Darren Moore describes West Broms trashing as bizarre

first_imgWest Brom’s head coach Darren Moore has labeled the game against Derby County as “bizarre” after losing at home to a more clinical side.The Baggies’ five-game winning streak in the league at home came to an abrupt end tonight after losing to Derby County by four goals to one in front of their home fans.Darren Moore felt his side was denied what appeared to look like an obvious penalty just before the halftime marker when Dwight Gayle was trapped inside the 18-yard box.The referee turned down West Brom’s plea for a spot-kick even after replays showed Scott Malone had caught Dwight Gayle’s leg faintly in the penalty area.“I thought the changing part of the game was the incident with Dwight,” Moore said as quoted by Birmingham Mail.“Dwight wouldn’t go down like that, not when he has the chance to score. Whether it was a penalty or a free kick I’m not sure. My players stayed on it and huffed and puffed to the end”videoAshley Cole announces his retirement from football Andrew Smyth – August 18, 2019 Former Arsenal and Chelsea star Ashley Cole has confirmed his retirement from football at the age of 38.“Well done to Derby. They had some clinical finishes and ran out winners.”Albion were jittery and made too many errors at the back that their opponents capitalized on. Derby would have extended the score line but Sam Johnstone was resilient in goal.Yet Moore believed things could have turned out differently and felt his boys dominated some parts of the game.“It was a bizarre game,” he said. “Obviously they were very clinical in their finishing. The first goal they got up and there was a clinical second finish.”“I thought West Brom were in the ascendancy all the way. We had half-chances, which in recent weeks we’ve capitalised on and been devastating with our finishes. It just wasn’t to be. Call it what you want, whether it was a bizarre game or a bad day at office.”West Brom are now fourth on the Championship table with 24 points  just behind Sheffield United, Middlesbrough and Leeds United who all share 26 points but ate separated by goal difference. The Baggies will host Blackburn Rovers on the 27th of October in round 15 of Championship matches.last_img
