Newcastle defender Fabricio Coloccini hopes the side will give their all for absent manager Joe Kinnear.
The Magpies manager is to undergo triple heart bypass surgery which will keep him away from the club for at least two months.
But the Argentine centre-back was inspired by Kinnear's admission to hospital last weekend and hopes Newcastle can carry the momentum into the season's crucial run-in.
"Beating West Brom was also important because we wanted to win for Joe Kinnear," Coloccini said.
"When somebody is out of action like that, you need to show that you remember them, and winning is our way of doing that."
The 27-year-old believes that Newcastle can use the result to turn their season around and hopes the fighting spirit they showed at the Hawthorns will propel them to Premier League safety.
"Hopefully we will look back on that day at the end of the season and feel it was the turning point," he added.
"The other good thing is that we have had a break before the next game, so we can think about the errors we made as well.
"We know what wasn't good about the game and now we can train harder.
"We showed fight against West Brom. There were lots of goals, but we managed to emerge as the winners. Beating West Brom was very important for us.
"They are down there with us and we had to put some daylight between us. This can give us something to build on and we can now look forward."
