Players and fans have set marker on the road - Moore

Darren Moore says the high standards set by players and supporters have been key to Albion’s impressive away form.

The Baggies will be backed by a sell-out following of 2,900 fans at Stoke City on Saturday teatime - buoyed by five wins from the Club’s last six outings on the road.  

And Moore insists positive results away from The Hawthorns will be imperative in climbing the Sky Bet Championship league table.

“Consistency in keeping the level of our performances high has been key,” he admitted.

“Going into away grounds, where you’re competing against a home team, and remaining calm and positive is important. It’s about worrying about what we do and how we play our football. 

“It’s important we go about our business and stick to the game plan. It’s about understanding what we’ve been doing in the week and ensuring you apply those aspects when you go to the away stadium. 

“All the odds, when you’re the away team, are stacked against you which makes it even harder. 

“The boys have been doing well and it’s about being a group, with that togetherness, and going forward. It’s what’s needed for the remainder of the season. 

“When I hear that we have a full away day travel it makes me proud. Long may that continue. 

“I appreciate the fans, they know me, and I know them. All I can say to them is thank-you. It’s great to see that there’s going to be 3,000 up there. 

“It’s brilliant and I look forward to seeing them all. My message to them is clear, get behind the boys again. They’ve been marvellous, superb, and we go again tomorrow evening.”
