Pascal Gross has been involved in six goals so far this season (two goals, four assists).

Pascal Gross was left scratching his head as to how Albion didn't take at least a point from last night's match against Crystal Palace.

Roy Hodgson's men snatched all three points when Christian Benteke found the back of the net in the last minute of the game.

“We're very disappointed to lose it like that,” Gross reflected. “We had the better chances and we deserved to draw, if not win.

“We were sloppy in the first half, but in the second half we played better football. Football is about goals though and we weren't able to find the decisive one.”

Potter reflects on painful defeat

Chances certainly weren't at a premium for the hosts on who mustered 25 in total, with five on target.

“We've had a lot of chances, but we need to be better at finishing off moves. We are getting into good areas and making them positive situations, but it doesn't mean anything without that end product.

“We saw against Palace that we couldn't quite find the all important second goal and that was the story of our season.

“We have to realise where we are in the table – we're in a dangerous area, we need to work hard to earn our wins. It's not easy, we need to stick together and look forward now to Saturday.”
