Fergie frustrated by defensive blunders

Published 4 Comments

Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson bemoaned his side's defending as they came out on top in a 4-3 thriller against Reading to go three points clear at the top of the Barclays Premier League.

After the game Ferguson was in no doubt as to the defensive display from his side that could have cost them a vital victory in the title race.

"I don't know what to make of it, the first half the defending was the worst this season, absolutely no doubt about that," he said. "Nobody competed for the crosses, in fairness Reading have a great delivery of the ball - the boy (Nicky) Shorey whips them in, fantastic crosses but we should be doing better than that. It was terrible."
