West Brom boss Moore admits he was ‘delighted’ to take a point from Nottingham Forest clash

Darren Moore was happy to come away with a point from West Brom’s clash with Nottingham Forest at the Hawthorns last night.

Notts Forest twice lead on Tuesday night thanks to an own goal from Fulham loanee Stefan Johansen and a Ryan Yates strike, but equalisers from Jacob Murphy and a controversial late penalty, scored by Jay Rodriguez, ensure each side shared a point.

Dwight Gayle went down in the Forest box under minimal, if any, contact in the 89th minute, giving Rodriguez the opportunity to tie the game up.

Albion manager Darren Moore was happy to come away from the game with a point while expressing his disappointment with the performance.

“I’m delighted with the point because tonight’s performance was a bit lethargic,’’ Moore told the BBC.

”Maybe for the first time, is that the volume of games that we’ve been playing in the Championship?

“The only reason I say that is because all 11 were off colour tonight.

“But we kept on right to the end and that determination won us a point.”

West Brom, sitting fourth in the Championship, remain firmly in the playoff picture, while Forest lie five points outside the top six with an extra game played having not won an away league fixture in seven attempts.
