Hodgson said: "We gave them three points. The morale is low because, despite pressure, we're not getting the results.
"We are in a relegation fight, but then we've been in one for a long time - and I expect we'll be in one for a long time to come.
All defeats are painful but this felt a bit harsh. We didn't play well in the first half but I don't know what more we could have done in the second half. We plugged away and we got an equaliser, but then we were mugged for a second time with their winning goal, another counter-attack.
"It is very frustrating for fans who keep coming to the Hawthorns and see us lose."
