Glenn Murray believes Albion have surpassed their own expectations with their Premier League points haul.

But he has urged them to maintain the defensive security which took them to eighth place – and grab what they can at the other end.

Murray’s fourth goal in three games secured a 1-0 win at Swansea in a game of few chances.

He said: “We have done very well. We have got more points than we probably thought we would have.

“We have done it all while learning a lot about the league.

“A lot of the squad are new to the Premier League and it is a slightly different way of football compared to the Championship.

“In the Premier League, especially for the newly promoted clubs, it is about keeping your place.

“It’s a whole different ball game. It’s about, more than anything, keeping the back door shut and hoping we can pick points up like we did here – nick a goal and nick three points.

“In the last two years we have won a lot of games so this year was always going to be very different.

“But week in and week out we are picking points up and there is a good feeling about the place.”
