James Ward-Prowse has stressed the importance of Saturday’s visit to the Hawthorns to take on West Bromwich Albion.

Saints currently sit seven points behind the Baggies with two games in hand, though only one place separate the two teams in the Premier League table.

And Ward-Prowse knows that a victory on Saturday could push Saints well on their way to catching Tony Pulis’ side.

“They are the people we are chasing at the minute,” explained the 22-year-old.

“So it’s a great opportunity for us to go there and pick up three points and cap off a good week for us.

“We were disappointed not to pick up three points against Bournemouth, but we showed great character midweek to come back and get the win.”

Ward-Prowse completed the scoring against Crystal Palace on Wednesday night, as Saints fought back to seal three valuable points at St Mary’s.

Though the Academy graduate was focused more on the impact the win could have in the final run of fixtures, rather than his individual contribution.

“The performance and win was massive for us,”

“We knew it was an important game to win and we can take confidence from that going to West Brom this weekend.

“Everybody knows what Tony Pulis and West Brom are about, so we have to make sure we are clinical in front of goal and again show our qualities.”
