While bitterly disappointed at seeing his side surrender a two-goal lead against Watford at the weekend, the head coach believes the Baggies are on the cusp of showing real improvement.

Many supporters voiced their anger after Watford’s late equaliser at The Hawthorns on Saturday but Pulis believes a little time and adding the likes of Nacer Chadli and Oliver Burke to the mix will pay off after the international break.

“There’s signs that something’s boiling,” said Pulis.

“We’ve just got to be patient with it. We’ve got Burke back now after the international break and hopefully Chadli will play some time and that will give us the opportunity to add them to the group.

“Hopefully by the time the window’s over we’ll have Chadli and Burke available which again should help us.”

And despite many supporters lambasting his tactics of trying to shut up shop against Watford, Pulis insisted there were positives to draw, despite losing two points at the death.

“We played well at times,” added the boss.

“We had patches in the game where we played really well, the important thing is getting those patches together so we play well through the game.

“The disappointing thing is we weren’t set up strong enough, we were very loose.”
