Joe Dunne: We deserved at least a point

Joe Dunne: We deserved at least a point

The game's only goal came eight minutes after the break courtesy of James Collins, who weaved his way through the U's defence before slamming a low shot past Sam Walker.

But Dunne felt his charges deserved at least a point and said: "I don't agree that it was the right result.

"When they got the goal we had to go for it and the game became a lot more open.

"It was a scrappy game but I thought we were well in it and I thought we matched them. We had chances to score and we forced corners so I think overall we're disappointed we didn't come away from the game with at least a draw.

"Swindon's goal came against the run of play and we had a corner kick that got cleared and we switched off for a moment from a throw-in. That cost us because we need everybody concentrating and unfortunately at that moment we didn't and they scored.

"Once they went ahead they made it very difficult for us and we couldn't break them down.

"We threw a couple of forwards on and went for it but I thought we did well."

nd we always will love Ozil. I don't really mind if no other team can see just how brilliant he is, or if people think he is rubbish, because we know he is far from it. He is a fantastic player, and if people cannot see that it can only be a good thing, in that he will be at Arsenal for years to come, pulling the strings from behind a glass veil.

like the list and Ozil in particular does seem under appreciated when you look at his stats (an odd thing considering his fee or maybe because of it). Palace have a few and I've always thought Dwight Gayle at Palace was under rated, certainly when you look at his goals per game ratio. You can probably also add Ryan Bertrand at Saints who should be in the England team in my view.

ew Shaun Wright Phillips, there I've said it. If any club offers stupid money we'd be stupid to say no, he's not a potential worldie by any stretch and I feel that after a few years warming the bench at city or Chelsea he'll be back at QPR smoking sheesha pipes under Harry Redknapp.
