Albion star Youssouf Mulumbu today insisted he will not tone down his tackling despite closing in on an early-season Premier League suspension.
The Baggies midfielder is just two yellow cards away from a ban after being booked three times in the opening seven games of the season.
He will now face a one-match ban if he picks up two more cautions before December 31.
But the DR Congo international said: “I like to win the ball properly and I won’t change my game.
“That’s the game that put me at West Brom. And I think me and Claudio Yacob are working really well at the moment and we don’t take a step back to avoid yellows.
“We’ve got a big squad and if either of us are suspended for one game, James Morrison, Graham Dorrans or Chris Brunt can take our place.
“I’m not worried about that. I just want to play my game, enjoy it and win some points.
“Against Sunderland I got a stupid yellow card for a hand ball or moaning at the referee.
“So I think I can avoid some of the yellow cards – but I’m not the sort of player who is aggressive and has bad intentions when I try to win the ball.”
The Baggies are now unbeaten in four league games after a slow start to the season with a win at Manchester United and a home draw against Arsenal restoring confidence among fans.
But Mulumbu has warned they cannot allow the new-found momentum to be lost.
“The international break will probably have helped those players who felt a little bit of fatigue,” he added.
“But I would have preferred it not to come because we were in a good period.”
