Moore delighted with WBA character after last-gasp win

Darren Moore expressed his delight after his West Brom side secured a vital win over QPR with a late winner on Tuesday night.

The West Midlands outfit twice lead Rangers with goals from Jefferson Montero and Jacob Murphy, before conceding equalisers from Luke Freeman and Tomer Hemed.

Proceedings appeared to be heading for a draw until Jake Livermore popped up in the dying seconds of the game, scoring the winner in the fourth minute of injury time.

The Albion manager was unsurprisingly delighted with the result, praising his the character of his charges for securing the three points in such dramatic fashion.

“The goal came so late in the game but it’s better late than never,” Moore told wba.co.uk.

“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.”

West Brom now sit fourth in the Championship table, three points behind league leaders Norwich City.
