'Wonder goal' a real hammer blow - Daws

Michael Dawson admitted Simon Cox's fine equaliser hit the team for six as West Brom picked up a 2-2 draw at the Lane on Saturday.

Cox curled right into the top corner from 25 yards in the 81st minute of a roller-coaster Premier League encounter.

We conceded an early goal to Peter Odemwingie in the fifth minute and lost Benoit Assou-Ekotto to injury during the build-up to that goal.

We re-organised and hit back in typical fashion. Roman Pavlyuchenko levelled in the 27th minute and Jermain Defoe struck his 100th goal for the club to make it 2-1 in the 67th minute.

But the visitors showed exactly why they've only lost once in eight matches under Roy Hodgson when Cox produced his moment of brilliance to level.

"To concede that wonder goal after coming back from going 1-0 down so early and losing Benoit really took it out of us," said skipper Michael.

"We looked good to go on and win when we went 2-1 up.

"We were passing the ball around well at that stage but it only takes a second to score a goal and that proved it.

"It was so disappointing but we have to pick ourselves up and go again."
