The Baggies have already seen 12 different players score in the Championship this season, despite having only played 11 league games.

Austin, a summer capture from Southampton, is the man most supporters are looking to for goals with the 30-year-old having found the target 152 times in his career.

But as well as being confident in his own ability, Austin also has complete faith in his team mates to continue getting on the score sheet.

"We're top of the table, we know what we have and we know what we have got in the changing room," Austin said.

"It’s going to be an exciting season.

"We’ve got to be patient. We know we are going to have games where it is not going to go for us but we will have plenty where it will and I truly believe in every one in that changing room.

"We’ve got goals all over the pitch. Even our full-backs are scoring.

"That’s going to happen for the rest of the season, for sure. The goals will be all around the team.


"For West Brom fans it will be an exciting season. Stay patient, don't get too carried away but I’m sure we will fine."

Albion have played some breathtaking football this season in Slaven Bilic's 4-2-3-1 formation with winger Grady Diangana and number 10 Matheus Pereira dominating the headlines.

Matt Phillips completes the trio behind the striker. And Austin thinks his performances have gone a little bit under the radar this season.

"Grady and Matheus are fantastic players," the striker continued.


"They are only young. We’ve got a good mixture throughout our team, players who are not even in the squad still to come in.

"But Matty offers so much for us. Matheus and Grady are getting praise because they are new whereas Matty has been here for three, four years.

"He is a fantastic player. He will be key for us as well – not just those two.

"He creates so many goals and he’s got three or four already and he is a wide man."
