‘Entertaining’ Albion pleasing Moore

DARREN Moore has praised the collective efforts of his players in producing “entertaining” football at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies, who have won five games on the bounce at home, bagged another four goals against Bristol City on Tuesday night – a result which lifted them to fourth in the Sky Bet Championship.

Moore’s men are the top scorers in the division with 20 goals from eight matches, two more than leaders Leeds United.

And the boss says spirits within the camp are high heading into Saturday’s clash with Millwall.

“The team spirit seems good in the group,” said Moore.

“We are playing football here which seems to be entertaining.

“The fans like to see goals being scored and we have certainly scored our fair share of them.

“We have people at the top end of the pitch who are composed and clinical when the chances come their way.

“But there are also bodies behind them in the defensive and midfield units that are creating the chances for those players to score goals.

“It’s really a group effort.

“The players are great with each other. They discuss things among themselves which is great for me as the Head Coach to see those types of things going on.

“We will all continue to work hard in trying to improve the team and the football club.”

The Lions head to The Hawthorns sitting one place and one point above the relegation zone having won just once in the league so far.

But Moore believes Millwall will offer a “stern test” and insisted Albion would need to be at their best to claim three points.

“We have a tough game against Millwall on Saturday.

“They are a big, strong, organised team. They’ve also got some very good players.

“Neil Harris has done a superb job there and he has made the club very solid.

“They’ll pose a stern test and we will have to be at our very best if we are going to win. It’s a game we are really looking forward to.”
