Clarke rues worst performance

12 May 2013 20:09

West Brom manager Steve Clarke admitted that his side had failed to get going in their 4-0 defeat against Norwich, branding it their worst performance of the season.

Strikes from Robert Snodgrass, Grant Holt, Jonny Howson and an own goal from Gareth McAuley condemned West Brom to an emphatic defeat and left Clarke disappointed.

The Scot said: "It was definitely the worst performance of the season by a considerable distance.

"It's not the normal performance you expect from West Bromwich Albion."

West Brom, who will still finish in the top half regardless of their result against Manchester United on the final day of the Premier League season, lacked any real urgency against a side who needed to win to secure their safety.

Clarke admitted that his team deserved to come away with nothing from the game.

"We worked as hard before as we have in every game, and prepared the same as we have. The performance at Manchester City in midweek was good but this we were nowhere near it. It was Norwich's day not ours," he added.

"I didn't think that Norwich had a team that could cause us so many problems. With three front players I thought we would cause them problems, but we didn't."

Clarke also revealed that wantaway striker Peter Odemwingie will not be at the club next term, continuing: "I don't think he will be here next season."
