Darnell Furlong: West Brom defender bullish over Southampton test

8 May 2024 0 By Total Football News

West Brom defender Darnell Furlong says his side understand the “special” challenge the Championship play-offs present and insists they are ready to face Southampton.

The Baggies clinched fifth place with a 3-0 win over Preston on the final day at the Hawthorns and now meet fourth-placed Saints on Sunday.

Furlong, 28, was part of the team that got promoted under Slaven Bilic in 2019-20 and is confident there can be a repeat under Carlos Corberan.

“We know the play-offs is a lottery but we will be doing everything we can,” he told BBC Radio WM.

“We’re here for a reason, so are the other teams but will take it to them and see what happens.

“The play-offs are a very special part of football; the Championship play-off final is one of the biggest games in the world. It’ll be nice to get there and see what happens.”
