West Brom News: Moore sees sparks of revival

10 months ago

In the latest West Brom news, caretaker manager Darren Moore hopes their recent resurgence will help build bridges with the fans after a poor season.

The Baggies looked dead and buried after being cut adrift at the foot of the Premier League table but they are still in with an outside chance of surviving with one game to go.

It is out of their hands, however, as both Swansea City and Southampton have two games left to pick up the two points they require to send Albion down.

The departure of Alan Pardew as manager appeared to be the catalyst for the West Midlanders to spark into life and Moore has guided them to three wins and two draws in his five games in charge.

They pulled off a remarkable 1-0 victory over Tottenham at the Hawthorns on Saturday to keep their season alive, with Jake Livermore bagging the all-important goal.

It has been an amazing story for the club in a roller-coaster of a campaign and, regardless of which division they play in next term, Moore feels things are moving in the right direction.

“We’ve come together and there’s been some pride restored and the feelgood factor within the community and within the supporters,” he told reporters.

“I feel from the crowd there was an excellent energy in the football club. If it has restored that I’m really happy for the club, that’s all anyone would want so we’re really happy.”

Southampton face Swansea on Tuesday evening and a win for either side would relegate West Brom while a draw means that it will all go to the final match of the season.

Baggies’ fans will doubtless have one eye on that score line and the Swans are priced at 21/10 with bet365 to win the match, with Saints on offer at 11/8.
