Carlos Corberán reacts to Potters draw

Carlos Corberán is interviewed after Albion's draw against Stoke

Carlos Corberán believes his side could've done more to work goalscoring opportunities against Stoke City at The Hawthorns.

The Baggies were held to a frustrating draw by the struggling Potters on Sunday lunchtime, with Brandon Thomas-Asante cancelling out Lynden Gooch's cross which flew over Alex Palmer's head and into the back of the net.

Albion had a couple of chances towards the end of the encounter, with Thomas-Asante and substitute Pipa forcing Jack Bonham into smart saves, while defender Kyle Bartley's headed effort was ruled out for offside.

The boss says his team was the one pushing for the three points the most, but accepted they perhaps didn't quite do enough to earn the victory.

Carlos said: "In football I always think the results are the consequences of the performances.

"So for me today, if there was one team who perhaps deserved to win then it would have been us, but at the same time, when we don’t achieve the result we wanted to achieve, it’s because we didn’t do enough.

"We didn’t use the advantages that we had well enough and we should’ve created more chances to score the second goal which would have earned us the win.

"We were the better team, but at the same time, we need to analyse why we didn’t win that game.

"In one game, when you are creating opportunities and the goalkeeper is making the saves, the only thing you can do is to keep on going and insist on doing the things you are doing well.

"We needed to find a way to arrive into the last third of the pitch and create the chances. I think we should have put the ball in the box more times.

"The important thing in football is to win the football matches. If you win after scoring the first goal then fantastic. If you win it after conceding one goal, then great also. You need ton make sure you are ready to face every type of situation in football.

"I think their early goal certainly surprised us and created some level of anxiety. In football you can never lose control of the game. It was important to keep control of the game and create the chances.

"The overall feeling I have from today is that we could have created more chances to score the second goal."
