West Brom boss Clarke refuses to condemn Odemwingie after red card

West Bromwich Albion boss Steve Clarke refused to condemn Peter Odemwingie after his red card during defeat at Fulham.

Clarke refused to use the dismissal of Odemwingie as an excuse and was more content with how his side performed after half-time.

"We are all human, everybody has got emotions," he said.

"He thought he had a free-kick against him, the red mist obviously came down and he will take his punishment.

"He will get his three-game ban and the club have got a disciplinary process we will go through, and we move on. In football it happens, people get sent off.

"I was happier with the second-half performance. I think we approached the game well second half and we tried to cause a few problems which I think we succeeded in.

"We spoke at half-time and said if we could make it 2-1 we could make it an uncomfortable afternoon for Fulham, but it didn't work out like that."
