Official WBA statement
ALBION can confirm they are making progress in the appointment of a new Head Coach.
Sporting & Technical Director Richard Garlick said: “We have identified suitable candidates to work within our existing structure.
“This is a confidential process and it is inevitable there will be speculation about whom may be under consideration.
“We are now progressing through the interview and short-listing stage. We plan to make an appointment at the earliest opportunity but our primary concern is recruiting the most suitable individual.
“We are grateful for the professional manner in which Keith Downing, the coaching staff and the players have approached the last two games.
“Keith remains in charge for tomorrow’s game at West Ham United and until an appointment has been made.”
