“The bottom line is that we gave away four daft goals and you can't do that against a team that has one of the best goalscoring records in the league,” said the Us' boss, a former Academy coach at City.
“I don't mind losing to a better side or to a wonder goal, but we didn't take our chances when we had our dominance in the first half, and if you make silly errors this is what happens.
“We can still catch Norwich. There are 22 games left and that's an awful lot of points to play for.
