West Brom manager Steve Clarke is not setting his sights too high after his side’s 2-0 home win against Southampton moved them up to fifth place in the Premier League.
Clarke told Sky Sports: “It has been a good start but it is not for me to take any credit as the players have been fantastic.
“We will focus on the primary objective to ensure that we stay in the Premier League and that is always the first target.
“Although we’ve made a good start we need to build on that.”
Clarke felt that his side needed the cushion of a two-goal lead as the struggling Saints made a concerted effort to get back on terms after the interval.
“The timing of the second goal came at the right time because Southampton were just starting to get a foothold in the game,” he added.
