Burley accepts defeat

11 Dec 2006 - 08:58:51

Southampton boss George Burley had few complaints after seeing his side crash to their first defeat in eight league games, a 2-1 reverse at lowly Southend United.

Grzegorz Rasiak's 14th goal of the season wasn't enough to earn the Saints anything from their trip to Roots Hall, but Burley accepted the loss was merited.

He said: "The boys have had a great run over the last seven games, winning the last four, but this league is like that.

"We over-elaborated and you have to put the chances away and we did not do that.

"Southend scrapped away and, at the end of the day, perhaps they deserved to win it. We had a number of chances but we did not get total control of the game."
