Pardew's side face a crucial game against Bournemouth tomorrow, and nothing less than a win will do, if they are to have any chance whatsoever of avoiding the drop this season. It's hard. This was particularly harsh, we didn't make many errors in the whole game but unfortunately we've lost.

West Bromwich Albion's hopes of Premier League survival have taken a major blow courtesy of a late 2-1 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium this afternoon.

"Tough for us today [and] tough for my players in particular because in terms of the game plan and delivering it, I couldn't really ask for any more", Pardew said. "It is really hard on our players". They had held a deserved lead until the 77th minute but, just as the words "great escape" were being hopefully murmured in the away end, Bournemouth struck twice and also cleared one West Brom shot off the line to clinch all three points in a dramatic finale.
