West Brom taxi incident: Jonny Evans & Gareth Barry start FA Cup tie

Pardew ‘wanted to make statement’ by stripping Evans of West Brom captaincy

Alan Pardew answered questions over his future at West Brom after the pressure on his job grew further as they were knocked out of the FA Cup at home to Southampton.

Evans and Barry were named in manager Alan Pardew's starting line-up for the 15:00 GMT match at The Hawthorns.

"I believe if you had asked us and the Sheffield Wednesday manager, we'd have gone to penalties".

Jonson Clarke-Harris, who hit the woodwork in the second half, grabbed a consolation goal for Coventry with 13 minutes remaining as the 1987 winners turn their attentions to promotion from the fourth tier.

A source said: "Police have not accused them of taking the taxi with the intention of keeping it".

Jake Livermore and Boaz Myhill also admitted they had broken a team curfew when they took a taxi from Barcelona city centre at 5.30am on Thursday.

Pardew said: "They broke a curfew and that's unacceptable and I feel a bit let down by that".

'It was a problem in terms of selection to go with my strongest team given the events of last week but Jonny was actually very good given the circumstances.

Joyce warned that any pressure on the Nationals to dump him "locks people in as they lock-in behind the leader". Mr Joyce said he would try to fix his relationship with Mr Turnbull, but again stared down calls to resign.

"It's about efficiency because when you lose and you said we deserve more like the first half against Liverpool I don't want to talk about excuses but I think today we create problems, the first half we played a little bit better, the second half we were always unsafe on the counter attack". That's all I'm going to comment on the rest of it.

Should the club wield the axe down on Pards, then they face a real dilemma.who on earth would they bring in as his replacement at this pivotal stage of the season as they bid to survive the dreaded drop down to the Championship?

"I think we need to kind of make sure everything is geared to the 11 games we have left in the league and this little cup run, which could turn into a big cup run".

Last night the four said in a statement: "We would like to take this opportunity to apologise".

"I thought our fans were terrific today", said Pardew.
