Baggies boss Tony Mowbray was left bemoaning his side's lack of good fortune after seeing them hit the woodwork six times against Norwich.

“A team that hits the woodwork six times has got to count itself unfortunate not to win,” he said. “Have I run over a black cat? It may appear that way.

“This result is hard to take, but we've got to push on. With a bit more fortune, we could have won comfortably today. We conceded a soft goal. Norwich didn't have to work hard to score it, which is disappointing.

“But we've had enough chances to win the last four games comfortably.”

“They are desperate to do well, but the ball is not going in the net at the moment. The players are obviously not too happy, the dressing room is quiet and they are frustrated.

“But they are determined and we need to keep going. When the going gets tough you have to come together and I sense that mood in the dressing room. We are all in this for the long run to take the club back into the Premier League.

“I am confident in my ability to get this club on the right track. If we had not been creating chances we would have been questioning things, but that is not the case. I am still very, very confident that we will finish at the right end of the table.

“We are still looking at the top two and we will keep pushing on.
