Players feel responsible for Clarke exit

West Brom caretaker manager Keith Downing says himself and the players "feel responsible" for the "shock" sacking of Baggies boss Steve Clarke.

Clarke was dismissed just hours after Saturday's 1-0 defeat at Cardiff - their fourth loss in a row.

Downing admits he is not the long-term replacement for Clarke and says he will "smooth out the pathway" for the new manager.
