Pardew takes criticism on chin as Baggies fall to another defeat

West Bromwich Albion 1-2 Huddersfield Town

By Phil Medlicott

West Brom boss Alan Pardew has stressed he and his players have to accept the criticism coming their way and simply keep looking forward in their battle for Premier League survival.

During the 2-1 home loss to Huddersfield, there were cries from Baggies fans of "you're getting sacked in the morning" directed at Pardew and "you're not fit to wear the shirt" at his team.

Boos rang around The Hawthorns at the final whistle. Their fourth successive league defeat left rock-bottom West Brom still seven points adrift of safety, with 10 games to play. The next of those is Saturday's trip to Watford. Pardew said with regard to what had been heard from the fans: "We have to accept that and move on, and that is what we will do.

"We just have to go to the next week and hopefully get a win."

Strikes from Rajiv van La Parra in the 48th minute and Steve Mounie in the 56th put Huddersfield 2-0 up before Craig Dawson replied with a header in the 64th.
