West Brom boss talks about their situation in the table.

West Bromwich Albion

sits in 19th place in the Premier League table, and their boss

Sam Allardyce

, who already has the experience of rescuing teams from relegation, says that it would be the greatest escape of his professional career.

“I think probably (this would be) the greatest because of the number of points we need compared to the other clubs I’ve been at,”

Allardyce said

“Unfortunately we look back on those periods and say those victories really should have been achieved.

“But in the main we can only hold ourselves accountable for that because far too many chances have been missed to win a game and that’s left us in a more difficult position than we probably were at Crystal Palace.”
