Moore looks to extend home momentum

DARREN Moore is keen to rediscover the momentum that Albion took into the international break when they return to home turf on Tuesday night.

The Baggies won four successive fixtures at The Hawthorns prior to the interval, culminating in the “near-on complete” performance which brought a 2-1 triumph over Stoke City.  

And Moore is looking for his men to make the most of three consecutive home games, as they host Bristol City, Millwall and Crystal Palace over the next eight days.  

“The result against Stoke was a near-on complete performance, it was very, very good,” he said.

“The game at Birmingham was a bit choppy and dicey, we saw that. 

“We’re trying to find that momentum and carry that forward. 

“We felt we had the momentum going into the international break, and it probably came at a time when we’d have preferred to be playing games. 

“I thought it was a fantastic point at Blues on Friday, a battling performance. 

“The big thing is that they were trying to do the right things. Six or seven of them weren’t quite at it. 

“You analyse the international break, training methods, and as a head coach, with my staff, I have looked at that and tried to detail what went wrong. But sometimes you can overanalyse it and just say it was a bad day at the office.

“We need to be patient but at the same time we’re in a results-driven business. 

“We want to play winning football and get results but also I want to utilise the players’ strengths that I believe we have.

“We want to play a style of football that will suit and compliment the players.”
