Moyes disappointed as Man Utd drop points at Cardiff

Manchester United manager David Moyes has revealed his disappointment after the Premier League champions gave up a 2-1 lead over Cardiff City in the final minutes of the match, ESPN has reported.

Goals from Wayne Rooney and Patrice Evra had put United 2-1 in front – with former United forward Frazier Campbell scoring for Cardiff – and Moyes feels United should have seen the game out. Instead, Cardiff substitute Kim Bo-Kyong scored a late leveller after Danny Welbeck spurned the chance to make the game 3-1 to the visitors.

I’m disappointed we didn’t take three points,” Moyes said. “Cardiff made game of it and put us under pressure. We gave away a silly free-kick which led to their second goal and didn’t defend it well enough. Danny Welbeck had brilliant chance to make it 3-1,” the former Everton boss added.

Moyes also believes an incident with Rooney and Cardiff midfielder Jordon Mutch was correctly handled by referee Neil Swarbrick, with Rooney shown a yellow card after appearing to kick out at Mutch. “The boy runs across his path and a yellow card was sufficient,” Moyes insisted.

That was not a lash out in any way sort of tackle. It was about feeling hard done by the boy running across his path,” the managed continued.

The result leaves United in sixth position, on 21 points from 12 games, level with Moyes’ former side Everton but a place higher than the Toffees on goal difference. Cardiff meanwhile are 15th, with 13 points from the season so far.
