Slaven Bilic believes he has much to build on following today’s dour 0-0 draw at West Brom.
The boss made it four points from the last six in a low quality affair but was looking very much on the bright side following the game.
He said: “We played solidly and limited them to one chance. In the second half we played more dominant football.
“Two clean sheets in two games is important progress. I am not extremely delighted but there are a lot of positives to build on.”
Meanwhile West Brom boss Tony Pulis said: “We only had a couple of clear-cut chances, just two opportunities in the match against a good West Ham side.
“But we got a clean sheet and the players gave it everything, we just need a bit more quality in the final third. We take a point and move on.”
