Mutch Takes Positives From Disappointment

2 March 2016

Jordon Mutch was disappointed Palace couldn't see out the win at Sunderland on Tuesday night, conceding Fabio Borini's angled drive in the dying seconds at the Stadium of Light.

"I thought it was an open game," he said post-match. "Obviously I'm disappointed because we were so close to getting the three points, but I think it's a big point for us and I think we go into the next game looking to build on that, [it's a chance] to get some more points at home.

"It's a big game on Sunday and we want to get some points there," he added, referencing the Eagles' next Premier League game - at home to Liverpool.

Sunderland took a first half lead through a deflected effort by Dame N'Doye. His tame effort from distance glanced off Scott Dann's leg to wrong-foot Wayne Hennessey, before Connor Wickham's second half brace had put the Eagles in control.

"I thought it was a lucky deflection [and] we're getting bad calls against us at the minute, things aren't going our way, but I thought we regrouped well, came out fighting in the second half and I thought we were back to the same Palace attacking team that we started the season with," said Mutch. "Hopefully we can take that into the next game, get some goals against Liverpool and pick up some points."
