With relegation confirmed for West Bromwich Albion this season, caretaker gaffer Darren Moore has said he’s looking for the club to go out on a high and hopefully take victory over Crystal Palace this weekend.
???? “It’s very, very important we finish the season on a high."
Darren delivers his final press conference of the campaign…

Going into the curtain closer against Roy Hodgson’s side at Selhurst Park, we already know we are set for life in the Championship next season despite the unbeaten run of form under Moore since he came through the door as Alan Pardew’s replacement – but despite extending hopes and almost taking survival to the last day, our fate was sealed earlier this week.
Moore’s achievements though speak for themselves, unbeaten in five, the restoration of some pride and victories over Manchester United, Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur to boot.
Hopefully, he can add another win to his column this weekend and send him out on a real high – although fans naturally want him to be our permanent appointment moving forward.
Speaking to wba.co.uk as he met with the media to preview the game, Moore knew it was important to end the season with another good performance to give us some added momentum going into next year.
“It’s been that way in recent weeks and we’ve got some wonderful results against some really good football clubs. All five games have been excellent results and we continue to work on extending that. We need to keep that mentality going in the football club.”
He knew obviously that making it six unbeaten, especially with another win, would be the perfect way to close out an extremely difficult season for us and he again praised the players for their efforts in training this week as they prepare for the game.
Your fight in the relegation battle will always be remembered guys. Come back stronger than ever best of luck guys????????
