Albion's players have been told to make amends for the record defeat at the Amex after a frank meeting about the Bournemouth debacle.

Boss Chris Hughton held a meeting with his players on Sunday, which included a video nasty of the 5-0 defeat by the Cherries the day before.

They get the chance to put things right - and virtually secure safety - against relegation rivals Cardiff at the Amex tonight.

Hughton said: "The meeting was about going through the game, going through the goals that we conceded, where we should have done better. Input from the players.

"So that tends to be a more constructive one, simply because you've really been able to analyse the game and you are able to come away from the emotions straight after the game.

"I wouldn't say it was a calm meeting because it's about opinions. But you have to come out from that meeting knowing exactly what we should have done.

"When you lose 1-0, you look at it more in general, but when you lose by five you are very much going through the goals and areas in the game where we didn’t do well enough.

"So I don't know about calm but most importantly it has to be constructive and the end product has to be a team and a group of staff knowing where we went wrong on the day.

"That's the balance between after a game where it is always far more emotional and the next day where you've been able to analyse and assess it.

"The dynamic is that we were well beaten in a hugely disappointing performance. And sometimes the difference between getting beat big can put more emphasis on what the players need to do.

"Sometimes that can be that we need a bigger reaction because we were that bad on Saturday that we have no choice but to be a lot better.

"If the margins perhaps are closer, you go into that (Cardiff) game thinking that maybe there wasn't too much wrong. There was a lot wrong, and they will have to make amends for it."

Albion go to Wolves on Saturday, visit Spurs three days later, then end April at home to Newcastle.

They visit Arsenal for their penultimate fixture and entertain quadruple-chasing Manchester City on the final Sunday.

Cardiff, five points adrift with a game fewer to play and a far inferior goal difference, are at home to Man City's title rivals Liverpool on Sunday.

They also have to play Fulham away, Crystal Palace at home and Manchester United away.
