Manager Roy Keane believes his side shouldn’t have had a goal disallowed, and felt that decision was the turning point in the match.

Stern John began celebrating what he thought was his first goal for the club, only for his joy to be cut short by the ref who saw a push, although Keano says both sets of players looked as if they knew it was a legitimate goal.

He said: ‘I always judge the reaction of both sets of players, but the only person who thought it was a foul was the referee. Saying it was harsh would be an understatement and it was the turning point in the game.’

But the Blues boss admits his side were far from their best, although they should have taken at least one of their other chances.

Keane continued: ‘I don’t think we played that well. We had some good chances but the fact we didn’t take them was very frustrating and I’m getting fed up of using that word.

‘We’ve got to start putting the ball in the back of the net and I don’t just mean my strikers. I need my players to step up to the plate and take a sniff of a chance.’

But he did have some praise for his defence after another clean sheet: ‘The only positive is that we kept another clean sheet. Our defensive record is outstanding at the moment.’
