Point stops the rot, says Darren

DARREN Moore will take the positives from Albion’s point against Blackburn Rovers despite believing his side did enough to earn all three.

Harrison Reed cancelled out Craig Dawson's opener in a frantic afternoon at The Hawthorns which saw Rovers midfielder Richard Smallwood take up a goalkeeper's berth for the last ten minutes after injury to David Raya.

While the Baggies did everything but score in the final throes, the gaffer thought his side had done enough to win the game against a "plucky" visiting outfit.

"It's a point that stops the rot," said Darren.

"After the week we've had with the two losses you've got to look that it stops a rot setting in.

"I thought we created enough to get the all-important second goal.

"It just eluded us. Everyone saw the intent was there.

"Take nothing away from Blackburn, they were plucky today, gritty.

"Our thoughts are with David the goalkeeper who suffered a bad injury. But after that we had a number of chances to score.

"We wanted more but we've finished the week with a point.

"I'm pleased in the end because from a psychological point of view it's something to work from.

"We'll take the positives.

"We've got a chance now to get some work in on the training ground ahead of another Saturday fixture.

"It's about turning it around, getting back on track and getting that fluidity back."
