“It is two goals which could have been avoided again and that has been the disappointment of the last two games; we could easily have had six points and been out of the situation we are in,” Morsy said during a post-match interview.

“Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be and they were poor goals to concede from our point of view. We have to come together now.

“We have scored the opening goal in a lot of away games and I guess the fortunate thing for us is that we have got three home games and we have been pretty good at home all season,” he added.
