West Brom 'lost belief' in loss to Leicester City, suggests Alan Pardew

Despite taking the lead through Salomón Rondón in the eighth minute of the game, the Baggies collapsed in the second-half to leave them languishing at the bottom of the table, eight points from safety.

Albion had competed in the first half and went into the break on level terms after Leicester striker Jamie Vardy had equalised Salomon Rondon's opener.

"Before you even ask, will I speak to upstairs - of course I will because it's getting hard". I am not going to lay down tools because I am saying to the players they have to fight until the end.

Albion now find themselves in a hard position in more ways than one, with the club anxious to avoid making a managerial change for the second time this season, partly because of the financial implications but largely as there are no credible alternatives, internally or externally, to take over from Pardew with only eight fixtures left and relegation looking a formality. "My pride on the side line is such that I don't want to stand there and for that last 15, 20 minutes and watch that". And that is a worry and on the run we're on I still don't think there's an excuse.

West Brom's remaining games in March see the Baggies head to the south coast to play Eddie Howe's Bournemouth, before then playing host to high-flying Burnley at the Hawthorns.

As well as being costly, they feel it may hamper the process of deciding who can best lead the team next season.

"They've got to fight to the end".

Pardew substituted West Brom midfielder Grzegorz Krychowiak just before the hour mark.

West Brom's sixth successive loss finished in embarrassing fashion as Leicester attacked at will in scenes reminiscent of a training game and Pardew accepted that the club's hierarchy must decide whether the time is right to part.

"I do have a problem with it because I've supported him and played him and stuck by him when he's not been particularly great", he added. I made it very clear to him on the bench I'm not accepting that, I think it's wrong. "There is an interesting competition in the squad and players show spirit to fight for their places". It was interesting to keep the ball on the floor more to work them a little more.

"We could have finished the first half 3-3, it was insane", he said, with his team eighth in the table on 40 points.
