Huddersfield were worthy winners – West Brom boss Carlos Corberan

Disappointed Albion boss Carlos Corberan felt his side could not show Huddersfield "their best level" and admitted Neil Warnock's visitors were worthy of their win.

The Baggies signed off for the international break with a first Hawthorns defeat of the season as the Terriers left for Yorkshire with a first win of the new campaign courtesy of a 96th-minute winner.

Jack Rudoni struck as Huddersfield caught Albion on the counter-attack just seconds after substitute Josh Maja spurned a gilt-edged chance to make it 2-1 to the hosts. John Swift equalised shortly after half-time through a counter-attack of Albion's own.

Corberan was left frustrated to sign off with a defeat and no chance to respond due to the international break. The head coach admitted, thought, that his former side were worthy victors.

Asked about the way his side lost at the death, Corberan replied: "Especially when you don't have another game to compete in in the next 15 days.

"Now we need to digest the feeling, keep this feeling in the next 15 days until we next have the opportunity to play a football game.

"We lost a good opportunity to win three points but we didn't win them because Huddersfield, for me, in many moments of the game were better than us.
