Swansea boss Michael Laudrup slammed referee Lee Mason after he disallowed a last-gasp effort from Roland Lamah as his side went down 2-1 at West Brom.

Replays showed that the ball struck Baggies goalkeeper Ben Foster and defender Gareth McAuley before substitute Lamah put the ball in the net. "How on earth can you disallow a goal when the ball comes off an opponent? It's like giving an offside after a throw-in! Everybody knows you cannot be offside after a throw-in," Laudrup said.

Luke Moore put Swansea in front, only for Romelu Lukaku to equalise with his 13th goal of the campaign before an own goal from Jonathan de Guzman earned Albion victory.

Baggies boss Steve Clarke felt Albion deserved the win which kept alive their hopes of securing a European spot. "We got a lucky break but when you put the effort, energy and quality we did into that game, I think we earned that little break."
