Hughes unhappy at City draw
26 Oct 2009 - 08:47:46
Manchester City manager Mark Hughes slammed his side's defending in their 2-2 draw at home to Fulham, the Citizens having thrown away a two-goal lead.
City looked on course for three points thanks to goals from Joleon Lescott and Martin Petrov, but the visitors hit back through Damien Duff and Clint Dempsey to secure a point at Eastlands.
A frustrated Hughes said: "We were 2-0 to the good and we should have seen the game out, but unfortunately we allowed them back in the game and given them a lift.
"Then it was how we dealt with balls into the box and a guy in Dempsey who is acknowledged as good in the air - we haven't dealt with it.
"We've been caught out a couple of times this season and it seems to be prevalent this year, not just with us, but with quite a few of the teams around us.
"We started really well in terms of our defensive work, but we have conceded goals and we are working hard on that. There are always elements of our game we need to focus on.
"Credit to them, because probably the two games we've had the most difficulty with this season here have been against Fulham. They get organised and make it difficult."
