Steve Clarke admits that he is unhappy at seeing his side lose to a late goal for the second week in succession.

West Bromwich Albion head coach Steve Clarke has expressed his disappointment after seeing his side slip to their second late defeat in as many matches.

Last weekend Edin Dzeko struck in stoppage time to give Manchester City all three points at the expense of the Baggies, while today Papiss Cisse found the net with a few seconds remaining to give Newcastle United a 2-1 victory.

"I certainly didn't think it would be a game we were going to lose. I thought we had good control in the first half and created good chances," said Clarke.

"I felt we were unfortunate to be behind at half-time. It was a horrible moment, a big deflection in injury time and it's in the back of the net.

"After the late goals we conceded last week [in the defeat by Manchester City], it's hard to take."

Clarke's team are currently eighth in the Premier League table.
