Adam Webster rises high against Manchester City.

Adam Webster is confident Albion have the quality at their disposal to start climbing the table.

Performances have warranted more points according to the 26-year-old, but he knows there are a few areas for improvement.

“We definitely should have more points on the board. There's been quite a few games where we've dominated and should have taken all three points and we’ve only drawn.

“Even a couple of the losses that we've had, we should definitely have got something from. So that's disappointing from our point of view.

“But we know how well we've been playing throughout the season. Performances have been good, we've just got to try and maintain that and cut out the mistakes and see out games better.

“We're confident with the ability we have in our team that we can pull away from danger. There are tough games coming up, but there's a long way to go and we'll be fighting for every point.”

Webster hasn't missed a minute of Premier League action for Albion so far this term, playing a majority of his football as part of a back three alongside Lewis Dunk and Ben White.

“We work well together, the system suits us. It's been easy to play alongside them as they're very good players and we're all making each other better.

“We want to bring the ball out from the back to start off the attack, that's a big part of how we play and what we're good at. We stick to our strengths, but we've got to do the basics well and at times this season we’ve not done the basics well.

“It can be about getting back to basics, we're doing that now and it works well for us.”

Albion head to Leeds on Saturday for the first Premier League meeting between the clubs. “They like to play and so do we so it should be a good game but we'd settle for a scrappy match as long as we come away with the three points.”
