'˜The final ball in the final third and having the desire to get into position wasn't there.

'˜On top of that there were a high amount of set-pieces and corners.

'˜There were a high amount of corners from Lee Brown and there was nothing wrong with the delivery, but they were always first to the ball in the box.
