West Bromwich Albion's Gareth Barry
West Bromwich Albion's star midfielder Gareth Barry wants his side to rediscover their December form when Norwich City visit The Hawthorns this weekend.

The midfielder, who has started five of the Baggies’ last six league matches, was named Coral’s Player of the Month for a string of superb showings towards the end of 2018.

And Gareth hopes Saturday’s home clash against the Canaries will kickstart another unbeaten run that will keep them firmly in the hunt for English Football League (EFL) Championship promotion, with defeat to Blackburn Rovers last time out ending an impressive run of nine matches unbeaten.

“It’s always nice to be recognised for performances, but it’s even better when the team is winning on the back of them,” Barry said.

“You’re going to need runs like the one in December if you want to finish in the top two positions. We’ll need two or three of those sorts of runs throughout the campaign.

“After our last game in the league we need to bounce back and try and start another run like it. It’s going to be important to start that at the weekend straight away.”

Barry has made 15 appearances in the Championship this season - netting once in the process.
