Jermaine Pennant says confidence is still high in the Stoke squad going into this weekend's clash with West Brom.
The Potters go into the game on the back of three straight defeats that has resulted in them slipping to 16th in the table, but Pennant says no-one in the Stoke dressing room is starting to panic.
"We made a great start after the first few games and everybody is still happy," Pennant revealed.
"We are playing some good football and we have kind of dominated possession. We have not only played good football, we have created chances and not just sat back.
"We have had a couple of dips in the last couple of games, which is unfortunate, and maybe there has been bit of nervousness."
The Baggies go into the game on a high after winning away at Manchester United before picking up a point against Arsenal, but Pennant says the international break could have come at just the right time.
"They've had some great results and so they are going to come here on a high," he added. "But I'm hoping the international break has put a little block on their momentum and that we can make our own momentum.
"Come Saturday, hopefully we will be fresh and wanting to get started again."
