The unbeaten home record is still intact, but the Baggies really should have been picking up three points instead of the one that saw the team drop down the Championship table to fifth spot.
It was the inability to defend which upset the boss the most, there certainly was no problem up front as the Baggies raced into a two goal lead by the 40 minute mark with strikes from Diomansy Kamara, by then they looked to be cruising to another three points.
But the visitors had other ideas and hit back with a goal either side of half time through Damion Stewart and Kevin Gallen. Kamara struck back to grab what looked to be the winner but Marc Nygaard silenced the home fans with an equaliser seven minutes from time.
Mowbray told the Birmingham Mail: 'We created plenty of chances which was pleasing but it's probably the first time I can say since I've come that we weren't solid at the back. I have felt very safe at the back over the last three or four weeks but I couldn't say that on this occasion.'
'We conceded the goals at very poor times - we conceded one on 47 minutes in the first half and then after the restart,' he said.
'Whether we didn't work hard enough to stop them putting balls in or didn't defend the ball better in the box I don't know. That's football. I like to look at the positives, I am very aware of the negatives and I will be looking to address that.
'This game is about scoring goals at one end and keeping them out at the other and we have achieved half of that. We're obviously disappointed - it will be interesting to see what John (Gregory) makes of it. I think they'll be pretty happy to get a point.'
