Defeat was harsh says Claude Puel while Neil Warnock thinks his side deserved victory. Manager comments

Claude Puel

"We managed our game without conceding chances until the goal at the end of the game. It's harsh for my players because they gave their best and we deserved another result. It is not a fair result but it is football and we were unlucky.

"We missed a penalty in our good period, we needed to score but a draw today was the minimum and losing is a big disappointment."


Neil Warnock

"I'm really pleased and I'm proud of the lads because I thought we played some good stuff. I thought we deserved it today, we got the late goal, but I thought we shaded it a bit.

"If we had a little bit more clinical finishing in the last third, I think we could have to put it to bed. But all credit to them, it took a penalty save to keep us in the game.

“I can’t tell you how much we’ve improved since August and September,” he said. “And I think we can get better now, especially with one or two additions in January.

“I think we can give everybody a run for their money. We’ve got great spirit and we can play a bit - people forget that!”
