Neil Howarth: Felt the draw was a fair result

Town were second best for much of the afternoon but claimed a point thanks to Marlon Pack's double, with James Beattie also grabbing a brace for the hosts.

"It's always difficult coming to a place like this and Accrington showed that they are fighting for their survival and you could tell that with the effort they put in, they want to stay in this division," Howarth said.

"I am disappointed we haven't shown enough quality to win the game and we didn't play our best stuff until we went 2-1 behind. Then I felt we could have nicked it at the end but, with our overall performance, we didn't really deserve that.

"Both their goals were set-pieces which was disappointing for us but our second was a set-piece and it was a good header from Marlon. It would have been nice to get a third but it wasn't to be."

However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

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.
