He could reflect on a job well done after a comfortable victory over West Brom whose relegation was confirmed on Tuesday, the same day caretaker manager Darren Moore collected the April manager of the month award.

Moore's remarkable impact has seen him backed by many to take on the manager's position permanently, but the club have yet to make a decision, and Moore moved to clarify the situation on Friday.

Roy Hodgson has expressed his "disappointment" at having to face West Brom in their final Premier League game. If they win on Saturday, they could finish 10th.

A triumphant finale for Roy Hodgson's men put them in 11th place which is a fantastic achievement considering the Eagles lost their opening seven matches.

The Premier League Manager of the Year award would be the ideal accolade for his work.
