Crazy game, says Chris

17 April 2013

Chris Morgan was keen to keep his calm following Tuesday's 'crazy' 2-2 draw with Brentford at Bramall Lane.

In a game that quite literally had everything, Morgan was keen to focus on the performance of his players, rather than being critical of referee Keith Stroud.

Speaking after seeing Bradley Wright-Phillips net an 89th minute equaliser for the nine man Bees, Morgan remarked:

"I said in the dressing room to Darren (Ward) it reminded me of the play-off semi-final with Nottingham Forest in 2003.

"It was a crazy game of football. There were so many bookings, three red cards, and four penalties. Personally I didn't think it was a dirty game.

"The late goal is hard to take, but we will bounce back. After getting our noses in front and with Brentford down to nine men we should have seen the game out.

"Taking the positives from the performance though, we showed a real unity and character in the second half, in a pressuirused situation.

"I am sure a lot of people would have taken four points from the last two matches, but given the situation we found ourselves we really thought we would take six."

Analysing the game in more detail, Morgan added: "We grabbed the game by the scruff of the neck and went for it in the second half, we wanted to win the game and after half-time we did everything to achieve that.

"The lads were fantastic, each and every one of them. We were positive throughout, but we were bitterly disappointed with their second goal."

"Credit to Brentford they stuck in there and piled on the pressure, but you have to be able to handle what is thrown at you when the opposition are chasing the game."
