Tony Mowbray eluded to a case of 'same old story' as his West Brom side were beaten 1-0 at the Lane.

Jermaine Jenas curled home the only goal of the game from 25 yards just before half-time.

West Brom played well and caused us problems with Heurelho Gomes forced into a save in each half, Marc-Antoine Fortune hitting the post and Jermain Defoe clearing off the line from Shelton Martis.

We also had chances as Defoe was denied a goal by the linesman's flag and Aaron Lennon struck the post in injury time.

"That was par for us away from home," said Baggies boss Mowbray.

"I wouldn't say we deserved to win but maybe we didn't deserve to lose.

"You can feel their quality, their game knowledge is better than ours. We try to make up with endeavour and playing football in the manner we think is right.

"But it rankles with me that every week I'm told we're playing good football but we can't score goals."
