After climbing as high as third in the Premier League, the Baggies recently slipped off the pace with a four-game winless streak, starting with defeat at Swansea late last month.

However, Clarke's men have since recovered with successive triumphs over Norwich and QPR to move back up to sixth in the standings.

Olsson feels the manager's calm manner has been crucial to getting Albion back on track.
