Fourth-placed Albion welcome second-placed Sheffield United for a crucial encounter at the top end of the table between two in-form sides

The Baggies’ late winner at Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday means victory over the Blades in the 5.30pm kick-off could see them leap back into the top two if other results go their way.

“In terms of the media and where both teams are, there’s a bit of icing on the cake,” said Moore. “It bodes well for a really exciting packed house at The Hawthorns on Saturday.

“Credit to both teams with what we’ve done this season and we go head-to-head on Saturday.”

Both Albion and Sheffield United have picked up 10 points from their past four games to stay in the mix with Norwich City and Leeds United.

However, individual errors at Loftus Road in midweek almost cost Moore’s men two points – and though he will begrudgingly accept those if it means his side are trying to play the game in the correct manner, he does want to eradicate those mistakes.

He said: “Unfortunately when you want to play the game, which I feel is in the right way, you’re going to get these hiccups and bumps in the road.

“We don’t want them, but this way of playing has made us the leading scorers in the division.


“We’re trying to take the rough with the smooth, we don’t want them, we are working to eradicate them. But it’s part of the game.

“When they do come, I’ve had to accept them, not willingly, because I don’t want them, but you have to have them in order to promote learning. Again, we’ll look at the (first) goal we’ve conceded (against QPR) and try and iron and smooth them out.

“Hopefully we don’t have too many of them from now until the end of the season.”
