Skipper Darren Fletcher has been speaking about FA Cup progression and the relegation battle that West Brom are beginning to find themselves in.

With tickets now on sale for the fifth round tie against Reading following our eventual victory over Peterborough at the fourth round stage in midweek, Fletcher said that the backing of the fans would again be key when we make the trip to the Madejski Stadium on February 20.

Speaking to wba.co.uk he explained.

‘It’s a real tough game. A home tie is probably the most important thing but we’ve got to go to Reading and we’ll probably be favourites as the Premier League team. But as you saw at Peterborough it will probably be very difficult. Our character cannot be questioned though. It’s a big factor in any team and we’ve got that in abundance. That’s coming through now and we’ll stick together. There’s plenty more games to go and we’re in a position where you look to the bottom but we’re so many points from teams above us as well. We’ve got to stay positive, keep that level head and go again for a massive game at the weekend.’

The Birmingham Mail have him talking about our current run of league form as well and the skipper insisted everybody was looking up the table not down, despite results.

‘You can look at it both ways. We’re only four or five points from pushing for seventh or eighth. At the same time, we’re the same distance from the bottom three. We’ve got to stay positive, keep that level head and go again for a massive game at the weekend. It’s a big factor in any team and we’ve got that in abundance. That’s coming through now and we’ll stick together. There are plenty more games to go and we’re in a position where you look to the bottom but we’re so many points from teams above us as well.’
