West Brom were left frustrated by Cardiff's late equaliser.

West Brom have played down claims of a dressing room bust-up in the wake of their dramatic Barclays Premier League draw with Cardiff.

Tempers flared after Saturday's 3-3 draw with the Bluebirds at the Hawthorns after Mats Daehli snatched a last-gasp equaliser for the visitors.

However, the Baggies have insisted the incident was nothing out of the ordinary and has been dealt with.

A club spokesman said: "Tensions were understandably running high in the dressing room after Cardiff's late equaliser, but the incident has been sensationalised in the media.

"What happened is not uncommon in a dressing room and shows that the players care.

"The players involved have apologised. The club has drawn a line under the matter and is now fully focussing on Saturday's important game at Norwich."
