Moore: Players got their just rewards

Darren Moore hailed Albion’s “belief and togetherness” following their dramatic last-gasp victory at QPR on Tuesday night.

Jake Livermore’s injury-time strike secured an eighth win in nine away from home in the Sky Bet Championship, a result which propelled the Baggies to within one point of the automatic promotion places.

Albion were pegged back twice by their hosts in west London, but Moore’s men, who have won every away game after taking the lead this season, dug deep to find one last burst of energy and claim victory in the fourth minute of added time. 

And the boss pointed towards the “great character” on display at Loftus Road.

He said: “The goal came so late in the game but it’s better late than never.

“Credit to the boys because they have shown tremendous spirit.

“Our sheer belief and character within the group has carried us through and got us the three points.

“We certainly had to dig deep. To come here and score three goals and win the game is really pleasing.

“The players have got their just rewards for their effort and energy.

“I’m pleased that the boys were able to continue right to the end. You could feel the energy on the pitch. You could feel that there was going to be one final chance.

“There’s great team spirit and desire here.

“We’ve come a long way as a team and we will continue to work hard.”
