Mooro on 'electric' afternoon

5 May 2018

DARREN Moore has hailed both players and fans as Albion kept their unlikely Premier League survival dream alive.

Jake Livermore bundled the ball home deep into added time to give the Baggies three points and keep their rescue mission on track - at least until later this evening.

Should Everton beat Southampton in today's late kick-off, Mooro's men will survive until Tuesday evening, when the Saints travel to fellow strugglers Swansea City.

And Darren admitted that, although things are still out of Albion's hands, he was delighted to be part of an "electric" Hawthorns atmopshere for the final time this season.

"The place was electric today. We thank the fans. They were our twelfth man today," he said.

"We've come together as a group and we're just working. The hard work is paying off. We'll just move on to next week's game. We can't do anything about what happens elsewhere.

"It's another good three points for us. It was a really good performance by the boys. They gave everything today.

"We spoke about commitment, desire and courage. They've shown that since I've stepped into this role. They've been second to none.

"I'm so pleased, again, for everybody connected with the football club. The message is clear again - when we all come together, we can achieve a lot."

The result means Darren's unbeaten record at the Baggies helm extends to five Premier League matches. Jose Mourinho, Rafael Benitez and now Mauricio Pochettino have all fallen foul of the big man since he took charge of first team affairs.

"We knew they're difficult opponents with quality players," Mooro added.

"We had to play a tight game, a cagey game. As the game wore on and spaces developed, we thought we had the quality on the bench to expose those areas.

"The game plan worked to perfection. We got a goal right at the end and we thoroughly deserved it."
