Wins over Luton Town and Blackburn Rovers followed alongside draws with Reading and Derby County.
Summer signing and centre-back Semi Ajayi earned the Baggies a point in their last outing against Fulham.
The Club currently sits sixth in the Sky Bet Championship table with 13 points from seven games.
