Jim Sticking to His Style of Football

Boss Jim Magilton has vowed not to change the way his side plays football after the Blues lost out to the more brutal footballing style of Watford at the weekend.
Magilton told the club site: "There are many ways to win a football match and Watford proved on Saturday how good they are at what they do.
"Managers have their own way of playing and, if it's successful and the players buy into it, then that is a recipe for going forward.
"I have my own way of playing the game. To play a brand of football that I like and that I will always stand up for and that will never change.
"It's backed by the coaching staff and the players here, but on Saturday we didn't perform in the manner we have done at home this season.
"It's a learning curve for us all but I do want to see us be quicker on the ball and have more quality with it.
"That's the aim and if we can do that, it doesn't matter how physical a team is with you. You don't have to match brawn with brawn, you have to be cleverer than the opposition.
"Against Watford we did not have enough belief in our play, we didn't get enough players on the ball and fair play to Watford for that, but we will dust ourselves down and relish the opportunity of putting it right against Crystal Palace."
Meanwhile, former Town skipper and coach Tony Mowbray has signed a new deal which will keep him in his role as manager at West Brom until 2011. His assistant, another former Blue Mark Venus, has also signed an extension to his contract at the Hawthorns.
