Harry Redknapp insists we'll 'have to be at our best' to overcome in-form West Brom at the Lane on Saturday.

Roy Hodgson's arrival at the Hawthorns in place of Roberto Di Matteo in mid-February inspired a run of six matches unbeaten to lift the Baggies away from the relegation zone. They are now six points clear of 18th place.

That run included a win against Hodgson's former club Liverpool and a draw against Arsenal and Hodgson only suffered his first defeat at home to Chelsea last weekend.

"Roy did a great job at Fulham and Roberto Di Matteo also did a great job at West Brom, he was unlucky," said Harry.

"But Roy has done a fantastic job there and we all knew he would. He didn't have anything to prove.

"I think West Brom are out ot trouble now. I don't see them being in it and this will be a tough game.

"West Brom are in good form and they have been playing well. It will be difficult."

Wednesday night's thrilling 3-3 draw against Arsenal extended our recent run to one defeat in the last 11 league matches stretching back to January.

We've still lost at home just once in the league all season and victory on Saturday would lift us above Manchester City into fourth. City travel to Blackburn on Monday night.
