“we didn’t deserve a point today. I wouldn’t say it was maturity; it was focus in the key moment. Two set pieces, one goal 10 seconds after we equalize, these are goals that should not happen.”
“We weren’t good enough at second balls and 50 – 50s, the sort of things you need to do to win football matches. The best player was David and he conceded four goals.”
