'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Baggies coach stunned by Royals fightback

West Brom head coach Steve Clarke has admitted he was more disappointed than angry with his side, after they lost to Reading on Saturday afternoon.

Clarke's men were two goals up at the Madejski with eight minutes left to play, but Jimmy Kebe's back post header reduced the deficit. The Malian was then fouled in the box just minutes later, with Le Fondre slotting home the level. Then as the 90 minute approached, Pavel Pogrbenyak stabbed home the winner in an amazing comeback.

Speaking to Albion's Official website, Clarke said: 'At the moment, I`m disappointed more than angry. I`m disappointed for my players because for 81 minutes their performance was really good and we should be talking about how good their performance was. Unfortunately, the game lasts a little bit longer than 81 minutes!'

'At the moment, we`re just analysing and surveying the wreckage of what was a really good performance that turned into a bit of a nightmare for us. We never think the points are in the bag in the Premier League. I thought we had a good control of the game though and I certainly couldn`t see the finish to the game that actually happened.'
