Pardew: Another set play goal, it's just too many

Pardew: Another set play goal, it's just too many

Southampton boss Alan Pardew admitted that his side are too vulnerable from set-pieces, as it was a goal from a corner that sent the Saints crashing at Swindon.

Sean Morrison's ninth minute headed goal separated the two sides, and the former West Ham boss said it's unacceptable to keep conceding goals in this fashion.

Speaking to the Daily Echo, Pardew said: "It`s another set play goal - it`s just too many," he said. "We`re still lacking in my opinion a dominant person in the box to keep clearing our lines.

"Again there was just too many chances from set plays and just balls in our box."
