Carlos Corberán | It feels like two points lost

Carlos Corberán

Carlos Corberán believes his side’s second-half performance was good enough to beat Blackburn on Wednesday night and feels Albion have dropped two points.

The Baggies were within touching distance of an eighth successive home win and clean sheet following Jayson Molumby’s opener 17 minutes from time, however, Ben Brereton Diaz converted a free-kick with less than ninety seconds of normal time remaining to rescue a point for Rovers.

Corberán admitted the players' commitment on the night could not be faulted, but accepted wrong decisions were made in relation to Blackburn's equaliser at The Hawthorns.

Carlos said: “We are totally disappointed because we have the feeling that we have lost two points today.

“The reaction from the team in the second half was excellent. In the first half we didn’t find the right ways to attack, but in the second half we did.

“We managed to stop their chances and we increased our own chances to score.

“It was a tough and difficult game, which is what we expected against a side like Blackburn.

“For me, the team did very good things in the second half, things which were good enough to earn us the three points, especially after the goal that we scored.

“They were deep and we went and tried to score the second one. 

“We only made one wrong decision in the second half and the decision cost the free-kick, which they then used to balance the game and take a point. 

“We created our own problem for their goal. It wasn’t the right decision our players took in that moment.

“The players are frustrated. The level of commitment is always massive. I can’t just say that when we are winning. I need to say the truth. They were giving the right response to the game and they were performing well.

“It’s important not to feel too deep or too down because we have another game coming up quickly.

“We did lots well and when you do that normally you have three points.

“Unfortunately that wasn’t the case today.”
