Baggies finish bottom after Palace defeat

Albion ended the 2017/18 season in defeat as the Baggies lost 2-0 to former boss Roy Hodgson's Crystal Palace. 

Two goals inside ten minutes from Wilfried Zaha and Patrick Van Aanholt were enough to egde out a below par Albion. 

The Baggies were already relegated after Southampton's victory in midweek and failed to deliver any spark against the Eagles. 

But despite Albion's poor show, caretaker boss Darren Moore was pleased the club's end-of-season rally has resorted some pride back in the Hawthorns faithful. 

"It was a difficult end to a difficult season," said the fans' favourite.

"The biggest thing that the players have done is to restore some pride to the football club and belief to the supporters.

"Certainly over the last six games we've seen some fighting spirit. We wanted to go out on a high but it was a game too far.

"It's a strange one to say, but we are going down on a positive note," he added.

"I stand here proud to represent the football club.

"Now it's time for the club to start that rebuilding process and get ready for the start of next season."
