Bullen defends Odubajo after penalty misery

Lee Bullen defended Moses Odubajo after he gave away the two spot kicks that saw Preston run out 2-1 winners on Saturday afternoon.

The caretaker manager said: “Ultimately two mistakes cost us. But like I said to the players in the changing room, one thing we don’t do as a team is throw anyone under the bus or leave anybody hung out to dry.

“There is a kid in there that’s really disappointed but we get round him and back him up.

“He is a good player and he has played in the Premier League so he is a top-class player. He had an off day today.”
Bullen said he felt the two sides were cancelling each other out before the first penalty just after the half-hour mark and then had to chase the game after going two-down.

He said he was pleased with the last 20 minutes, particularly with the impact of the substitutes, and felt we just didn’t get the breaks in those closing stages despite creating opportunities, adding that “it was too little, too late”.
