Colchester United manager Geraint Williams was not too disappointed after seeing his side's impressive unbeaten home run ended by West Bromwich Albion.
The Baggies edged a 2-1 victory at Layer Road, handing the U's their first home reverse in 15 games, a run stretching back to mid-August.
Williams said: "It is a long time since we have suffered the feeling of losing at home and we are naturally very disappointed to lose.
"West Brom are a strong side, but we didn't do ourselves any favours by conceding the first goal from a set-piece. We hate conceding goals from corners and someone obviously wasn't doing their job right.
"We then committed the cardinal error of conceding a second goal almost straightaway, when giving the ball away and being caught on the break.
"But the attitude of the lads after this was excellent. We had chances to get an equaliser, so it was disappointing to finally see our excellent home record ended."
