Sir Alex Ferguson admitted Roma played well and could have snatched a point against United on Tuesday.

'He (Kuszczak) made a couple of good saves and made a good block in the second half,' he said. 'Roma had a few good chances and maybe we can count ourselves a little lucky.'

'We've got the players. Sometimes you go through these spells but it won't last forever. Some day we're going to hit a few goals. Hopefully that will come soon. All the players are working hard and all showing a lot of experience.
