Jonny Evans has voiced his frustration over dropping points this weekend and taken the blame upon himself for Birmingham’s goal.
“We were disappointed at being behind because of the way we played in the first half,” said Evans. “I knew we were in for a tough game and when they got the goal it gave them something to hang on to. We were disappointed to lose a goal from a set piece – I was a bit too deep and played them onside. But we put a bit of pressure on them in the second half and thankfully got back in it.”
Evans didn’t agree with Mark Clattenburg’s decision to send off Darren Fletcher, and reckons we might have got something more out of the game with eleven men.
“Considering the challenges going in during the game it was harsh for Darren to get a second yellow,” admitted Evans. “The momentum was with us at the time and if he had stayed on the pitch I think we would have created more chances. You’re always going to drop points here and there, but we want to go on from here and try and win as many games as we can.”
