Another heart-breaking Premier League loss hits West Bromwich Albion as they suffered another 1-2 away defeat against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium.
The Baggies had a strong performance and a well-deserved one goal lead early in the second half from Jay Rodriguez.
However, a long range goal from Jordan Ibe in the 77th-minute equalized the game and an 89th-minute free-kick from Junior Stanislas sealed the comeback win for Bournemouth.
“It’s really difficult to take. It’s heartbreaking for everyone – the fans, the staff and particularly the players, who did not deserve that. The gameplan and the execution of the gameplan I could have no complaints about. It’s very difficult to talk to the players after an effort like that – their application and their fight was commendable. They did not deserve that outcome, they really didn’t.” Pardew stated
Moving forward, the Albion coach insisted that he will continue to fight for his job as his team slipped closer to the brink of dismissal in the league.
“I get asked (about his future) it every week. Unfortunately when you’re losing it makes it more and more difficult. But of course I’m under contract here for another three years (two seasons) and I’ve got to keep fighting. And I keep saying to my players after (games), you’ve got to keep fighting and showing pride in what you do and that’s what I’m going to do until such time that I’m told not to. Unfortunately for us, we are running out of time. It’s just tough, there’s things going against us but when you’re down the bottom of the league that does happen.”
As of now, West Brom, who sits at the bottom of the table, is 10 points adrift of safety with seven games left to play.
