Cape Town - West Brom manager Alan Pardew was disappointed that his team were unable to beat Everton on Tuesday after creating numerous chances to score the winner.

The Baggies played out a goalless draw with the Toffees at the Hawthorns, which still leaves them without a Premier League victory since August. They are second from bottom in the standings, two points clear of Swansea City.

Pardew believes his charges were unfortunate not to clinch three points against Sam Allardyce's side, considering the quality crosses the wide players produced throughout the game.

"It’s not often you see that many balls flashed into the box without contact," said Pardew, according to the Express & Star.

"We were putting quality balls into the box from both sides.

"Phillips and Dawson really added to us down the right side. On the left hand side Gibbs and Brunt were delivering first-class stuff.

"Nine times out of 10 you win that game, we just couldn’t find that moment.

"We missed a couple of chances early on, I don’t know if that affected the strikers. It’s moments like that (Rondon miss) that can change it. If that one had gone in it might have been quite different.

"We were definitely in great shape for it. I couldn’t ask the rest of the team to do more than they did. Everton are on a decent run and defended great, as you would imagine."
