The Baggies were the dominate side with twice the number of attempts as Brentford last weekend but they were ultimately left frustrated with a 1-1 draw.
Speaking after the game, Phillips said that the team are distraught by the late equaliser from the visiting team but they need to move on with every point crucial towards their aim of gaining promotion, he said: “In the first half we created plenty of chances and we were playing well. It was a bit of a kick in the teeth that we only take a point from the game but it’s another point towards our final target. The most disappointing thing is that we had so many chances.
