Boaz Myhill is happy to avoid the attention

Sport | Published:

Keeper Boaz Myhill today insisted Albion are happy to fly under the radar as they gear up for Saturday's clash with title-chasing Chelsea.

The Baggies will enter Saturday's Hawthorns game in fifth place in the Premier League after a stunning start to the Steve Clarke era.

Yet the Blues are likely to start the game as favourites when former Hawthorns head coach Roberto Di Matteo makes his first managerial return to his old club.

And Myhill, who is expected to deputise again for injured No.1 Ben Foster, says the Baggies are happy for Chelsea to get all the attention.

"The rest of the country can expect what they want," said the Wales international.

"We will prepare for the game as we've done all season.

"We've got no airs and graces at this club. We just want to work hard and show what we can do."

And Myhill insisted the Baggies' impressive opening to Clarke's reign will not breed complacency at The Hawthorns.

"The minute you start looking ahead of yourselves you take your eye off the ball," he said.
