Tariq Lamptey's cross led to West Brom's first-half own goal.

Tariq Lamptey admitted that failure to make the most of their first-half dominance cost Albion against West Brom.

Graham Potter's side led at the break through Jake Livermore's own goal and had further opportunities to stretch their lead.

But the Baggies bounced back in the second period and levelled late on through former Crawley loanee Karlan Grant.

Lamptey said, "We had some good chances in the game and we needed to take more of them. West Brom are a good team and they showed that in the second half when they scored but overall it was disappointing.

White's West Brom reaction

"We pushed quite hard in the first half and we might have got another goal but you have to look at the positives and move on to the next game.

"We played some attractive football and on another day we get the goals we deserve and win by two or three goals."

Lamptey began the match at right back and it was his cross which led to Livermore putting through his own net but he finished it in a midfield role as Albion tried to get control in midfield in the second half. 

"I don't mind where I play, I just want to do a job for the team. I was up against Grady Diangana who is a top player.

"That's the same every week in the Premier League, you have to keep learning and keep improving. That's my job."
