Darren Moore: 'West Bromwich Albion wanted pride and commitment back'

Darren Moore hails his West Bromwich Albion players for restoring "pride and commitment" to the club as they beat Tottenham Hotspur 1-0 to remain alive in the Premier League.

Darren Moore has praised his West Bromwich Albion players for restoring "pride and commitment" to the club as they kept their Premier League survival hopes alive on Saturday.

The Baggies ran out 1-0 winners over Tottenham Hotspur at The Hawthorns, Jake Livermore forcing the ball over the line in the 92nd minute of the encounter to jubilant scenes among the home fans.

Although West Brom will still go down if Southampton win at Everton in Saturday's late kickoff, caretaker manager Moore praised the hard work and commitment put in by everyone at the West Midlands club.

"It was a pulsating game, up against a very good team who asked us a lot of questions," Moore told BBC Sport.

"We trusted the commitment of the players and needed to play a tight game because of the quality Spurs possess. It worked in the end and we got the goal. I am really pleased we got the goal, clean sheet and got the win.

"We have been on this road for four, nearly five weeks. We wanted to get some pride and commitment back. The supporters have been excellent. I am the one up here but it is we as a football club - the supporters, staff and officials - and through hard work and commitment results are coming."

West Brom wrap up the season with a trip to Crystal Palace on May 13.
