Baggies can delay relegation with positive showing on Tyneside

Newcastle may lack motivation for meaningless fixture

West Brom caretaker manager Darren Moore
1 of 1

3pm Saturday

West Brom are going to be relegated at some stage but they may further delay the inevitable by winning at Newcastle.

Albion have played with freedom and enthusiasm since Darren Moore took over as caretaker-manager and have gone unbeaten for three games.

They deserved their 1-0 win at Manchester United and their 2-2 draw with Liverpool and are boosted by Daniel Sturridge's return to the squad.

Newcastle have done well to stave off the drop but their motivation appeared to be on the wane when they lost 1-0 at Everton on Monday.
