But Baggies No.2 reveals disappointment at late leveller

Albion number two Kevin Keen believes the Baggies did enough to be through to fourth round in the FA Cup following yesterday’s 1-1 draw at QPR.

Shane Long looked to have booked Albion’s passage in to the fourth round but Kieron Dyer’s injury time strike forced a replay.

“We’re a little bit disappointed, we felt we did well in the game, we played well, especially in the second half, created chances,” said Keen.

"We felt the game was going to peter out but we slipped up at the end. 

“But these things happen in football and, along with QPR, we’re in the draw for the next round.

“We’re going to take them back to The Hawthorns and have a real go at them there.

“What happened in the last 30 seconds can happen in any game.

“Today it happened and an old friend of mine, Kieron Dyer, who I spent many years with at West Ham, popped up with a goal.

“We’re a fraction disappointed but we’ve come and performed and the squad has done well considering we’ve picked up a couple of injuries.

“We’ve got a lot of positives to take from today.”
