Disappointing For Burley

Disappointing For Burley

Southampton manager George Burley was disappointed with the defeat to Stoke.

It was Saints second defeat in a week, knocking their promotion hopes even further.

Burley told the official site: 'It was very disappointing. Stoke were hard to break down but we took the lead and were looking to build on it.

'But then we conceded from a set-play. You give people players to mark but the lad was left on his own.

'Then for their second Jhon Viafara got a knock in the face and stopped. We all stopped and they played a ball through the centre and scored.

'I don't we did enough going forward, especially in the second half. We were not really under pressure and were looking to win the game.

'We had a lot of passing and movement but we did not get enough crosses and shots which is how you win games.'

He concluded: 'We are going to have to work hard to get back in the top six but we can do it.'

I think that could be the end of your promotion hopes!

No, be positive, a couple of wins would put us right in the mix again!

Correct, it's all about form, we just have to find it!

Of course you can make the top 6, but so can Stoke after this result. I actually think your home form will get you over the line but pray that you don't meet Sunderland in the play-offs. In a final both sides have a chance but over 2 games not so easy. Good Luck, Pompey await the outcome with mixed feelings.
