It’s turned into another unlikely Bank Holiday weekend for West Bromwich Albion fans.

Caretaker manager Darren Moore’s run of luck keeps us on the cusp of survival given the results we have dug out since he replaced Alan Pardew in the hot seat and all three points from Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend was another of those results in particular as few would’ve tipped us for victory.

Jake Livermore’s effort two minutes into full-time stoppage time returned that win and survival hopes continue to be alive for the club until at least tonight’s outcome in the tie between Swansea City and Southampton.

It is of course completely out of our hands now, we have done as much as we could from a position where we were largely dead and buried, but a renewed fight means we at least take it as close to the line as we possibly can do.

That in itself wasn’t even on the cards a month ago, so again Moore and his backroom setup (and the players) take praise for that.

Reflecting on victory over Spurs, the already club legend told wba.co.uk.

“The place was electric today. We thank the fans. They were our twelfth man today. We’ve come together as a group and we’re just working. The hard work is paying off. We’ll just move on to next week’s game. We can’t do anything about what happens elsewhere. It’s another good three points for us. It was a really good performance by the boys. They gave everything today.”

Moore went on to say that the performance and result was a testament to the way the players have taken to his words about commitment, desire and courage and he again praised them for their efforts since he first walked through the door as he knows, he can’t ask more of them.

Under him, no. Prior to his arrival plenty could be asked and that’s the frustration that remains should we now go down.

All eyes to tonight’s fixture and we see if the dream continues for another match day or not. Fans remain resolute on who should be given the job ahead of next season, regardless of what now happens.
