West Brom boss Alan Pardew: I know I'm right man for job

After their FA Cup defeat to Southampton, West Brom boss Alan Pardew says he remains the right man for the job of preserving the club's Premier League status.

West Brom are seven points from the safety of 17th place - a position currently occupied by their next opponents Huddersfield.

"Yeah, absolutely. I think the second half proved that," said Pardew, who has won only three of his 17 games in charge in all competitions since taking over in November.

"It was difficult to go 2-0 down in the circumstances we're under and I think anybody who was here today will see that was a proper fight and a proper effort.

"I hope I'm the right man because I'm an experienced manager. I've experienced this situation a few times before. Once I have been relegated, at Charlton, but I've got out of this situation before at Newcastle and Crystal Palace and I'm determined to get out of this one as well."
