But speaking after the match, Maguire decried United's lack of incisiveness upfront, adding the attack-line missed clear goal-scoring chances.

"[We are] disappointed. We conceded at an awful time at a stage where we started the game really well," he told MUTV after the match.

"The first 20 minutes we were well on top, we have got to score in that period, with numerous chances. The quality in the final third wasn't good enough to create a real clear cut chance," he added.
