'It was frustrating, we didn't test the keeper. We had good opportunities, some good balls into the box but their keeper did not have too much to do.
'We gave them a helping hand in the goal we gave away. We don't score too many so when you go a goal behind you know it will be a tough afternoon.
'We seem to always make it difficult for ourselves, it was a good opportunity and we let it slip by.
'We feel they were penalties but there's no point going on about it, it just sounds like sour grapes. Sometimes they go for you, sometimes they don't.
'Credit to [Matthew] Upson and [James] Collins, I thought they defended well, but the balls were quite easy to defend; we didn't get behind them, we have to mix our game up a bit.
'Even when you are not quite at it, you take a point and we haven't managed to do that.
'Last season we lost 20-odd games. If you turn some of them into draws, it makes a hell of a difference, it seems to be win or bust for us.
'It's been a while since we've won back-to-back games, we just can't quite do it.
'We said after the Blackburn game, can we kick on? We just can't quite do it. It's been a problem at the club for a long time.
'We don't like losing games, particularly at home and we're hugely disappointed with another defeat. I don't think we deserved the defeat today but we've not managed to do it. Three home defeats in a row - we have to do better than that.
'I can't really fault the players' attitude and desire, we just lacked a cutting edge. We got in good positions but their keeper had little to do.
'The fans stayed with us and, of course, they are going to be disappointed at the end.
'It's been a struggle for this club in the Premier League, we want to kick on but we can't seem to do it. We have to work on it, change it.
'There are no gimmees in this league but this was an opportunity to win and move up that table and we didn't take it.
