JONNY Evans says his team-mates owe it to the Club’s fans to keep fighting until the end of the season.
Albion have just seven games remaining to mount a Premier League survival challenge.
And the Baggies skipper - speaking while on international duty with Northern Ireland - has revealed emotions ran high following Saturday’s defeat at AFC Bournemouth.
“I think there is hope,” said Evans.
“Even after the Bournemouth game there was real disappointment in the changing room. It’s not like we have got to the point where we have accepted relegation.
“A lot of people have been writing us off. I understand with the position we are in, it will be very difficult to get out of.
“There were a few tears after the game at the weekend because going into that game there was a lot of hope and optimism that we would get something from it and try to turn the season around even at this late stage. We were upset.
“We were ahead and then the game swung in the last 15 minutes and I think it has been the story of our season. It’s hard to take sometimes.
“Mathematically, though, we still have hope and we keep going until it is mathematically not possible. We owe that to ourselves and the fans to do that. That’s what we will continue to do.
“Our performances throughout the season haven’t been up to scratch. We haven’t got enough points on board.
“We have quite a settled changing room and harmonious dressing room and we are all very friendly with each other. That has been a big positive for us. The place isn’t completely crumbling like things have been reported on the outside.”
