Alan Pardew shares what West Brom fans will admit if they're honest

Under-fire West Brom boss Alan Pardew has urged the club's supporters to stay in "positive mode" after another demoralising defeat.

Pardew will take charge at home to Leicester City on Saturday but defeat would bring another review of his tenure and push West Brom closer to the Championship for the first time since the 2010-11 campaign.

West Brom were the better of the two sides here at Vicarage Road, but Salomon Rondon spurned a number of opportunities to break the deadlock, while Deeney - linked with a move to The Hawthorns during the January transfer window - made no mistake with his only chance of the game.

Pardew's appointment as manager at the Hawthorns was expected to coincide with an upturn in form for West Brom, but that has so far failed to materialise. "A win can change the dynamic, but when you look at our win and goal ratio you question that".

"We won't give up the fight we will keep going until we get something". It's a tough business, we're playing tough teams.

There has also been dressing-room unrest, with Pardew confirming Chris Brunt launched an unhappy tirade at him and the team following last week's 2-1 defeat to Huddersfield. Watford raced down the other end and Richarlison's overhead kick fell inches past the post.

The Hornets thought they had scored with 15 minutes left to play when Stefano Okaka swivelled and shot, only for Kieran Gibbs to block on the line - but their despair was short-lived.

The Baggies board have chose to keep the failing head coach in place for at least one more game due to an improved performance against Watford even though Albion lost 1-0.

When Pardew was asked if he doubted his own abilities following this terrible run with the Baggies, he said: "I have been in the game long enough not to doubt myself".

"I am only focused on the next match and the next three points". I don't think it is anything to do with that.
