Fulham boss Roy Hodgson believed Fulham deserved to take something from the Hawthorns after Roman Bendar’s second-half strike extended their disappointing run of form.

He said: “I did think had we taken one of the many chances that came our way, we wouldn’t have been trying again to come back from one nil down.

“We tried very hard, had chances again. It wasn’t to be and at the moment we are going through one of those spells where I can’t really criticise the players for what they are doing on the field – their effort, quality of play even.

“It is not getting the results and that is a very frustrating situation to find yourselves in.

“It sounds strange but I can’t be unhappy with the performance. I am only unhappy with the result. In this league every point dropped is a very important point dropped.”
