George Boyd's well-taken goal barely 30 seconds after the half-time interval provided a rare moment of quality in a scrappy encounter.

Robins believed his side had turned a corner when they beat West Yorkshire rivals Leeds before the international break, but their sixth home defeat of the campaign leaves them just points above the relegation zone.

"We weren't good enough," Robins said. "I don't think it was a great game by any stretch of the imagination.

"We restricted them to very little, but it's a difficult formation to play against, how they play it and with the quality of players they've got, they're obviously up there for a reason."

Robins also complained that Town striker James Vaughan had been fouled in the build-up to Boyd's winner, but he was reluctant to blame that for the defeat.

"There was a real push in his back, but we can't blame incidents like that, we've got to come out and be better than this," he added.

"We go to Bolton on Tuesday and have seven games left. It's an interesting end to the season."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
