Keeping focus in the last 10 minutes

Make sure you're switched on during the dying moments of the game with advice from West Bromwich Albion's peak performance coach, Tom Bates

The last 10 minutes of a game sorts the weak from the strong. The winners from the losers. The ones who can handle the pressure from the ones who can't.

Until the referee blows the final whistle, anything is possible - an improbable comeback or a courageous defence.

More after the break

What can you do to stay switched on until the last kick of the game? Rather than retreating, rise to the occasion with advice from West Brom's peak performance coach, Tom Bates.

Tom Bates will be appearing at the Science + Football Conference on Wednesday, April 30 at the London Soccer Dome. For more information visit
