'Entertaining' Albion not the finished article - Moore

DARREN Moore says he is “delighted” with his side’s 4-3 victory at Norwich City but admits his side still have work to do.

The Baggies left Carrow Road with all three points courtesy of goals from Harvey Barnes, Hal Robson-Kanu and a Jay Rodriguez brace - but it was an all-important penalty by Sam Johnstone on which the game swung.

The former Manchester United stopper took Albion into the interval with the score at 1-1 after denying Jordan Rhodes a second from 12 yards.

And Moore insists there are positives and negatives to be taken from an entertaining afternoon in East Anglia. 

“If there’s one word that describes that game then it was a bit ‘crazy’ - a goal-filled afternoon," he said. 

“It was a good entertaining game. We came here to win and we got the win.

“There was lots for us to pick out of it - both for and against - so there’s things for us to work on.

“There’s lots of work to be done - and we are doing that work - but while we’re doing it we still need to get results. 

“When you start a new campaign you want a win on the board and the win has come for us today.

“This is a difficult place to come - for our third game in seven days - so it’s testament to the players the way they went about it. To get the three points is very rewarding.

“We haven’t scored four goals in a match in a very long time so it showed our intent. We’ve got some wonderful players who have the ability to score goals. We have a real cutting edge and I think we showed that today.”
