Blackburn Rovers manager Sam Allardyce has slammed the "stupid" defending that he says costs us during the 3-1 defeat at Eastlands on Saturday.
Two errors in the Rovers defence enabled Manchester City to take control, and a third just before the break left us with an uphill mountain to climb.
Allardyce told Sky Sports: "We were quite comfortable for most of the game apart from losing two stupid goals from corners so that's been our Achilles heel today.
"We've suffered a loss that I'm surprised about. Particularly the way we started the game and how comfortable we looked.
"Trying to battle back from two-nil down is very difficult under any circumstances, but away from home it was always going to be difficult.
"To rub salt in the wound there was the penalty before half time. It made it an almost impossible task."
3-0 down at half time meant that the match was effectively over but Allardyce was happy that we at least improved things for the second half.
He added: "At least we went out in the second half and played as well as we did in the first, got a goal back and tried to get the second to put a bit more pressure on, but couldn't find the quality needed.
"At least we defended correctly in the second half and like I said, tried our best. So performance wise, in general play, I was pleased.
"The two lapses of concentration have been very, very disappointing as it's very unlike us to concede goals from set plays, but two is very unusual."
Our own destiny is still in our own hands, but this defeat NEEDS to be quickly corrected or (assuming results go against us) we could soon be back into big trouble again!!!
