Saunders: Admitted side got lucky

Matt Ritchie gave the hosts the lead in the eighth minute only for midfielder Danny Hollands' to put through his own net two minutes later.

Doncaster were twice rescued by the woodwork before the half-time whistle and an honest Saunders admitted: "We got battered at times.

"But we dug in to get a draw when we were nowhere near our best.

"Swindon got lots and lots of balls into our box but we defended well and our goalkeeper had the most to do all season, and the woodwork helped us as well.

"Swindon were favourites to go up before the season started and we wasted opportunities early in the game as a few of us struggled, but we pulled through."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
