Butt sets stiff target

"It wasn't good, to be fair," commented Butt. "It was the same story of giving silly goals away, not playing to our full potential and chasing the game. We were suspect to the counter-attack and they could have scored one or two more. It was disappointing we didn't perform the way we wanted to. We're much better than that and I've told them in the dressing room, even though they know that themselves.

"We just didn't really click. I don't know whether the lads are a bit nervous or not but they've got to realise you only get one or two chances at this level. You can't sit back. You've got to go for it right from the start. They are good lads and they know the game but the just need to impose themselves. In training every day, they're phenomenal but they just need to show it on the pitch for the whole 90 minutes."
