Roeder Blasts Critics

Roeder Blasts Critics

Glenn Roeder's side has now just conceded six goals in their last 12 matches, remarkable considering how much flak the defence has taken from the likes of pundit Mark Lawrenson.

The manager said: 'All I ever ask for is fairness. If the defence is not playing well, then it is acceptable to be criticised.

'But when the defence starts playing well, hopefully people recognise that and give them the praise they deserve.

'Tonight with the help of some good saves by Shay Given, we have kept another clean sheet.

'But overall after what has happened to us so far this year, we fully deserve it.'
