Gibbs: Fans deserve fighting finish

KIERAN Gibbs acknowledges both he and his team-mates owe fans and staff a fighting finish to the season.

Albion are back at The Hawthorns on Saturday desperate to break the grim sequence of results which has rooted the team to the foot of the Premier League.

The Baggies were 13 minutes away from victory at the Vitality Stadium in their previous match before suffering a cruel twist at the finish that gave them scamp reward for a determined performance.

But the 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth was another bitter blow in a difficult season which has tested the patience of supporters.

Gibbs believes the fans could’ve dealt out ‘far more stick’ based on the Club’s results and the defender wants to reward them with a spirited close to the campaign.

He said: “There’s still a long way to go so we have to try and stay positive.

“However, we also have to realise the situation that we are in.

“We want to give something back to the fans because they have been brilliant this season.

“They could have been a lot worse with the team and I think they have really stuck by us.

“If anything, we need to give something back to the fans and the people involved with the club.

“We have to look forward for the remaining games of the season and try to stay as positive as we can.”
