McAllister: Defeat a freak

18 Aug 2008 - 15:14:17

Leeds United manager Gary McAllister is hoping that the 2-0 home defeat by Oldham Athletic will prove to be something of a freak.

The Whites failed to impress in their first home game of the campaign, but McAllister was not too worried about what the result may mean in the long term.

He told the Yorkshire Post: "In football there are times when things don't go well.

"Sometimes you hold your hands up and say you've been outfought, or that the opposition did something tactically that we couldn't cope with, or that they were technically better. But I don't think it was down to any of that.

"I just don't think we had any players who were at it, but I've got to be thinking that it was a bit of a freak. I've got to look at it like that.

"Things have been excellent in the last two or three weeks and in the latter stages of pre-season.

"We had a good start at Scunthorpe and backed it up with a decent performance at Chester, but we dropped off the pace on Saturday."
