Allardyce 'gutted' by draw

ALLARDYCE'S VIEW
Bolton boss Sam Allardyce was disappointed after his side threw away a late lead against Manchester United.

"I'm absolutely gutted," said Allardyce. "We did the most criminal thing which is concede a corner on the stroke of half time and they scored.

"We recovered from that, scored and then went on to dominate the second half, and we got the second goal.

"And then we commit the same crime, concede a corner and end up with one point instead of three."

He added: "It's a massive lesson about set-plays. Survival and relegation is won or lost on set-plays.

"Manchester United seem to have the midas touch over us and they deserved to nick a point at the end.

"We gave them one hell of a fight but credit to them for coming back like that."
