Mowbray accepts cup setback

West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Mowbray had no complaints after seeing his side lose 3-1 at Burnley in an FA Cup fourth round replay. The Baggies were well beaten at Turf Moor, with Mowbray's evening made even worse by loan striker Jay Simpson suffering a hamstring injury. "It looks like Jay has a slight strain on his hamstring, which obviously doesn't help the cause, but we're going to have to deal with it," Mowbray admitted. "Let's give Burnley credit. They worked extremely hard, they got the goals and obviously we missed a few chances. "We started to control the game and then found ourselves 1-0 down to a great strike. "The strikers of Burnley showed great desire and quality around the final third, which was probably the difference. "We lacked the clinical touch and those problems have been around us all season."
