West Brom's Scharner accepts blame for Everton winner

West Bromwich Albion midfielder Paul Scharner admits he's to blame for Everton's winner on the weekend.

Scharner’s failure to head away a cross four minutes from time gave Everton their winner on Sunday and upset boss Roy Hodgson.

Scharner said: “It was an absolute mis-header by me. Me and Billy Jones went together for the same ball and no one took responsibility. In the end I went, and it was just a mis-header.

“We were disappointing in every department. We couldn’t get the tempo high, we couldn’t create chances and, of course, we should not have conceded like that.”
