Half-Hearted Performance Has Toon Boss Asking Questions

Chris Hughton: "After most games, there tends to be an inquest into the game and today we didn't do well enough to win a football match.

"Some of it is about getting answers, some of it is about venting your anger.

"But these are the normal things that will go on after a game, particularly when the result has been as disappointing as today.

"Our season has very much been highs and lows. We've picked up some disappointing results and we've had some tremendous results.

"We lost away at Bolton a couple of weeks ago, which was probably our poorest result of the season, and we came here on the back of a good result last week (against Chelsea).

"But we weren't good enough in enough departments today and that is why we have been in there (the dressing room) so long.

"I wasn't happy with the performance. I didn't think we started the game well enough.

"We know with the way West Brom play, there are times where you are going to have to concede possession, with the numbers that they play in midfield.

"But I thought we added to our own downfall with the goals.

"Up until the first goal, even though West Brom were the better side, I still felt we were comfortable enough as a team.

"But we've given away poor goals and you can't do that against anyone in this division."
