#PLStories- Ralph Hasenhuttl reflects on Burnley draw #SAINTSFC

MANAGER Ralph Hasenhuttl admitted that he thinks the draw was a fair result but regrets “one minute where we were sleeping” which cost Saints all three points against Burnley.

Armando Broja’s storming run had put Saints ahead and in the driving seat straight after half-time but that lead only lasted a matter of seven minutes, before a long ball forward was nodded down to Maxwell Cornet.

Jan Bednarek was unable to get close to the strong Clarets attacker and he was allowed to sweep home past Alex McCarthy from outside the area.

It came after Saints had utterly dominated both before the break and after it, and likely should have been one or two more ahead.

Speaking after the game, Hasenhuttl admitted: “We saw a very lively game I think from both sides.

“We had a better first half after the early goal we conceded, we were after 15 minutes found in the game and found the right answer for this I think.

“Before half-time we had massive chances to score more than once, we were a little bit unlucky when Tino two times hit the bar I think. After the half-time, the message was clear. Come out immediately and find a way to the second goal.

“We did it. What happened then I think we had not so much control over the long balls, and especially when the goal happened not enough pressure on the long ball. The defending there was not good, we know this.

“This is their biggest quality and every long ball was a threat today. We had one minute where we were a little bit sleeping and they scored the second goal which killed our mentality a little bit.

He continued: “From that point on, we had not really a big chance, a few half-chances, the Tino one, a shot from Redders but not enough to come back and win the game.

“In the end, I think a draw is a deserved result for both teams, I saw some good moments from us and good moments for them. In the end, interesting game for a neutral supporter.”
