DARREN Moore was quick to praise the travelling Albion fans following Saturday’s 1-0 triumph over Newcastle United in the north east.
Over 1,200 Baggies made the 424-mile round trip to St. James’ Park to see Matt Phillips fire Albion to victory and extend their unbeaten run to four games.
Moore said: “We are grateful to all the fans who travelled all the way up here to support the team.
“It’s a huge arena but we heard them up there singing their hearts out.
“Together as a football club, I am proud that we have all been able to pull off another positive result for the football club.
“It’s another good performance. It’s a difficult place to come and Newcastle are a good team.
“We showed composure, courage and strength in unity which is all the things we needed.
“If anything, we could’ve been two or three goals up at the break.
“I was delighted with the first half and it was more or less keep going for the second period.
“We had to be willing to stand up to the Newcastle pressure which we knew would be coming.
“Everyone did exactly that.
“There was some good resolute defending and the players got their reward for a wonderful performance.”
