West Brom defender Jonny Evans hopes the 1-1 draw against Tottenham can act as a springboard for the team ahead of back-to-back home games.
Salomon Rondon put the Baggies ahead after just four minutes at Wembley before Harry Kane scored his 40th goal of the year to salvage a point for Spurs.
Gary Megson, who took charge for the first time as interim manager, was delighted with the side's performance which leaves them one place above the bottom three with 11 points from 13 games.
Significantly, West Brom now have two homes to look forward to - starting with Newcastle on Tuesday followed by Crystal Palace on Saturday - and Evans believes they can take advantage.
"It's a big week and there's a quick turnaround now ahead of the Newcastle game, but I think that will suit us," he said. The players will take confidence going into these two home games.
"We will look forward to them and hopefully we will be able to get two positive results."
West Brom will take heart from Newcastle's 3-0 defeat at home to Watford on Saturday while Crystal Palace remain bottom of the table despite beating Stoke 2-1 at Selhurst Park.
