No Hiding Place For Roeder

No Hiding Place For Roeder

Glenn Roeder: 'We got a chasing in the first half. I won't disguise that. It was not to do with fitness. We had four or five players who were not on their game today.

'Consequently against a team of that quality, we could not get the ball. We never won the ball in central areas.

'We got punished. I can't disguise that, they were worth their lead at half time. They made changes, we made changes and they were more spirited in the second half.

'There was an awful lot of hard work in the last half hour. The main pluses would be when that third goal went in, it would have been very easy for any group of players to let their heads go down.

'They didn't do that. We picked ourselves up. We got our reward with a couple of goals. It would have been nice to have got a third to have stayed unbeaten this year.


'We gave them too much start. They were a quality team. They had some excellent players. They had two or three who were outstanding on the ball.'
