Zoltan Gera hopes West Brom can reap the benefits of being in a more relaxed frame of mind after ending their mini slump when they visit QPR on Boxing Day.
Midfielder Gera scored Albion's opening goal in their 2-1 weekend home win over Norwich - their first in five games after climbing at one stage to third spot in the Barclays Premier League.
Gera said: "We lost three games in a row, then drew against West Ham, and finally we've won. If you're losing games or drawing then people will ask questions, but that's normal. In every team, every single side, there will be frustrating times. Hopefully that's in the past now."
