MATCH QUOTES

"We lacked the ruthlessness that has maybe blighted us a bit this season. You could certainly talk about the amount of chances we've passed up in games. "Charles N'Zogbia could have had a hat-trick. He was looking very dangerous cutting in from wide on the right and he had a chance to put us 2-0 up when Robinson saved point blank. "We've got to move on and try to build on our performance in the first half. Paul Robinson made some fantastic saves, but in the second half Blackburn bullied us a bit." Alex McLeish.
