RADEK FEELING THE BLUES

Radek Cerny is finding it hard to look on the bright side after we conceded a last gasp equaliser to deny us victory over champions Manchester United on Saturday.

Radek Cerny is finding it hard to look on the bright side after we conceded a last gasp equaliser to deny us victory over champions Manchester United on Saturday.

Dimitar Berbatov’s 20th minute opener kept us in the lead until the fourth minute of stoppage time at the end of the game, when Carlos Tevez and Michael Dawson dived in for Nani's corner and the ball flew in at the near post.

Radek knows there are plenty of positives to take from our performance, but having come so close to a first win over Sir Alex Ferguson’s men in nearly seven years, our goalkeeper was left desperately deflated.

He said: “Everyone was so frustrated after the game because there were only seconds to go and then they scored. I guess that’s just football but I can’t believe it.

“We played well in the first-half, we were organised, and we scored a goal. In the second half, United tried to be more attacking but didn’t have many chances until the last minute.

“I know we were playing against one of the best teams in the world and maybe I would have thought a draw was a good result before the game, but we were so close to winning.

“If we had won, it would have been one of my best games, but all I can think about is the goal they scored now.”

We now have a week to prepare for a trip to Derby County next Saturday, and Radek has warned against any complacency against the Barclays Premier League’s bottom club.

He added: “Maybe people will think that Derby is an easy game, but we will have to play so different against them than we did against United.”
