Improved defence boosts Albion - Olsson

10 March 2011 01:30
Defender Jonas Olsson believes West Brom have the quality to survive in the Barclays Premier League now they have stopped leaking goals since the arrival of Roy Hodgson. Albion were conceding an average of more than two goals a game in the period before Hodgson replaced sacked coach Roberto Di Matteo. But they have let in only three in as many matches under Hodgson and collected five points in that spell to move out of the bottom three. "We have looked more solid in the last few games and have been working a lot on our shape and organisation as a unit," said Olsson. "I think that has shown in the last two or three games. "It can, of course, be better and we still want that clean sheet that we have been struggling for - but we are getting closer to it. "If we can just stay in the games and build from a solid defence, we have a great chance of staying up."
