West Brom boss Darren Moore spoke to reporters after his side's win over Queens Park Rangers on Tuesday night, and offered high words of praise for Jefferson Montero, suggesting that the winger's performance will do him the world of good, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail.

The Baggies signed the 29-year-old on loan from Swansea City on transfer deadline day last month, but he has made just two appearances for Moore's side thus far.

 

Montero is a truly top-class player on his day, and if he manages to hit his stride between now and the end of the season, West Brom will stand a real chance of forcing their way inside the top two.

Moore addressed the media on Tuesday night, and admitted that the 64-capped Ecuador international needed more training sessions to get him up to the required level when he moved to the Hawthorns last month, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail:

"We're pleased, since signing him, we felt he needed some sessions, we've been trying to give him that. We thought tonight was the right night and he came up trumps and that will do him the world of good. He got into threatening positions, another couple of weeks he'll be going straight at opponents, he can feel happy."

Montero scored for West Brom on Tuesday night, and that will give him the world of confidence heading into the final third of the campaign.

And Moore will be hoping that the winger can help fire his team to promotion back to the Premier League.
