West Brom boss Steve Clarke will not compromise his attacking beliefs ahead of Sunday's trip to Newcastle - the club at which he took his first steps on the coaching ladder.

Clarke saw the Baggies' gamble on trying to win last weekend's home Barclays Premier League clash with Manchester City backfire as Edin Dzeko nicked a stoppage-time winner.

"I think what I said after the game could have been construed in different ways - but I don't regret that we tried to win the game," he said. "I regretted that we didn't get something out of the game but that is a big difference."
