Pepe Mel: Yet to win during his time at

Albion are winless since the Spaniard succeeded Steve Clarke at the Hawthorns and lie just a point above the Barclays Premier League's relegation zone.

That has led to meetings behind the scenes but the club stressed a change at the top is not on the agenda.

Sporting and technical director Richard Garlick said in a statement on the club's website: "At present, we are going through a period of transition, which is natural following the appointment of a new head coach.

"There is also a lot of frustration at our league position and run of form. I would be more concerned if there wasn't.

"Various meetings have been held within the football department over the past few days to discuss our current situation and what needs to be done to improve results in our final 11 games.

"The discussions have proved constructive. There has been a lot of soul-searching and it is clear everyone has a real hunger and desire to keep the club in the Premier League.

"Pepe, the coaching staff and players will now do everything in their power to achieve this common goal."
