West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore to learn future today

West Brom caretaker boss Darren Moore could learn today if he is to be handed the fulltime job.

After defeat to Crystal Palace, Moore claimed his side were suffering “a bit of a hangover" from Tuesday's confirmation of their relegation.

The Baggies want to make a swift permanent appointment in the next few days with Moore competing with Brentford's Dean Smith for the role of bringing the club straight back to the Premier League next season.

Moore, who won the Manager of the Month award for going unbeaten in his first five matches, again declined to state he wanted the job.

He said: “I've answered the call to step in as a caretaker. It's been an honour and a proud moment for me, and I'm pleased with the way we've responded: there's been a real togetherness about everyone.

“We stopped the rot, shown pride and compassion for the supporters, and offered hard work and endeavour. We've seen that over the final six weeks of a very difficult campaign.

“It's important the club comes together to start to implement the right plans, procedures, players, people, whatever that may be."
