Mixed feelings for Hodgson

19 March 2011 08:00
West Bromwich Albion boss Roy Hodgson seemed to be in two minds about the result after seeing his side draw 2-2 with Arsenal. Arsenal found themselves two goals down just before the hour mark as Peter Odemwingie capitalised on a mix-up between Manuel Almunia and Sebastien Squillaci to add to Steven Reid's early header. Arsenal managed to stage a comeback with goals in the 70th minute from Andrey Arshavin and 78th from Robin van Persie, but they were unable to notch a third before the final whistle. "We are upset we couldn't hang on because it was a sterling effort by the players, but we were playing against a very good team," Hodgson said. "With the questions they ask of you in terms of defensive organisation, you are always going to be hard pressed not to concede a goal. "It is disappointing to be 2-0 up and not get a victory, but on the other hand, it would be wrong of me to suggest that Arsenal got anything from this game they didn't deserve."
