Pulis disappointed at late goal

Baggies boss watches side concede late goal

TONY Pulis bemoaned Liverpool's late equaliser at Anfield, which ruined Albion's hopes of a victory.

The Baggies boss felt his side were unfortunate not to claim the win after Jonas Olsson had put Albion ahead in the second-half.

Speaking about the result, Pulis said:
"I'm more disappointed that they made it 2-2. 
"Irrespective of the power, the talent, the money, you get smaller clubs coming to places like Anfield and giving it a go.
"This is a league where the small teams can do this. I'm just so disappointed we couldn't get the win.
"We've been hard-working, resilient and we gave it a go.
"Stood here, now, I feel disappointed. But credit to our fans, who were brilliant today."

Pulis also brushed aside Liverpool's anger at Craig Gardner's challenge on Dejan Lovren, which left the defender with a badly-cut knee.
"For me there were two worse fouls. If you want to talk about bad fouls then what about James Milner on Gardner and Skrtel on Salomon? 
"I saw the tape back and Gardner played the ball. The other two were bad- Skrtel went over the top and it's a good job Salomon moved."

Pulis was also disappointed by the confusion caused by the decision to disallow Jonas Olsson's first-half goal. The Swede thought he had scored, only for referee Craig Pawson to disallow it after speaking to his assistant.
"The big disappointment is that the linesman didn't put his flag up. They tell me he was offside so why not put the flag up? How will the referee decide if it's offside? 
"We will speak to the officials and find out. Apparently it was the right decision but it's disappointing the flag didn't go up - there was a lot of doubt and confusion about it.
"The referee pointed for a kick-off and I thought it was a goal but then it was disallowed."
