Hughes: Questions winner

North End captain John Mousinho scored the only goal of the game in first-half stoppage time.

It came from a deep corner from Jack King and the skipper found space to head across goal and through the legs of goalkeeper Scott Flinders, who four minutes earlier had produced a superb save to keep out Nicky Wroe's penalty.

After a fifth home loss in a row, Hughes said: "It just didn't go for us did it? Yes it was disappointing in the way we conceded the goal.

"Scotty made a great save from the penalty, then we give away a corner and they score form it - very disappointing.

"It would be nice if we were beaten by something good, some well-worked goal. We beat ourselves, it's the fundamental things and you have to make sure you are hard to break down and don't give things to the opposition."

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
