Tony Pulis was pleased by West Brom’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea on Wednesday night but will not settle until they reach their 40-point target.
West Brom remain 13th in the Premier League, three points clear of Chelsea, after goals from Craig Gardner and James McClean at Stamford Bridge.
However, while Hiddink said afterwards he had still not given up hope of a top-four finish, Pulis is focused on merely leading Albion to safety.
“Now we need another 13 points to get to 40,” Pulis said. “But it’s such a relentless league, every game is tough.
“We have tremendous respect for Chelsea, but I felt we could do certain things to get something out of the game.
“So I’m very pleased we have got something out of it because the lads worked hard as a team and as a group to take something out of the game.”
