James Morrison has urged West Brom to carry the confidence from Saturday's win into their tough run of upcoming fixtures.
Morrison was on target for the Baggies as they secured a 3-1 victory at Birmingham to land a much-needed three points and take a step closer to Premier League survival.
And with clashes against Arsenal, Liverpool, Sunderland and Chelsea looming, man-of-the-match Morrison feels the victory could not have come at a better time.
"I'm delighted that I scored, delighted it was with my left foot and delighted that we got three points," Morrison told Sky Sports HD2.
"Arsenal's a tough game but we showed that fighting spirit today and if we take it into next week's game there's no reason why we can't beat Arsenal."
He added: "We knew that Birmingham were around us (in the table) and that's what counts for survival, if we beat the teams around us. So we did a really good job.
"The lads were up for it and it showed on the pitch today."
Birmingham's goal, scored by Jean Beausejour, came barely 60 seconds after West Brom's opener.
And Paul Scharner, who sealed Albion's win with a 72nd-minute strike, conceded: "It looks like we lost a bit of concentration but we came back and won 3-1.
"We tried everything. Congratulations to the whole team who fought to the end. We deserved to win."
