Alan Pardew hopes to continue as West Brom boss but admitted "that decision is not with me" after this home loss to Huddersfield.

It was a fifth successive defeat in all competitions for Pardew's Premier League basement boys, who have won only one of 14 top-flight games while he's been in charge and are seven points adrift of safety with 10 matches left to play.

There were chants of "you're getting sacked in the morning" directed at Pardew towards the end of the contest, and loud boos at the final whistle.

When asked afterwards if he expected to hold on to his job, the 56-year-old said: "I hope so, but obviously that decision is not with me."

He added, regarding what had been heard from supporters: "I just think it's frustrating - this team has won three in 37 games, which says everything really at the moment. We have to find a way to win a game. My job is to try to get ourselves up as best we can for next week (when they face Watford away) and try to win, and that is what I'm going to try to do.

"This was an opportunity today to get us rolling, and of course we've let that slip.

"We have to find some performances and stand up. There's no point me defending myself or defending players. I have to stand up and manage the team and they have to stand up and give us performances where we get seven, eight, nine out of 10 performances."

Strikes from Rajiv van La Parra in the 48th minute and Steve Mounie in the 56th put Huddersfield 2-0 up before Craig Dawson replied with a header in the 64th.

Terriers boss David Wagner - whose side are up three places to 14th - said he was delighted with how his players handled a "belter" of a match.
