IH: Fantastic Second Half

12 January 2013

Ian Holloway reflected on his sides second half display at Burnley but was left frustrated at not getting anything from his trip back to the north west. 

"I thought we were fantastic in the second half. The goal came against the run of play but how we haven't got at least a point I do not know. 

"I think there was a spell in the first half where our positioning wasn't good enough, but that got better and we looked bright. 

"We pinned them back into their half but unfortunately I thought their defence played very well." 

As has become the normal of recent press conferences the boss was asked about the latest with any possible move for Wilfried Zaha. The striker in this game had 
to contend with constant attention and Holloway didn't feel that the referee always made the right call.

"We will wait to see what Wilfried, if he ever does, actually goes for and we can talk about that if and when it happens,

"Wilfried beats people and gets brought down and that is very frustrating for him but he has to learn to deal with it. You are asking a young referee to make some decisions and I think he got some of those wrong.

"I am pretty upset with the referee, who, as the away manager, didn't do me any favours whatsoever."
