Moore stands by his decisions

31st March 2019, 18:35 by Tom Hill

Former West Brom manager Darren Moore claims he would not have done anything different following his sacking earlier this month.

The 44-year-old admits he was shocked when he was dismissed by the Baggies board after guiding the club into the Championship play-off positions.

Moore was given the job last May following an impressive spell in charge after Alan Pardew's sacking.

However, he was given the boot after two defeats in three games left them fourth in the table.

Despite losing his job, Moore has revealed he would not change a thing during his first interview since his departure.

He told Goals on Sunday: "It was a shock at the time but I am buoyed by where I left the club and I've given them the platform to hopefully this season claim that Premier League prize.

"All I've ever done was focus on winning games. I knew that February was going to be a tough month for us because we were playing all the top teams around us, but in the Championship you can lose 10 games and still get promoted. Everyone can beat everyone.

"It was just trying to work through those choppy waters and I thought we were still in a position where we could press on and get there, but it is what it is and it's time to move on."
