Darren delight at 'phenomenal' Dwight

22 December 2018

DARREN Moore hailed an outstanding Dwight Gayle display after he netted his first Albion hat-trick at Rotherham.

Dwight struck three of the Baggies' four goals at New York Stadium to secure a fourth consecutive away triumph - and leave the gaffer purring.

"Dwight's popped up with three goals - a great contribution," Darren said.

"His performance was excellent and testament to him.

"He'll be the first to say it's his team-mates helping him get the goals but you still have to be on the end of them.

"His enthusiasm, his energy, his work-rate. It's all phenomenal."

Dwight's first, just six minutes into the encounter, set the tone for a dominant performance on the road.

All part of the plan, says the gaffer.

He added: "We thought an early goal could take away some of the momentum Rotherham have had here.

"Their home record is good. They put teams on the back foot.

"It was an emphatic win and a continuation of our performances and consistency.

"Not many teams will come here and get a result in the manner we have.

"We'll evaluate this and then turn our attention to Boxing Day."
