The Englishman strongly acknowledged he believes the away aspect had been robbed of a legit choice.
“It is plain and easy to see. You have to take a look at it from a West Brom viewpoint as properly, they’ve come right here and been tight, saved to their gameplan and been strong. They (West Brom) are in search of little alternatives in a recreation like that, they get one and it will get taken from them.”
