The midfielder told the club's website: "I think you could see by the performance, the lads gave it everything. We were just lacking those clear-cut chances. I'm proud of the team, we dug in deep.
"We huffed and puffed and had a few chances from set pieces, it's a bitter blow to lose to a set piece. We gave 100% and I think we were on top late on in the second half.
"We'd worked all week on our shape, trying to force them out wide and then score off a set piece early on ourselves. But we dug in and worked until the end. Who knows, one of those half-chances could have gone in."
The result leaves West Brom three points clear of the relegation zone with two games left to play.
