Pearce: It was a scrappy game

Pearce said: “It was a scrappy game and I don’t think either team deserved to win or lose.

“I am disappointed that we have not shown enough creativity and energy. We were trying to win the match but we need to show a touch more than that.

“But we are still unbeaten at home and it is a big lift to Joe Hart to keep a clean sheet on his debut.”
