Pardew describes loss to Bournemouth as 'heartbreaking'

  • Rondon found the net against Leicester. Can he do so at Bournemouth

"It was important to get a result today off the back of the Tottenham and Leicester games", said Howe.

"We need a win, whichever way it comes". "I don't think I have ever had a feeling we are on a slide".

While Palace remains hopeful of retaining their lucrative top-flight berth, bottom-of-the-table West Brom appears certain to slide into the Championship.

After the first half ended in a draw, Jay Rodriguez opened the scoring for the guests four minutes after the break.

Pardew, who was appointed in November, is under heavy pressure with his side seven points adrift at the bottom of the Premier League after a run of six successive losses.

And Pardew conceded it was a tough afternoon for his side.

Albion were wilting and Junior Stanislas gave Bournemouth their first win in five league games with an 89th-minute free-kick.


"We're getting into a period now where the senior players need to deliver, otherwise we're not going to be in with a shout of staying up", he said.

- West Brom have lost 24 points from leading positions in the top-flight this season, more than any other team. "It is really hard on our players".

When Dominic Calvert-Lewin tried to bundle in, Konstantinos Stafylidis could only hack clear to Tosun, who smashed in from close range.

West Brom now sit 10 points from safety with only seven games of the campaign remaining, but Pardew insists that his side will continue to battle on.

Stanislas went for goal from another set-piece in the 74th minute but his curling effort landed on the roof of the net, Eddie Howe having turned to veteran striker Jermain Defoe with his final change.

Crystal Palace boosted their hopes of survival while West Bromwich Albion seem destined for the drop after losing to Bournemouth.
