Di Matteo sees work ahead

West Brom manager Roberto Di Matteo insists his side have some way to go until they are ready for a promotion tilt this term after they battled back from two goals down to clinch a friendly draw with Walsall. Second half strikes from Luke Moore and Craig Beattie secured an entertaining 2-2 draw at the Banks's Stadium, and Di Matteo believes his side will be wiser for the experience. He told the Sunday Mercury: "It was an interesting game - it was good to learn certain things. You can learn a lot from games like this. We have a lot of work ahead of us. I learned a few things about a few players in certain positions so we still have a lot to do. "It's pre-season so we are having to work a lot in between games. You can see the demands and physicality we will encounter in the Championship. We have to learn to deal with that."
