Liam Ridgewell admits Newcastle United's strikers were too much for West Bromwich Albion for Sunday's defeat.

Ridgewell admits Albion struggled to cope with Newcastle's strike force of two-goal Papiss Cisse and Demba Ba.

He said: "The back four or back five pride ourselves on not letting goals in and we take it personally when we do let them in.

"We will be working on that and making sure we get back to our recent ways of not conceding goals.

"But I think Cisse and Demba Ba are good players and they caught us out a couple of times."
