started preparing for Blackpool and turned our attention to that particular game.

“We have to compete in the best way that we possibly can to give ourselves the best chance of winning.

“Every time you play a game there are two things which you look for. The points and the win, which obviously we didn’t get on Saturday. 

“The other is performances which are either encouraging, or give us the possibility to fix or correct the things that we didn’t do. You can also pick out certain things which you did well in a match and build on them.

“After each game, we analyse our performances with the staff and the players. We identify areas which we need improvement in and also areas where we know we’ve done well and how we can makes our strengths stronger.

“From what I have seen in my first week here, I have a group of players with a high level of commitment to move away from this situation we find ourselves in.

“What I have in front of me is every player having full commitment to change our momentum and give the happiness of positive results to the fans, to the club and to themselves.

“We need the fans to feel as though they are part of this team and with the team. We have to create a level of togetherness which helps us win matches.”

Blackpool arrive having won two on the spin against Preston North End and Coventry City. 

Corberan added: “I always expect tough games in this division and Blackpool will be no different. It doesn’t matter whether you play against teams who are doing well or teams who haven’t got as many positive results as they would’ve wanted. 

“That’s why I think it’s one of the best leagues in the world.

“We have to show our identity, but we also must be aware of the situations which may happen.

“We have to be ready to face every type of scenario which teams in the Championship throw at us.”
