McAuley reacts to Bournemouth defeat

20 December 2015

Defender gives his views on Saturday’s setback

GARETH McAuley conceded Albion should have been able to hold out for a point against Bournemouth, given the experience within the side.

The Baggies were stung by Charlie Daniels’ 87th minute winner from the spot, a goal which halted their four-game unbeaten run.

The Northern Ireland international, who had headed home an equaliser with just over ten to go, was frustrated to see Albion’s share of the spoils slip away late on.

“It’s disappointing that after getting back into the game we couldn’t see it out,” said McAuley.

“There wasn’t long to go and we have enough experience in our side to be able to see that out.

“We should have come away with at least a point.

“There are a few massive games coming up now against teams who are in the bottom half of the league.

“We will be looking to get back to winning ways.

“We will take this one on the chin and go back into work on Monday and start again.”
