Suicidal defensive play says Turner

Graham Turner spoke to Sky after last night's game at Cambridge.

Asked what cost his side the game the Hereford United manager replied:

"Suicidal defensive play. The first goal was ridiculous.

"I don't think they had too many chances. Not caused us any problems at all apart from the odd ball that got in the box for their big lad.

"Generally we defended that quite well. We defended the second ball quite well, but out of the blue we tried to run with it and got caught in possession and paid the penalty for it.

"I thought we had some good situations. I thought we had some decent chances and we should not have gone in one down. And I thought when we equalised, we would go on and win it.

"To be fair to Cambridge, they showed a lot of spirit, a lot of tenacity.

"We didn't play as well as we can, but we still created some good situations and should have done better from them."
