O'Hara's hurt

Jamie O'Hara admits any glance at the Premier League table is hurting at the moment.

A win at Wigan on Sunday would have lifted us from 18th to 11th but Maynor Figueroa's late, late header at the JJB left us in the bottom three.

A draw looked odd-on against the league's form team but midfielder Jamie admitted the 91st minute winner left the squad thinking ‘here we go again'.

"Late goals have killed us lately, we've had three games now (Newcastle, West Brom, Wigan) where it's happened and those points could be valuable at the end of the season," said Jamie.

"We started well at Wigan and I thought if we could have nicked a goal in the first 20 minutes it would have settled us down.

"That didn't happen and it turned into a bit of a stalemate but to concede so late finished us. There is no coming back from that.

"It hurts. You travel home and you are thinking 'it's happened again'.

"It's so disappointing because it wasn't a great game, we could have come away with three points but looked set for point and Wigan are the form team, so a point at the JJB would have been okay, but that goal killed us.

"We're all gutted but we have to pick ourselves up.

"We shouldn't be in this position and we have to starting picking results up now."
