West Brom News: Baggies feeling confident – Brunt

9 months ago

In the latest West Brom news, Chris Brunt claims the squad are feeling much more confident under interim boss Darren Moore.

The Baggies appointed Moore on a temporary basis after parting company with Alan Pardew on April 2 with the club looking destined for the drop, still priced at 1/200 with Bet365 to go down.

However, Moore has provided hope of survival and they are yet to have relegation confirmed after going four games unbeaten under his tutelage.

West Brom have won away at Manchester United and Newcastle, while they have drawn against Swansea and Liverpool with Moore at the helm.

They need to win all three of their remaining games and hope for other results to go their way in order to complete what would be the greatest of escapes.

Brunt admits that Saturday’s home clash with Tottenham will prove tough but feels their new found momentum could help them to claim another surprise result.

“The last few weeks have been pretty good,” Brunt said.

“Momentum is everything in football and for long periods this season, we just haven’t had any.

“But at the moment, we have got a bit of confidence back and we’ve been working hard this week on what we want to do to try to beat Spurs.

“With the squad we’ve got, ‘Mooro’ hasn’t made too many changes and obviously things don’t look great – but at least we’ve given ourselves a tiny chance.

“People had us written off a few weeks ago but to still be in with a shout with a couple of games to go is a credit to him and all the staff.

“When it’s out of your hands you’re just hoping and praying things go your way.

“We’ve got the ‘easy’ task of beating Spurs as well. Everything is against you but we can only effect what we can do.”
