Hughes shrugs off late loss

14 December 2008 10:57
Manchester City boss Mark Hughes felt that his side had done enough to earn a draw before they conceded a last-minute goal in their 1-0 defeat at home to Everton. Tim Cahill's last-gasp header gave the Toffees all three points and left the Citizens still far too close to the relegation places for comfort. Hughes said: "Ideally we would have preferred three more points, but we have games coming up where we need to start putting points on the board. "We can't dwell on it too much. We have got to get on with it with Christmas coming up. "To lose at the end is disappointing and we need to be better in those situations. We just switched off and they capitalised on that. "I do not think either side did enough to deserve the victory. "Everton got people behind the ball and managed to stop us playing our type of game."
