Alan Pardew is set to stay at West Brom for their game against Leicester City next weekend.

It was initially thought that following the club’s defeat to Watford on Saturday, Pardew would be given his marching orders. However, despite the Baggies’ evident shortcomings this season, it seems the manager will live to fight another day.

As reported by the Express and Star, the former Crystal Palace boss will remain in the hot-seat for the time being but his future is under immense scrutiny, as West Brom’s board ponder his future.

West Brom are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table and are well adrift of safety. The club have endured an awful season thus far and have only nine games to turn their campaign around.

It’s stated in the report from the Express and Star that one other reason for Pardew’s survival in the job at the Hawthorns is due to a lack of viable replacements, with West Brom currently in a treacherous position.
