David Flitcroft: We couldn't handle Bristol City's strikers

Flitcroft's men have been in fine form and came into the match on a six-game winning streak but this setback leaves them fourth from bottom, and just three points clear of their conquerors at Ashton Gate.

Flitcroft said: "I knew our great run had to end somewhere but the way it ended surprised me. The goals we conceded were very poor.

"We couldn't defend set-pieces and it is back to the training ground in that respect, and we couldn't handle City's strikers.

"Jon Stead and Steven Davies out-muscled us for most of the game but we will dust ourselves down and come again.

"I have an honest bunch of players and they showed great spirit after going 5-1 down, so I'm sure this will just prove an off-day.

"The way the run ended and the way we were dominated led me to some concerns but it's a case of trust now.

"We didn't get near them and we didn't compete but we'll put it right for an important game against Bolton."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
