Newcastle United's Under 21 coach Willie Donachie says the Magpies 2-1 defeat to Manchester United was because of poor defending.
Willie Donachie: “It was disappointing to lose, but we lost Xisco and Romain, which weakened us a lot as they were our two experienced players.
“Romain picked up an ankle knock, and Xisco has a knock too.”
“We didn’t deserve to lose, but if you aren’t strong at set-plays, and really brave in their box, you won’t win."
