BOSS Chris Hughton has demanded no let-up from his players as Albion go title hunting at his old club Norwich tonight.
He had them running when they reported back to training on Wednesday after their Premier League promotion celebrations.
And he believes they will maintain their high level in search of the win needed from the last three games to go up as champions, starting at Carrow Road (7.45pm).
Hughton said: “We have achieved what we wanted to achieve but, if I’m looking at the standards these players have set, I would be very surprised if they showed anything different in these last three games – and I’d be very disappointed if we showed anything different.
“This is another challenge for them. We are going to have bigger and tougher challenges next season.”
Wing ace Anthony Knockaert was part of the Leicester team thumped 4-1 at home by Albion in the game after they clinched promotion three years ago before they reasserted to romp the league.

Knockaert and his team-mates got straight back down to business under Hughton 48 hours ago in a bid to prevent their five-match winning streak from faltering and to seal the title with two games to spare.
Captain Bruno told The Argus: “We had a running session. It’s easier. The legs fly when you are happy. It’s easier to come back to training after this achievement.
“It’s going to be a tough game. They are playing well now, getting a few good results and they’ve got real quality, very good players. They smashed Reading (7-1). If they have a good day and you have a really bad day, we need to be aware of that and take the game really seriously.
“Of course, it’s tough. The main aim is done but now we have to refocus again and try to win this title.
“We know how important it is for us, the club and for everyone. They are three massive games for us and we’ll try to do our best.”
