It was always going to be tough today given the opposition we were facing and the amount of key players we had missing, but we gave it our all and were simply undone by a few moments of quality.

There’s positives to take from this, but we MUST start picking up points sooner rather than later – with our next league game against Cardiff undoubtedly our biggest game of the season to date.

There’s a lingering frustration given it was one of those games where we could’ve easily got something had Rafa been allowed to sign a quality attacker or two – something that’s continuing to cost us given 4 of our 5 relegation rivals picked up points today.

Here’s how the table now looks after today’s results: Burnley won the relegation six-pointer over Fulham and Cardiff and Huddersfield drew 0-0 in another huge game at the bottom, but it was Southampton’s 2-1 win at Leicester that result we could’ve done without today.

But, it’s hard to have too many complaints.

It was great to see us show fighting spirit and actually come into the game from 1-0 down given we’ve failed to gain a single the last 11 times we’ve conceded first in the league, but our inability to kick on after that cost us.

Atsu, Yedlin and Perez gave us an outlet and got into good positions in attack, but they flattered to deceive more often than not, showing exactly why Rafa wants the likes of Almiron to give us some flare and quality in and around Rondon.
