Football - Gera - Baggies buoyed by weekend win

Zoltan Gera hopes West Brom can reap the benefits of being in a more relaxed frame of mind after ending their mini slump when they visit QPR on Boxing Day.

Midfielder Gera scored Albion's opening goal in their 2-1 weekend home win over Norwich - their first in five games after climbing at one stage to third spot in the Barclays Premier League.

The Hungary international knows questions were starting to be asked of Steve Clarke's side but is hopeful they can now regain momentum and sustain a push for a top-six spot.

Gera said: "We lost three games in a row, then drew against West Ham, and finally we've won.

"If you're losing games or drawing then people will ask questions, but that's normal.

"In every team, every single side, there will be frustrating times. Hopefully that's in the past now.

"Maybe we can relax a bit now - and maybe we can win more games.

"We have lost to good teams in recent weeks but we feel much better after winning. We have 30 points and we just want to win more games."
