Mel: Cardiff clash is a must-win game

West Brom manager Pepe Mel is refusing to contemplate anything other than victory over Cardiff as his side try to move out of Barclays Premier League relegation danger.

We need the spirit we had against Swansea.

We've been conceding too many early goals. We need that extra effort against Cardiff.

This (relegation) is not a situation that comes into my head. I am far more optimistic.

For us there is only one game. Cardiff is the 'final'. The only thing that will do for us is a victory.

– West Brom head coach Pepe Mel

Bruce praises strikers after West Brom win

Hull boss Steve Bruce paid tribute to the influence of Shane Long on his side's Barclays Premier League survival fight as the striker came back to haunt his former club at the KC Stadium.

Bruce said:

The two strikers came in at just the right time and have given the whole club a boost.

We didn't play well today by any stretch of the imagination but if you have got that bit of quality at the top end of the pitch they can create something and they will always be a handful with the attitude they've got.

– Hull City manager Steve Bruce
