Neil de­fends goal­keeper Rudd

The Sunday Telegraph - Sport - - Football -

Pre­ston man­ager Alex Neil says he will not make goal­keeper De­clan Rudd take all the blame af­ter he let Maikel Kieften­beld’s aim­less punt through his legs in their 3-0 loss at Birm­ing­ham. “We are cer­tainly not go­ing to make a scape­goat of him,” said Neil. “He made a mis­take. It cost us the first goal – but we could then go and re­pair it, which we didn’t do. There is a lot more that went wrong than that mis­take.”
