Highlights.....not for the faint of heart
The second goal was wholly avoidable according to Jay Bothroyd. [Sky Sports]
Sean Dyche sums up the loss:
“For 40 minutes we were doing very well, I thought, against a top side. You know you have to keep it tight at places like this and you have to work for the counter, which we did. It is finding those killer moments - obviously that is the story of the season so far, before and with me. That defined that period and then, obviously, a soft goal from our point of view, only yardages, the back four just got a bit open for the first time. It was good from them, that is what they do, they slide and play quick passes into the box.” [Echo]
