“Our preparation to build the attacks was up there with the best we have but when you get past the box you need someone to find those moments of quality to create goals and assist goals and then to go and score them.

“That, to me, today, was a 3 or 4-0 game. When you don’t get the second goal you leave yourself vulnerable at the back and we haven’t defended one situation well in the second half and we’ve paid for that.”
