Moore: Set-piece plan paid off

DARREN Moore was delighted to see his side cash in on two set-pieces at Swansea and leave South Wales with three points.

The Baggies recorded a 2-1 win at the Liberty Stadium thanks to two first-half headers from centre-backs Craig Dawson and then Ahmed Hegazi.

Albion had highlighted set-plays as an area where they could hurt Graham Potter’s team and Moore praised his players for capitalising on the opportunities.

He said: “It’s always good to pick up three points away from home.

“It was a tough game and Swansea played with a different system, we had to come to terms with that pretty quickly.

“I was pleased with our quick response after their goal.

“Both teams cancelled each other out but we’ve won the game thanks to two corners.

“We thought we could exploit Swansea on set-plays but you have to make sure you get everything right, in terms of the delivery, the timing of the run and then the finish.

“We are really pleased for both Daws and Ahmed.

“I like seeing my centre-backs score.

“We found a different way to win the game and I’m really happy about that. It’s three very valuable points.”

Darren also reserved a special mention for the fans who made the long journey to Wales on a bitterly cold and wet night.

“Credit to the fans," he said.

“It’s been two long journeys back-to-back (Ipswich and Swansea).

“It’s not easy organising work and travel. I thank them all personally and collectively.

 “Their support is greatly appreciated.”
