Pardew fights on after West Brom talks

Wilfried Zaha

A tendency for West Brom to undo their hard work has blighted them all season and did so again here as Ben Foster was caught cold by Jordon Ibe's swerving effort on a biting afternoon on the south coast before Junior Stanislas's postage-stamp free-kick sealed victory two minutes from time.

The defeat leaves West Brom 10 points from safety at the bottom of the Premier League table courtesy of a club record-equalling seventh consecutive league defeat, whereas Bournemouth climb up to 11th and are now eight points clear of the relegation zone.

Baggies players said, anonymously, last week that they were surprised manager Alan Pardew still had his job.

"We got ourselves in a great position, made a couple of errors and got punished for it. It's such a galling way to end the game".

Pardew, who was only appointed in November, is under heavy pressure with his side seven points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League after a run of six successive losses. It's hard. This was particularly harsh, we didn't make many errors in the whole game but unfortunately we've lost.

"Of course, we have to keep battling on".

"They'll be walking out of here injured animals as they didn't deserve that". "Unfortunately for us, it wasn't".

Pardew's side face a crucial game against Bournemouth tomorrow, and nothing less than a win will do, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of avoiding the drop this season.

Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe said his team's performances was below par and he was relieved with the result.

Although Bournemouth are well-placed to secure a fourth successive season in the top flight, Stanislas said they were not home and dry just yet. "We had to dig very deep, but thankfully, we got over the line".

When they went up 1-0 against Leicester last week they nearly looked surprised, and then pessimistic as if they knew the four-goals they would end up conceding were inevitable. "We had to find a way to win without playing well".
