Penalty miss was pivotal - Ferguson
Wayne Rooney nor Park Ji-Sung could find the net once Carrick had failed from the spot. "It was a bad performance considering the chances and possession we had," said Ferguson. "Maybe if we had got the penalty just before half-time it would have made a difference but in saying that we were too frivolous with the chances we had. "It has been a long time out of the top flight for them and you cannot deny them their victory."
