Paul Robinson believes a draw would have more accurately reflected the balance of play against Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.
Paul Robinson believes a draw would have more accurately reflected the balance of play against Aston Villa on Tuesday evening.After falling behind shortly before half-time, Jermain Defoe looked like he had rescued at least a point from the contest at Villa Park, but Martin Laursen rose unchallenged five minutes from time to head a winner for the home side.
"We are disappointed, I don't think either team played to its full potential and a draw would have been a fair result," reasoned Robbo afterwards.
"There wasn't that many chances, they had the better of the first half and I think we had the better of the second. To concede in the manner we did again is something we've got to look at," added the goalkeeper on the matter of both Villa goals resulting from set pieces.
"Villa are a dangerous team from set plays and we knew that, I was coming for a lot of balls to help our defenders out as much as I could, but they had two free headers. We need to work again on it because it is happening too often.
"We are making progress slowly and going the right way in the table. I think we can still finish strongly, there is a long way to go and the performances of the team have picked up. With a little bit of luck and cutting out silly mistakes we will get the results."
