Derby draw not enough for Sir Alex Ferguson


Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was not entirely satisfied with a point from a goalless derby encounter with Manchester City at Eastlands.

A game of few chances for either side failed to live up to its pre-match hype and Ferguson was not content with a result which dropped his side four points behind league leaders Chelsea.

He told Sky Sports:"City are very difficult to beat on their own ground and obviously they set their stall out.

"I think there was too much tension for it to be kind of match people thought it would be. They set their stall out in the second half and made it very difficult for us.

"It's a decent result, but we don't count draws away from home as the target before the game. Our target is to win the game and I think we had enough possession to do that.

"Some of our football was good, we were good on the ball, but we needed to create openings to win the match and we only really made two, which was difficult."
